Watch Krewella's Acoustic Peformance of Global Hit Single 'Alive'


People who think that Chicago dance-pop trio Krewella is just an overnight sensation are sorely mistaken. The group's success has been long in the making and started back in 2009 when the group first hit the Chicago club scene with their peppy blend of pop and hip hop. Krewella's sound has evolved quite a bit over time, but the group's knack for hooky pop melodies and high-energy grooves has always been a part of their core DNA.

The trio's global hit single "Alive" encapsulates all of those elements and more. Too often dance-pop artists are looked upon by purists as talentless, unimaginative and just products of modern technology. To proof that they are not some sort of studio concoction, Jahan, Yasmine and Kris share an acoustic version of "Alive" that shows off their raw talent in its fullest glory.

This acoustic version of "Alive" also demonstrates the melodic power of the song that stands strong when stripped away from the production stylings that amplify the single version. This video clearly shows that Krewella are genuine, talented and passionate musicians with massive potential. There, I said it.
