Electric Family & Krewella Team Up for Dance For Paralysis
Chicago-based dance music trio Krewella have never been shy for the cameras, and their tour antics have even gone viral in their KREWLIFE web series. This time around, director Miles Evert offers a peek into a more emotional aspect of the electropunk sensation with a visual set to “Human.” In two short years, the trifecta has gone from playing illegal warehouse raves to becoming one of the biggest names in dance music. Their freshman album “Get Wet” debuted at #8 on Billboard’s Hot 100, their hit single “Alive,” recently achieved platinum status, and they’ve sold out venues around the world. However, all of their success did not come without a toll. Their new music video depicts the struggles they’ve endured and their human vulnerability through their journey.
In conjunction with the release of their new video for “Human,” Krewella have announced their partnership with Dance For Paralysis and Electric Family. “Our goal is to provide the proper medical resources for those with paralysis so that one day they can join us for a dance,” says Thomas Smith. Smith founded Dance For Paralysis after he sustained a second paralyzing hockey injury in October 2009. “All parties involved strongly believe that by working together, we will become a beacon of hope for those living with paralysis.” 100% of the proceeds from the Krewella bracelet will be donated directly to Dance For Paralysis.
Electric Family is an EDM lifestyle brand that allows artists to support their charity of choice through a custom artist series bracelet. Co-founder of Electric Family, Steve Brudzewski, says, “It is our mission, along with Krewella’s, to show the world that together we can make a significant impact improving the lives of others.”
