Korallreven – Death Is Not For Us

November 4, 2014

Korallreven’s 2011 debut helped me to realize that synth pop can come in many different shapes and forms. There’s something abstract, something inherently refreshing about their approach to the electronic pop genre. And it’s fair to say that this record was one of those that helped me to understand and build upon my own always-expanding musical pallet. So you can imagine my excitement for this week as we see Korallreven return for their highly awaited (3 years, to be exact) sophomore LP Second Comin’. And while I might be a bit biased, this is easily one of the best records I’ve heard all year — starting with the absolutely brilliant opening track “Death Is Not For Us”. So be sure to take some time out of your day and submerse yourself in this dreamy, infinitely unique record that’s sure to be on repeated listening here for quite some time.
