Korallreven (Marcus Joons and Daniel Tjäder of The Radio Dept) returns with new single ‘Try Anything Once,’ one of their catchiest moments to date. The single is rich in texture thanks to Japanese legend Cornelius on background vocals and a Swedish gospel choir that enters at the 3:00 mark. Throughout the song, the baggy, blissful sound of the debut album is recognizable, but a window to something new made clear.
‘Try Anything Once’ is the first new material from Korallreven since their debut album, An Album by Korallreven, on Acéphale in fall 2011. The album received high marks for its paradisean mix of dancehall, church choirs and Houston hip-hop. Hits such as ‘As Young As Yesterday’ (featuring Taken By Trees‘ Victoria Bergsman and ‘Sa Sa Samoa’ (featuring Julianna Barwick) were some of the most blogged about singles of the season. Following which, the Swedes played stages across North America and Europe.
The band is currently finishing album number two.
