Dan Snaits"Swim" - ein musikalisches Meisterwerk

Vergesst den sphärischen, psychedelischen 60s-Sound, mit dem man CARIBOU in Verbindung brachte: hier der CARIBOU Sound der Zukunft! Vom quirligen Opener "Odessa" bis hin zur herrlichen Irrfahrt des letzten Tracks "Jamelia" zeigt sich in diesen 9 brandneuen Songs mehr als deutlich, dass DAN SNAITH mit "SWIM" einen Riesensprung nach vorne und in alle nur erdenklichen Richtungen gemacht hat.

"SWIM" ist voll mit Song-Juwelen und, träumerischen Textfragmenten - in gleichem Maße von DAN SNAITH umwerfend schön und tauglich umgesetzt:“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, ”DAN SNAITH selbst.

Dan Snaith's "Swim" is just amazing!

If you think you know CARIBOU, think again. DAN SNAITH’S new album, SWIM is the sound of the musical glass ceiling being blown away. A continuum of sorts leads us to 2010, but that finale gives more hints as to the future CARIBOU. From the opening effervescent gambol of ‘Odessa’ to the glorious odyssey of ‘Jamelia’, it’s crystal clear that CARIBOU has made a massive leap forwards, upwards and sideways.

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. 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 dancefloor-ready as DAN SNAITH. “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,” SNAITH says.
