After dropping New World: Part 1, the Yousaf sisters’ followup to 2016’s EP, Ammunition, Krewella unveiled a corresponding 28-date North American href="http://dancingastronaut.com/2017/06/krewella-announce-new-world-tour/" >New World Tour slated for Fall of 2017.
Yet the toils of tour orchestration have far from restricted Krewella from releasing an influx of new material associated with New World: Part 1. Last week, Krewella uploaded the music video for their Diskord feature, “Fortune.” Today, the sisters offer a sample of what is to come on the forthcoming New World Part 1: The Remixes EP, issuing two singles off of the EP, due in full on Monday, August 7th.
The complete remix package will feature takes by href="http://dancingastronaut.com/tag/havok-roth/" >Havok Roth, Vice City, and more re-imaginations of Krewella’s work that are preceded by href="http://dancingastronaut.com/tag/justin-caruso/" >Justin Caruso‘s spin on “Parachute,” and href="http://dancingastronaut.com/tag/dyro/" >Dyro‘s remix of “TH2C.”
Taking “a leap of faith, no parachute,” echoing the song’s lyrics in his remix initiative, Justin Caruso only slightly modifies the track, a gentle exposure of the Krewella sisters’ vocal range. Through the addition of a heavier, yet not overpowering, background bass line most prominently exposed at the track’s drop, Caruso lends a tempered intensity to Parachute.
On the rougher side of the remix package looms Dyro’s version of TH2C, a more overt distortion of the original track in that, while it preserves the vocals, it delivers a noticeable deviation in its incorporation of a grating dubstep drop that roars throughout the track, elevating the song from a vocally dependent defiance anthem to an immersive head banging number.
