Caribou – “Can’t Do Without You”

By Chris DeVille / June 3, 2014 - 2:46 pm

Electronic dance music has always factored into Dan Snaith’s experimental psych-pop project Caribou, and that was never truer than on 2010’s fantastic Swim. But “Can’t Do Without You,” the first song Snaith is sharing from Caribou’s new Our Love, might surpass even Swim in terms of sheer dance-floor elation. The influence of Snaith’s buddy Burial is obvious here, but as it expands from hushed intimacy to widescreen lovestruck euphoria it could also pass for a more artful take on, like, Calvin Harris or Moby. It’s yet another wild reinvention from a guy who has pulled off gorgeous metamorphoses again and again, and I can’t wait to hear what else Snaith has up his sleeve. In the meantime, listen to “Can’t Do Without You” below.
