Considered one of the hottest acts in dance music right now, Krewella delivers an anthem that drives home the idea that true love, like a powerful beat, can make one “feel alive.”

Krewella’s Yousaf sisters, Jahan and Yasmine, accompanied by producer Kris "Rain Man" Trindl, sing, “Take me home, where my dreams are made of gold 
/ In the zone, where the beat is uncontrolled / I know what it feels like
 / Come on make me feel alive.”

Originally released in 2012 and then re-released in 2013, “Alive” charted in nine countries and reached #9 on the U.S. Billboard Mainstream Top 40 chart. The song was “certified platinum” with more than one million copies sold. “Alive” is featured on the group’s 2013 debut album, Get Wet, which peaked at #8 on the Billboard’s Hot 200.

Krewella has headlined electronic dance music festivals around the globe. After the group’s performance at the Ultra Music Festival in 2013, Billboard magazine proclaimed, “Krewella is going to be huge.”

In an effort to raise money and awareness for those with physical disabilities, Krewella partnered with lifestyle brand Electric Family to produce a collaboration bracelet for which 100% of the proceeds are donated to Dance for Paralysis. The nylon bracelets cost $13 and already have generated $10 million for the DFP cause.

We invite you enjoy the video of Krewella’s beautiful acoustic version of “Alive.” The lyrics are below if you’d like to sing along.

Let's make this fleeting moment last forever
So, tell me what you're waiting for?
I'm gonna keep it frozen here forever,
There's no regretting anymore.
It's worth the wait, even so far away.
I'm making the night mine until the day I die
No lights to brake when you're hanging by fate
You know what it feels like when you're dancing blind
All alone, just the beat inside my soul
Take me home, where my dreams are made of gold
In the zone, where the beat is uncontrolled
I know what it feels like
Come on make me feel alive
Feel alive, feel alive
Feel alive, feel alive
Feel alive, feel alive alive alive alive
Alive!

Meet me under shining lights
I've been waiting right here all my life
Feelings you can't deny that you're living, open up your eyes
And I just wanna sink into your crazy laughter
Come on make me feel until the pain don't matter
Every second here makes my heart beat faster
Finally think I found what I'm chasing after
All alone, just the beat inside my soul
Take me home, where my dreams are made of gold
In the zone, where the beat is uncontrolled
I know what it feels like
Come on make me feel alive
Feel alive, feel alive
Feel alive, feel alive
Feel alive, feel alive alive alive alive
Alive!

All alone, just the beat inside my soul
Take me home, where my dreams are made of gold
In the zone, where the beat is uncontrolled
I know what it feels like
Come on make me feel alive
Feel alive, feel alive
Feel alive, feel alive
Feel alive, feel alive alive alive alive
Alive!

I know what it feels like
Come on make me feel alive
Feel alive, feel alive
Feel alive, feel alive
Feel alive, feel alive alive alive alive
Alive! Feel alive!
