Pop band Caribou is back with a new track titled “Home”. This is the first single after the release of “Our Love” in 2014 and their return has been celebrated by BBC Radio One, which celebrated the song as “Hottest Record in the World”.
Figurehead Dan Snaith has been working and touring with his tech-house project Daphni, but fans are happy to see him back with this new song.
Speaking on “Home”, Dan confessed: “I’m always listening to lots of music and sometimes a loop just jumps out at me – it’s too perfect. That’s how it was with Gloria Barnes’ ‘Home’ – I kept returning to it, meaning to do something with it but not knowing what.”
He added: “Sometimes making music feels like a process I’m in charge of … but there other times, when things just present themselves and my job is to follow their lead. It wasn’t until the circumstances of someone close to me mirrored the refrain of the original song that the track all came together.”
The song is characterized by tropical sounds and interesting delicate instrumentals. The song also premiered on Youtube, where it is accompanied by colourful images. We will able to listen to the band performing the song live very soon, since the band is set to start a UK and European tour in 2020.
