Watch out when taking a visit down reminiscence lane, as a result of as EDM duo Krewella seize on their new membership banger, it’s ‘really easy to get caught up to now.’
“Is it simply me, or do you ever really feel like time simply flies?” asks Krewella in the beginning of “Rewind,” their new tune with fellow DJ duo Yellow Claw. On this observe, Krewella – aka sisters Jahan and Yasmine Yousaf – get caught reminiscing about years and loves handed (“I’ve by no means been good at saying goodbye / so I’ mma let the recollections get me by). The manufacturing of “Rewind” strengthens this retrospective viewpoint. It’s as if listeners are experiencing a soundtrack to Krewella’s recollections. Whereas there’s a bit twinge of disappointment over what was misplaced on the previous, the tune – by its manufacturing and vocals – conveys a little bit of optimism for what’s subsequent sooner or later.
“We wrote ‘Rewind’ concerning the bittersweet feeling of shedding your self in recollections,” Krewella tells MeSlop. “How moments and feelings appear to fade within the blink of an eye fixed, and all of the sudden it’s a month, a 12 months, generally a decade later, and you’re feeling like every little thing you’ve skilled is a fictional story. The ‘you’ from the previous is a well-recognized stranger. You’re unhappy that it’s all gone, however completely satisfied that it led you to the place you might be proper now. They are saying nostalgia is sort of a drug, probably as a result of it’s really easy to get caught up to now, however this tune is about letting your self slip into it knowingly and revel in it with reckless abandon.”

“When zer0 got here out, our dad texted us this inspiring message saying how each single second is a chance to start out once more at zero,” Jahan informed Spotify. “I believe that’s such an excellent reminder. The phrase “zero o’clock” retains coming into my head—the concept this second is all now we have, and at any time when we’re holding onto the luggage of the previous or anxious concerning the future, it’s as a result of we’re not dwelling in that sacred area of zero.”
“It’s scary to launch a physique of labor you’ve been growing for thus lengthy,” added Yasmine. “However ultimately it is advisable let go, and I’m so excited and refreshed by the truth that folks can hear who we’ve advanced into, and the place we’re going subsequent as a result of every little thing is a stepping-stone. I like that persons are attending to know us higher, little by little.”
