Caribou is a master at crafting some of the best vibes. It’s been since 2014 that we heard new music from the Dan Sniath-led project. Today he’s shared a new song called “Home” that I’m absolutely loving. He’s been focusing on his Daphni project as of late and it’s amazing to hear him deliver some more Caribou.
“I’m always listening to lots of music and sometimes a loop just jumps out at me—it’s too perfect,” Dan Snaith explained. “That’s how it was with Gloria Barnes’ ‘Home’—I kept returning to it, meaning to do something with it but not knowing what. Sometimes making music feels like a process I’m in charge of… but there are other times when things just present themselves and my job is to follow their lead. It wasn’t until the circumstances of someone close to me mirrored the refrain of the original song that the track all came together.”
This is the first release since his 2014 album Our Love and picks up right where he left off. The grooving sample blended with slick instrumentation and silky falsetto vocals make for an extra smooth new song that will lift anyone’s spirits.
