Korallreven - An Album By Korallreven
Acéphale | November 2011
Years in the making, the Swedish duo Korallreven have been hinting along the way with mysterious singles and some pretty big named associates to garner up anticipation for what would become this November’s frankly titled, An Album By Korallreven. The album turns out to be a stellar course in marketing rather than pop music as the design, appearance and aura of the band outweighs any single musical insight they produce. The album is steady and quaint, but churns slowly into a meddling repetition of balearic, coastal chilled-out come-downs. The album seems very indoorsy for such a tropical motif. It would rather stay inside and play Sega than burst outside and have some actual fun.
