Fellow IMF contributor Lior and I raced to our emails to give each other the same news: the wait is over! Dan Snaith has dropped a new song in “Can’t Do Without You” that will appear on his first LP under the Caribou moniker in four years, titled Our Love.
Dan Snaith’s compositions have always featured beautiful build-ups and swells, and this one is no different. It isn’t until almost halfway through that all of the pieces come together into quite the simmering, sexy stew. Lyrically, the sentiment may be easy to relate to, but this track is not at all a back-to-basics: It builds, it burns, and it tantalizes.
Our Love, featuring spots from Owen Pallett and Jessy Lanza, is out on October 7th.
