100% The Arts Desk Around the turn of the millennium, when Dan Snaith started releasing music '€“ initially as Manitoba, then Caribou, and latterly also Daphni '€“ he tended to get lumped in with the folktronica movement.
100% The Guardian In the early 00s, he started out making critically acclaimed electronica that variously tilted towards psychedelia, krautrock and the wistful techno of Boards of Canada; he did it while studying for a PhD in pure mathematics, which added to its cerebral, rarefied air.
90% Music OMH Having released one of the best house tracks of 2019 '€“ Sizzling, under the Daphni alias '€“ Dan Snaith is back as Caribou for a record of lush sounds, inventive songwriting and his trademark muted but soulful vocals.

80% Pop Matters Suddenly is Caribou's most willfully experimental album to date, his soft, distinctive vocals flow through every track, binding the whole thing together.
80% The Skinny The title of Dan Snaith's latest album as Caribou is inspired by a word that his young daughter learned and began to repeat incessantly.
