In the summer of 2015, a young producer named Oxblood reached out to Korallreven. He wanted them to know how much their music was inspiring his own creations. Over time a friendship unfolded and Oxblood began sharing demos with the band. Introspective and celestial, it was clear to see where the overlap occurred. Korallreven’s contemplative arrangements were present in Oxblood’s music, but they appeared as mere brushstrokes - stars streaking the night sky. Oxblood’s material is distinct in its own right, pulling more from progressive house than pop.
Months later, following many emails and a hang in Brooklyn, track 'Teenage Crush IV' was born as an official collaboration between artists.
While 'Teenage Crush IV' was taking shape, so were big changes for both Oxblood and Korallreven - Oxblood graduated college and launched a stunning two track single titled, How Long Is Forever. And in the fall of 2015, after releasing 'Here In Iowa', Korallreven disbanded.
