When we listen to Korallreven's music, the first things we imagine are not: mushroom clouds, explosions and building imploding. Maybe horses galloping though. The point is music like this works best when it's subverting expectations. Yeah, this could end up being a video of people smiling, maybe a woman pouring a cup of coffee on a veranda while staring at palm trees. Or, like, a dude moving into a baller new apartment with his new wife and being all smiley about it. But instead it's some pretty destructive shit. Happy music for dark times. If you're looking for a little more oomph, though, you can download the Ghostape remix of the very same song below. The whole thing gets stretched out with constant drums that make us feel like we need to climb a mountain very rapidly. Get the record here.
