Suddenly, Dan Snaith‘s newest record as Caribou, comes six years after his latest effort, 2014’s fine Our Love. Though he may have taken his time getting it out to the world, it’s certainly not an effort that shows any sign of complicated birth. If anything, its grooves feel natural and its melodies relaxing. We almost instantly fell in love with the chilled-out song of love and heartbreak, “Like I Loved You.” Though the lyrics speak of sadness and heartbreak, melodically it’s as warm and inviting as a hug from a long-lost friend. And that falsetto voice? Wow. We’re also hearing a bit of a “No Scrubs” vibe in the beat–another plus in our book.
