EP Review: “Ammunition” by Krewella

13221461_1119630148096373_4165583992012679877_nI’m so excited that I get to do a new review! Now you’re wondering how I’m even doing this review, well let’s say I’ve never been so happy for YouTube in my life!

Krewella is a group that has had some rocky times over the past two or three years, but they’re still touring and released a few singles here and there so I mean they haven’t disappeared as much as their haters wish.  I love Krewella, but I am a supporter of female in music. I think Jahan and Yasmine have gotten a bad reputation from some punks and nobody’s paying any attention to the dedication in their music and to their loyal fans. So when I found this after three days that Sirius XM played their newest track “Broken Record,” I was like is there any more? And then I found the motherload and I haven’t been the same since. So let’s get this shit on the road!

Starting with track number one, it’s called “Beggars” and it features Diskord, which like always I have never heard of before. I didn’t know what this song would sound like but as I’ve been hearing the newer stuff I’ve noticed that the girls are getting louder and maybe a little bit bold in the direction they want to take their sound. This one is a banger. It is so fucking good! It gives that dirty, raw vibe and I really like the almost Hollywood Undead kind of sound because it’s fierce and the music video has this dark and punk look, which I like a lot. It starts off pretty eerie and then boom! It doesn’t sound like the regular electronic dance music you’re used to hearing on the radio, but I don’t see what’s so bad about that! It’s pretty badass!

These ladies don’t just create their own tracks, but they also do their own vocals, which is something that I hardly ever hear out some of the guys of EDM. They have gorgeous voices and I like it when they share them in the slower tracks like “Broken Record” and this doesn’t even have a thick dance vibe, it has a good beat don’t get me wrong or anything but it just sounds like a pop song with multi layers. It’s very unique! Third is “Marching On” and oh man, do I love this one! For one, it has a slow intro and it sounds sort of sexy, which wasn’t something I was expecting but I love surprises! I really love the drop, but it’s kind of hard to explain because it’s not a bass-y drop. The sound intensifies and tempo increases creating different drum sounds within; it has an exotic sound to it that is amazing!

 Next up is “Surrender The Throne” and this is another with a slow, mysterious beginning but it leads into a nice drum beat and Yasmine’s gorgeous vocals. I don’t necessarily like this one, mostly because there’s nothing special about it. It makes me think of their track “Somewhere To Run” in different sections but other than that, that’s all I can say about it. The title track “Ammunition” is surprisingly a slow track and I thought it would be heavier, but what really gets me is that I actually like it. I love the chill vibe and I don’t know why, but it makes me think of somewhere along the beach. It’s a “feel good” type of song. It has a good beat to it. It’s just got me speechless! Last song is “Can’t Forgot You” and I like the lyrics and message of it. It sounds like a normal pop song and I like it. I can’t say I love it… yet. I think I’ll have to hear it a little more for it to get at that scale, but it’ll get there and so will “Surrender The Throne” too.

So I like four out of six songs? That’s not bad.

Have you heard Krewella’s new EP yet? What are your thoughts on it? Please don’t send me hate messages about the girls, I’ll just erase them!

May Playlist!

playlist

HA! You thought I wouldn’t do another one of these posts! Honestly I did consider it but since how much music I can still consume by my TV and YouTube (I’m actually watching music videos!) I knew I would still want to do some sort of playlist post for you guys. You may not get an exactly big one every month and certainly no Spotify playlist for a while, but I’m still hoping this will do!

I thought of only listing a total of five songs each month so I don’t have to waste paper in my notebook. I did start writing out songs in there and then I came up with this idea! So every month I’ll write a post of the songs I couldn’t stop hearing on the radio or on my iPod. I’m still giving you the song of the month and as for May it’s definitely “FML” by K. Flay the DJ Vanic remix. Oh my gosh, this is so good! Despite the phrase that is used throughout and in the title, the actual beat is intense and brilliant! If you haven’t heard of it yet, you need to! Does anybody know if the featured singer on it is Lorde? Because she sounds just like her! Anyways, onto the monthly playlist!
