Korallreven release their sophomore album, Second Comin’, to surround themes of beginning again and trusting that incredible things are on the horizon if you deeply believe in them.
Elegant in its execution, the new music is set against a hyperpop landscape gathering washes of melodic arpeggios and Far East influences as it progresses. Japanese icon Cornelius joins the boys on track ‘Try Anything Once’ and I Break Horses’ Maria Lindén also guests along with members of the Tensta Gospel Choir. Percussion instruments from all over the world can be heard, including Indian tablas, Latin timbales and African clay drums.
The album’s art was created in collaboration with controversial Swedish street artist, NUG – the black swirls a signature NUG element while the pink slime serves a nod to lowbrow pop culture, to which vocalist Marcus Joons says, “Korallreven can be both a silk scarf and a can of slime.”
