The music of Korallreven is constructed along a simple philosophy: to create sounds that capture both the essence of a spiritual experience and the freedom of experimentation. Born in the South Pacific and illuminated by the changing scenery of constant motion, Korallreven’s music is dynamic and universal, never bound to a single geography. Place is just a state of mind.
The duo’s debut LP, An Album By Korallreven, was released in November 2011 by Acéphale and winds a blissful journey. With influences that include dream-pop, reggae, minimal techno and southern rap, Korallreven’s glittering production focuses on melodic evolution rather than following a distinct structure: lush, dubbed-out instrumentals pour into wistful vocal loops. Careful electronic builds give way to swirling acoustic parts. This is music for losing yourself and also finding yourself, sometimes in the same afternoon.
