Chicago-bred duo Krewella is back with the cathartic new song “Beggars,” available now to purchase HERE and stream HERE. The band returns with the first track from their sophomore EP Ammunition after releasing only two songs last year. “Beggars” debuts with a riveting new video today, a clear cry for more tolerance. Krewella’s deeper intentions behind the song are brought to life in the video HERE.
The mysterious cover art is a photo of a ghostly figure in black garb, intended by Krewella to serve as a kind of Rorschach test on our perceptions, personal fears and prejudices. Jahan eloquently explains it in a letter on their tumblr page. ‘It’s about looking behind the veil and past the differences,’ she writes, ‘while opening the door to envisioning the experiences of others…’ She closes by sparking ‘a dialogue of a very personal nature’ about the mysterious image in their always-open forum with their fans.
As for the blistering new track “Beggars,” the sisters have infused punk rock influences with their electronic core for their first release of the year. A thought-provoking tribute to the cult fans (or self-proclaimed Krew), “Beggars” explores the cutting edge of electronic pop for the song-writing sisters, and gears fans up for their return. Fans can catch Krewella live in Las Vegas on April 30, and in Los Angeles in June where they will headline the famed LA PRIDE Music Festival & Parade.
