Krewella – EDM duo from the USA
Krewella is a duo of two sisters, Yasmin and Jahan Yousaf. The name for the band was borrowed from the main character of the movie 101 Dalmatians, Cruella de Vil. The group appeared in 2007. Initially, it was a trio. The third member was a DJ and producer Kris Trindl. He left Krewella in 2014.
Yasmin, Jagan, and Kris met when they were still in high school. Soon, they decided to form a band. The group’s music includes dubstep, electro house, and other EDM directions. All band members have the same tattoo (6-8-10), which signifies the date they dropped out of school to pursue a career in music.
In December 2011, the artists signed a contract with Monstercat and presented a debut single, "Killin' It". The label did an excellent job promoting the song on social media and YouTube channels that focus on EDM music.
In June 2012, the band presented a debut EP, Play Hard. The album topped Billboard’s Dance Radio Airplay while the lead single appeared in The Pop Radio Airplay Chart. The band was quickly becoming popular. Many fans started trying to book Krewella for private events.
