Caribou Announces World Tour Release Swim 4/20

CARIBOU ANNOUNCES WORLD TOUR, MERGE RECORDS TO RELEASE SWIM APRIL 20

Caribou
Caribou is pleased is to announce a world tour beginning in Manchester, England on April 19th. The North American leg of the tour will begin on May 3rd in Toronto. Merge Records will release Swim, Dan Snaith's new album, on April 20.

If there is a link to previous album, Andorra, it would be in the ravishing explosions of sound pulsing through album closer "Niobe." A continuum of sorts leads us to 2010, but that finale gives mere hints as to the future Caribou. From the opening effervescent gambol of "Odessa" to the glorious odyssey of "Jamelia," it is crystal clear that Caribou has made a massive leap forwards, upwards and sideways. Swim is full of brightly textured, rapturous gems that gleam with astonishing production – and then wrenches at your heart with soulful, thoughtful reveries on the passing of time, family history and the breakdown of relationships.

This year will also see a dramatic difference in the Caribou live performance. Now that technology has finally caught up to Dan's ambitions for the band's show, while it will still be four musicians onstage, the dynamic interplay between visuals, electronics and the live sound is totally pliable.

The band can play the mix onstage like a dub mixer would - but even more so than a Lee Perry because almost everything can be manipulated - not just the things that are controlled on a recording studio mixing desk. They can get that washing-around feeling and the unpredictability of sounds undergoing changes all the time. They say it takes a few years for the new century to kick in, here we go.
