*** So think back to February, when a little known group surprised us all by capturing the hearts of America with the dance sensation "Alive", smashing up the charts with heavy support from the masses. Now they've been faced with the mammoth task of following their breakout smash, and when the breakout smash in question is the universal anthem "Alive", it's even more work. How have they done? "Live for the Night" is a bit 'harder' in the realm of dance music with a few hints of 'dubstep' and Zedd's "Spectrum". It's a lot less melodic than "Alive", especially in the verses, and I also feel it lacks the euphoric chorus and breakdown that no doubt contributed to the mass appeal of "Alive". Ultimately the rap-sung verses and general party theme are heavily reminiscent of 2010-2011's party tracks, and despite the 'harder' production that probably would have been too forward-thinking for mainstream radio audiences back then, I think music has moved on too much in the past few years for a song like this to fly today. It's got a solid hook and I can see why Krewella are undoubtedly the name on everyone's lips across the United States, but it doesn't really do it for me. While I don't want anything resembling a carbon copy, I would like something more in the vein of "Alive" for their next single. 3.25*
* ▒ Zeer slechte dansplaat uit eind juni 2013 van het Amerikaanse trio: "Krewella" !!! De zang wordt gedaan door de zusjes "Jahan" (24) en "Yasmine Yousaf" (21) !!! Deze zusjes zijn half Pakistaans, kwart Duits en kwart Litouws !!! De muziek en management wordt gedaan door "Kris Trindl", alias "Rain Man" !!! Wederom blijf ik op één ster steken ☺!!!
