The ladies of Krewella extol the virtues of seeing a sea of dudes singing along to female vocals

Hearing a song on the radio for the first time is always exciting. Hearing your own song on the radio for the first time is even cooler. When Krewella came to Denver earlier this summer for Global Dance Festival, we got to witness this monumental moment for the act, as well as see them experience Red Rocks (where the outfit will return tomorrow night to warm up for Savoy) for the first time. The Chicago-based trio, which is made up of sisters Jahan and Yasmine Yousaf and producer Rainman (aka Kris Trindl), took some time between their three sets that day, which included a stop at Beatport, followed by a set at Global and then a final spin at Beta, to chat with us about dropping out of high school, how it feels to be "Killin' It" and how awesome it is to see dudes singing along to female vocals.
