Released on Berlin-based label City Slang, Dan Snaith’s second album as Caribou displays the full potential of his extraordinary talent as a songwriter and multi-instrumentalist: Andorra is made up of organically progressing chord sequences. Snaith slowly builds up his wistful structures to an immersive wall of electronic sounds (‘Niobe’) and plays with contrasts effectively in juxtaposing them with the simple electric piano arpeggios of the melancholic ‘Irene’, and the uptempo ‘Melody Day’. His soft vocals narrate through these multi-instrumental textures, they are the thread piecing together this emotionally moving album.
