Throwback Thursday with Caribou

From first hearing Caribou perform ‘Can’t Do Without you’ at Laneway Festival, ya gal decided to throw it back with all things Caribou.

If you’re into super lush, tropical tunes then Canadian composer, musician and recording artist Caribou is your dude.

Daniel Victor Snaith, better known as Caribou, has cemented his place in the electronic music scene since dropping his full-length album, ‘The Milk of Human Kindness’ (2005).

His immense talents were further demonstrated when the album topped the Campus and Community Radio Top 200 charts.

If you’ve ever seen Caribou live, Snaith will usually play percussion while performing alongside a live band comprised of the talents of Ryan Smith, Brad Weber, John Schmersal and Snaith.

Their live shows often feature innovative visual projections, as Snaith describes, “in music I will have an idea to put some different sounds together or a melody that meshes with a chord sequence or a sonic mood”.

Taking out the 2008 Polaris Music Prize was Caribou’s album, ‘Andorra’ (2017) and a few year laters, the ‘Swim’ album dropped which was further follower by Snaith’s studio album, ‘Jiaolong’ in 2013.

In 2014, Caribou was awarded the Essential Mix of the Year in 2014 by Mixmag for his ‘Essential Mix’.

Just if you thought he wasn’t talented enough, Caribou’s 2014 tropical, house flavoured album, ‘Our Love’ received the IMPALA Album of the Year Award.

If you need some new Caribou tunes it’s recommended you go check out his latest track, ‘Home’ which marks his first new music in over five years.

‘Home’ takes a warmer, more soulful tone as Snaith crafts the tune by combining some vintage horns an a sample from R&B singer, Gloria Barnes track that will have you groin’ around your living room.

Don’t wait any longer for quality music, go jump on these three banger Caribou tunes right here.
