premiere: hear Korallreven’s farewell song (RIP) “Here in Iowa”
As huge fans of Swedish duo Korallreven since the beginning, this is a bittersweet post for us, as Daniel and Marcus say goodbye forever with one of the most beautiful and vibrant tracks they’ve ever released. The duo says (kind of heartbreakingly) that the wistful, gleaming “Here in Iowa” “underlines exactly everything we wanted to do from the beginning but never yet achieved.” :'(
“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”
We’ll miss you guys. “Here In Iowa” will be released digitally via Cascine (worldwide) + Tuf Luv/Sony (Europe), and on picture flexi-disc via Be Here Records. Come out and say goodbye to Korallreven at the group’s last ever US show, as part of Cascine’s 5YR event at Brooklyn’s Wythe Hotel on September 17th.
