‘Embrace your inner GODDESS’, say Raja Kumari, Krewella and NERVO with new collaboration
By Bandook - May 15, 2020
American EDM band Krewella have just released Goddess, a collaborative track with Australian DJ duo Nervo, which features Indian rapper Raja Kumari, via Thrive Music.
This marks Krewella’s follow-up to the successful Zer0 LP, which tied electronic music with pop, rock, and dubstep.
Commencing with an authentic Indian-inspired riff that nods to Eastern influences, the girls waste no time in injecting attitude and a bad-ass temperament. “I Don’t Stay Put, I Stay Grinding / That’s My Last Name Bitch, No Hyphen” is delivered with concise flair before the delectable layers of vocal chants make up the foundation for the track to soar. Presented as a feminist anthem of vigour, Krewella and NERVO’s production prowess overflows into a defiant, electronic-meets-pop track.
Raja Kumari states, “It’s always been part of my DNA to work with other talented women and continue to create more spaces for us to shine. When Krewella and NERVO came to me with a song they produced called Goddess, there was no hesitation to hop on it. I hope everyone, male, female, non-binary, will continue to embrace their inner goddess.”
Krewella states, “We wrote Goddess with Karra Madden, Nervo, and Raja Kumari, about the sense of empowerment that comes with recognizing and honoring the goddess that exists within, and all around us. Whether in a state of silently going inward or manifesting her dreams in the material world, the presence of the goddess gives heartbeat to all aspects of life. We produced the song out with our friends Cody Tarpley and Reid Stefan, and tapped into our Pakistani roots to honour the vision of Krewella blending east and west, with a bhangra-inspired beat and organic, tribal percussion.”
NERVO state, “We have been bumping shoulders at festivals with the Krewella babes for the past six years so it was so, so great to finally get in the studio together. The girls truly are incredible artists as well as such beautiful souls. We hope this track empowers other women to follow their intuition and run their lives like a GODDESS!”>
