Whilst Caribou tour the globe throughout 2012 in support of Radiohead, Dan Snaith has fallen deeper into his love affair with the dancefloor, to bring us a full length release as Daphni. The first Daphni album of shape-shifting works is Jiaolong, to be released on his own imprint
Inspired to work in a completely different way – setting aside the meticulous compositional rigours and musical layers underpinning Caribou songs – Dan Snaith-as-Daphni reaches out for a more feminine, fluid energy, and seeks instant gratification
Daphni’s first foray was a re-imagining of Cortney Tidwell’s ‘Watusii’ in 2009. Wrapping her vocal in a gloriously layered and tripped out fourteen minute bundle of joy, that snuck up gently, grew relentlessly and left listeners dizzy and euphoric, this musical template has been locked in place ever since
Exclusive tracks for this essential collection are the bubbling rat-a-tat of ‘Light’, the perfect synergy of percussive-zing and computer flash in ‘Pairs’, the Pterodactyl-swing of ‘Springs’ & the undulating finale of ‘Long’.
