Korallreven Says Farewell w/ Final Song & Shows

August 20, 2015

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.

 

Arrivederci,

Daniel & Marcus

 

Korallreven will play two final shows: Sept. 17 @ Wythe Hotel in Brooklyn, and on Oct. 17 @ Debaser Strand in Stockholm.

Mark McGuire is The Road Chief

June 30, 2015

Excited to be doing an album with our friend Mark McGuire under his pop alias, The Road Chief. The record's first single 'Summer Eyes' is a bouyant summer jam written when Mark was living in LA and working on a film score. “During the day, I’d get little breaks and just drive around North Hollywood smoking weed and listening to the early mixes of the tracks. Those days were all about bright, sunny midday vibes, glass sparkling-water bottles, coconut milk shampoo, sunscreen smells, the leather interior of the car getting hot in the sun...glimpses like that.”

Slime by Korallreven + Spirit Away

October 2, 2014

Called the “All-healer,” Slime by Korallreven is one of the most effective slimes for healing people, plants and animals. Natural unpolished slime is particularly helpful placed where plants will not grow or animals refuse to sit. It also counteracts negative earth energies beneath buildings or anywhere that feels hostile.

Slime by Korallreven protects against psychic attack, paranormal harm or ill-wishing, and returns the energy back to the universe after being transformed into positive, loving energy. To increase this power and attract good luck, draw an image of the sun and the crescent moon over your Slime by Korallreven in lavender incense smoke.

Slime by Korallreven is also referred to as the “couple’s slime” and gives meaning to relationships that over time, transcends the carnal union and gives way to deeper connection and a more soulful communion. Wear your Slime By Korallreven as an engagement or eternity ring for fidelity, or as a locket to call back lost love.

Purchase Slime by Korallreven here and listen their new single 'Spirit Away'.
