Caribou Announces North American Tour Dates

August 20, 2010

Caribou will return to North America next month for the second string of dates in support of the fantastic Swim, released earlier this year on Merge. Swim is an album that absorbs club culture sounds weaved within subtle pop frameworks, and the record Dan Snaith has wanted to bring to fruition for as long as he has been making music.caribou2

Snaith, a Canadian from small-town Ontario now based in England, has been a leading figure in electronic music over the past decade. A mathematics scholar and an ingenious multi-instrumentalist/composer, he surprised critics and fans with 2007's Andorra, a brilliant, electro-tinged pop breakthrough with a timeless grace that made most year-end “Best of” lists and won Canada's prestigious Polaris Music Prize. After the startling infectiousness of Andorra, Swim is a more complex, multi-layered affair—rife with fascinating rhythms, instrumentation, and vocals (including those of Born Ruffians' Luke Lalonde, who appears on "Jamelia")—that becomes more alluring with each listen. The album has put Caribou on the short list once again for this year's Polaris Prize.
