Sadly, but strangely satisfyingly, Korallreven, the Swedish Balaeric pop project of Daniel Tjader and Marcus Joons have announced that their collaboration is at an end. After two albums, An Album By Korallreven and Second Comin’, both of which gained places in our Top 30 end of year album lists, and by their own admission a rollicking good time, artistically and otherwise, the duo have decided to call time on their own terms. They go out at the height of their powers (in this space anyway) with a track that fittingly highlights all the elements we loved about them. ‘Here In Iowa’ mixes understated, thoughtful, breezy, danceable pop with wide open horizons. In their own words;

“It’s been an incredible trippy 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 the world. It’s been magic, but there is a time for everything and an end to everything as well, also with Korallreven.

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