Celebrity Tattoo of the Day (Krewella Sister Act Edition): Jahan and Yasmine Yousaf

Krewella_Pic06

    Earlier this year, the wide music audience got introduced to the synthpop beats of electro house trio, Krewella, with their first major hit, “Alive”.  “Alive” reached #32 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and provided a welcome party for the DJ’ing skills and passionate vocals of the sister act of this group:  Yasmine and Jahan Yousaf.

    Exotic names aside (they are half-Pakistani), Yasmine and Jahan (along with their  third member, Rain Main [Kris Trindl]) hail from the ‘Windy City’ of Chicago.  Below are some solo shots of the sisters so you know who’s who:

    The power of Krewella’s “Alive” has already guaranteed them repeated spins in my iPod workout playlist.  They are now starting to get some radio play on a new single called “Live For the Night”.  It dabbles in bit of dubstep on top of the synthpop and stellar vocals.

While they are now making their big splash on mainstream radio, Krewella has already been a major player in electronic dance music (EDM), headlining such festivals as Stereosonic, Spring Awakening and Ultra Music Festival.

They are also Twitter’d up:

   With their stunning beats, incredible vocals and fun, fierce personalities, Krewella should be a player for a while.  The music industry will benefit if they are.
