Korallreven are a Swedish electronic pop duo made up of Marcus Joons and Daniel Tjäder, who also plays in the bandRadio Dept. The duo’s dreamy, synth-heavy sound, which mixes shoegaze textures with dancefloor-friendly beats, isn’t far from the sound of fellow Swedes jj, the Tough Alliance, and Air France, as well as Panda Bear. They released their first single, “Loved-Up,” in July of 2009 for the Swedish label Service. They signed to the Canadian label Acephale and in April of 2010 released a 12″ of “The Truest Faith,” then followed it with “Honey Mine” (which featured vocals from ex-Concrete Victoria Bergsman) in October. By this time, the band was a favorite of bloggers who were impatiently awaiting a full-length album. After striking a deal with Swedish label Hybris to co-release their work, Korallreven returned in September with a new single, “As Young as Yesterday,” and the long-awaited album An Album by Korallreven in November. It featured all their previous singles and more guest vocals from Bergsman as well as Julianna Barwick.
