It’s been five years since we last heard something new from Caribou, but the long wait is over.
Caribou – aka Dan Snaith – has just gifted us new track Home, a smooth groove reminiscent of The Avalanches.
“I’m always listening to lots of music and sometimes a loop just jumps out at me – it’s too perfect,” says Snaith of the track. “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 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.”
