#NOTMYPRESIDENT - an 8tracks playlist by whimsicalMedley
To the millions of women, people of color, LGBTQ+, disabled, and terrified. If we are set back, he will have to drag us, kicking and screaming. He will try to erase us, but we will thrive. We will not break, or bow. We will not surrender. We will not go down without a goddamn fight.

Krewella fans have reason to celebrate as the Chicago-duo have released their latest EP, New World Pt. 1 which is the follow up to previously released singles, “Team,” “Be There” and “Love Outta Me” which all appear on the EP alongside four new tracks.
The EP highlights the groups cultural roots and shows them experimenting with new sounds. The EP also marks their first independent release in five years as they have recently departed from their long-time label, Columbia Records.
While the reason for their split with one of Sony Music’s flagship label isn’t widely known in a message on Twitter the girls wrote the below about their independent release:
“It feels so freeing to create art from a liberate mindset without expectations.”
The timing of the release on a Thursday and specifically on June 8th isn’t just for kicks. June 8th is the day that the group decided to quit school and their jobs at the time to focus completely on Krewella.
While these girls are one of my favorites, it took me a little bit to get into this EP as its sound is a lot different from their previous stuff. “Parachute” is one of the stand outs for me and I’d love to hear the vocals over an Above & Beyond or a Kaskade trance beat.
Check out “Parachute” above and the rest of the EP HERE.
