Jahan Yousaf, Yasmine Yousaf and Rain Man of electronic music group Krewella have had quite the stellar past year. Riding on the heels of their hit single “Alive,” which received significant airplay and remixes from the likes of Hardwell, the group is poised to hit big sales on their album, Get Wet, which recently premiered on September 24.

The group comfortably straddles the line between pop and electronic dance music, carving out festival-friendly tracks with mainstream-friendly vocals. And it is perhaps this combination that has allowed the group to flourish. The video for their lead single, “Alive,” racked up over 16 million YouTube views, with the follow up “Live For The Night” cracking two million views.

Following their live performance at Ultra Music Festival, Billboard proclaimed “Krewella will be huge this year.” The numbers don’t lie, and their following is still rapidly growing. The trio is also due to host a live concert on Halloween as part of RPM’s Pier of Fear event series.

We were lucky enough to catch up with Krewella before the album launch to discuss the album, their rise in popularity and the success of their biggest hit to date, “Alive.”

Check out the video below.
