 Korallreven Debut New Video for “As Young As Yesterday”

Perform First Live Shows in Europe

“With creeping, upbeat synth melodies (“Comin’ Closer”) and catchy drum loops (“As Young as Yesterday”), this is dream pop of the highest order.” – SPIN 9/10

“It’s an album of quiet excellence, one that aims to soundtrack your most idle thoughts while romantically demanding your attention.” – Pitchfork 8.1

“…the band’s lush, florid electro pop sustains an infectious pulse.” – Stereogum

Swedish duo Korallreven aka Marcus Joons and Daniel Tjäder (of The Radio Dept) have debuted a brand new video for their lauded “As Young As Yesterday” single featuring Victoria Bergsman (Taken By Trees, The Concretes) with Interview Magazine. Now we have a visual interpretation from fellow-Swede, Marcus Söderlund, whose distinct eye has previously brought to life tracks by The xx, Miike Snow, jj and many others. Shot on the coast of an urban neverland, the video shares the song’s celebration of youth and movement. Looking backwards as a concept is almost always bittersweet, but only if you’re standing still. What could be more exhilarating than casting your gaze back while hurtling forward?

Featured as one of Pitchfork‘s “Best New Tracks” and holding a steady #1 position on the Hype Machine charts for several weeks, “As Young As Yesterday” is taken from their debut full-length, An Album By Korallreven, out now with Acéphale. Korallreven recently made their worldwide live debut, performing their first shows ever in Europe with fellow Swedish outfit Air France. Check out some live photos at Line of Best Fit from their performance last Saturday in Stockholm.

Korallreven’s first single “Honey Mine” was released earlier this year to great acclaim, alongside their summer-released A Dream Within A Dream mixtape that featured an extremely well-received remix of Britney Spears’ “Till The World Ends.” They followed with “As Young As Yesterday, including remixes by Panda Bear and Girl Unit, and recently debuted their third single “Sa Sa Samoa” featuring Brooklyn-based vocal experimentalist Julianna Barwick. An Album By Korallreven is “crisp as Autumn in Stockholm” says BlackBook, “punctuated by sudden bursts from electronic synths and drums to kick up the groove.”
