Caribou cut through strobe light on new single ‘Never Come Back’

Luke Sharkey

Caribou are right on the cusp of their new album Suddenly.

With just over a month left to wait for February 28th, Daniel Snaith has released a third single from the project called ‘Never Come Back’.

It’s the best track from the album so far, though one wouldn’t say that ‘You And I’ or ‘Home’ were exactly bereft of quality either.

‘Never Come Back’ is a pulsating house track. A chord progression, caught halfway between doubled electronic keyboard and filter swept synth, relentlessly provides the cut with a forward momentum the rest of arrangement tucks in around. A dry, four down, kick pattern and Caribou’s signature low fidelity open hats fill in the rest of the rhythm section.

The facete of ‘Never Come Back’ I came away from the song infatuated with is the chopped vocal sample. Not only do they provide a rhythmic inflection, highlighting certain key weak and strong beats in a given phrase, but the melody they carry is also a perfect counter to Snaith’s falsetto verse delivery.

Suddenly is out on February 28th.
