I am far from resonating with the "PLUR" vibes and the hipster movement that has swollen the EDM scene. I mean sure, them lyrics are about "setting yourself free" and "living the moment" however we can't neglect the fact that this is coming from die-hard money-counters -it's Tiesto and Krewella for Christ sakes! I am not trying to be negative on purpose, well I guess all genre explosions throughout the years had an industry backing them up whatsoever, it's just that things were carefree in the past....
If you try and look up Krewella's tunes on YT, "Alive" will first appear in its acoustic version. It was the single that put Krewella in the map in the first place, it has some nice vocal lines and the whole song it directed to a person, that it's easy to figure out is functioning like a sunlight beam for your face
While promoting their album "Get Wet" Krewella always talked about how the tried to write one song for every human emotion; its that's the case , this will have to be equivalent for the tension and desire to break free, have some fun and filling your lungs with fresh air.
