Published Aug 20, 2015Blissed-out Swedish pop duo Korallreven returned with another slab of Balearic greatness on last year's Second Comin', but sadly they won't be com in' ever again. Instead, the duo of Marcus Joon and the Radio Dept.'s Daniel Tjäder have decided to shut down the project for good.
The duo shared their final single "Here in Iowa," which is available to stream in full below. Further, they announced their departure with the following statement:
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.
"Here in Iowa" will be released digitally via Cascine, as well as on a limited-edition picture disc via Be Here Records on September 18.
