Caribou’s Dan Snaith shares first single under Daphni moniker since 2019 ‘Cherry’

Daphni aka Caribou aka Dan Snaith is back with “Cherry,” his first new track under the moniker since his 2019 EP Sizzling.

The dancefloor-ready, tumbling tune is full of spiraling, upbeat melodies and pulsing synths. Alongside the swirling track, Daphni has released visuals from Damien Roach aka @555×5555. The clip sees Roach using AI technology to create some mind-bending, twisted, psychedelic visuals of cherries that fit the tune perfectly.

“Nothing says love like an endlessly spiralling polyrhythm on an FM synth,” Daphni says. “Making this track was just a matter of getting the snake to eat its own tail.”

In March of 2021, Dan Snaith shared a remix album of his hit Caribou record, Suddenly. That collection features remixes from renowned acts like Four Tet, Floating Points, Toro y Moi, Jessy Lanza, Logic1000, Koreless, and more.

“Chaz is an incredible musician fluent in seemingly every musical vocabulary but with a sensibility all his own,” Snaith explained of Toro y Moi’s mix. “His remix is like an Alexander Calder mobile or a Kandinsky painting where the musical geometries of the original song circle each other in space.”

Snaith also recently reissued three early albums, but none of those were Daphni records. All three were Caribou collections, namely Start Breaking My Heart, Up In Flames, and The Milk Of Human Kindness.

“I’d been making music since I was an early teenager,” Snaith explains. “But the music on this album was the first time I felt like something had clicked. All of a sudden, I had a sense of what I wanted the tracks I was making to be.”
