Caribou – Suddenly
Since starting up the more dancefloor-orientated Daphni, Snaith has increasingly used Caribou releases as spaces in which to try out new styles and go deeper on his songcraft. This trend continues on Suddenly, arguably Snaith’s most sonically adventurous and stylistically varied album. Snaith has often been likened to Arthur Russell, but rarely have such comparisons felt more apt than on Suddenly’s opening track ‘Sister’, a spare number in which he coos softly atop aquatic synth sounds. This vibe is maintained on the following number ‘You And I’, its lilting drums and keys invoking Russell’s Calling Out Of Context.
