After rapidly selling out his returning London show at Corsica Studios CARIBOU has scheduled another show of euphoric full band music, this time at Heaven. The new dates come on the back of the release of the amazing album Swim out on April 20th.
Dan Snaith AKA Caribou described the album’s sound thusly: “I got excited by the idea of making dance music that’s liquid in the way it flows back and forth, the sounds slosh around in pitch, timbre, pan… Dance music that sounds like it’s made out of water, rather than made out of metallic stuff like most dance music does.
The new single release ‘Odessa’ has been receiving 8/10 reviews, and a “best new music” review from Pitchfork.
This year we will see a dramatic difference in the Caribou live performance. Now that technology has finally caught up to Dan’s ambitions for the band’s show, while it will still be four musicians on stage, the dynamic interplay between visuals, electronics and the live sound will be taken to the next level.
If you think you know Caribou, think again. Dan Snaith’s new album is the sound of the musical glass ceiling being blown away.
Swim is full of brightly textured, rapturous gems that gleam with astonishing production – and then wrenches at your heart with soulful, thoughtful reveries on the passing of time, family history and the breakdown of relationships. “There are songs about growing old in a relationship, about divorce and loneliness in old age but the lyrics are generally pretty abstract sketches of what’s going on in the situation in my head.”
We can’t think of another multi-instrumentalist/ producer/ songwriter/ singer/ arranger/ composer who has the ability to harness all these talents into something as breathtakingly gorgeous yet dance floor ready as Dan Snaith AKA Caribou.
Peckham duo MOUNT KIMBIE have developed a truly unique sound, experimental rhythms that lend themselves to the fringes of dubstep and hip hop, but ooze with emotion and echoing ambient soundscapes that take the listener to an entirely different place. Their music is dreamy and melancholic, with a more playful feel than most dubstep.
Mystery-shrouded PATTEN’s new live show is a tripped-out head-body thing, saturating the air with heavy, unspooling reels of prismatic sound. Echoey skewed dancefloor.
