Dan Snaith’s breakthrough album as Caribou, ‘Swim’, is one of our favourites from the last decade and his music has stood out as continually being able to resonate on the first spin. So it comes as a surprise that ‘Suddenly’ is uncharacteristically confounding. Notably quiet for a Caribou album, the hallmark of building, evolving tracks is dispensed with in place of tracks that flit and warp with no track ever really settling. Yet, the album is filled with moments of purer Pop than on previous releases. The album's finest moments and tracks, of which there are many, are subtle and less immediate than their predecessors yet retain Snaith’s ability to imbue each with soulful warmth. Put this one on regular rotation now.
