Korallreven 2014

Swedish dreampop duo KORALLREVEN aka Marcus Joons and Daniel Tjäder have announce the end of their collaborative project after six years together. In the course of a farewell note the group presents one final song called Here In Iowa which they describe at ‘exactly everything we wanted to do from the beginning but never yet achieved.’ Read the full farewell note by the duo right here.

It has been a trippie trip, sort of a dream come true, sort of a dream become shattered. Kinda incredible how Korallreven, with this weird name in Swedish snowballed from bedroom recordings in Stockholm into a headlining US tour, festivals around Europe, amazing collaborations and all this love we have felt from all around. It’s been magic, but there is a time for everything and an end to everything too, also with Korallreven.

So, enjoy this single, as you would the last drop of fresh water in the jungle. It sort of underlines exactly everything we wanted to do from the beginning but never yet achieved. Lifelovingness, big words and melancholy in three and a half minutes, for the last time.

Daniel & Marcus

KORALLREVEN released two studio albums – An Album By Korallreven in 2011 and last year’s Second Comin’. We’ve became big fans over the past years and they’ll be truly missed in Europe’s musical microcosm. If you can catch their final US performance at the 5YR event of their label Cascine at Brooklyn’s Wythe Hotel on September 17th. Listen to Here In Iowa below.
