Caribou mastermind Dan Snaith made it out to Union Transfer last Thursday night for a dance-inducing performance. He, along with his three-live only bandmates, immediately got the party started with Caribou’s latest hit, “Our Love”.

The track is also the title of the current album, which was released in October. It appears four years after Swim, an equally electronic, high-energy album from Snaith that has come to characterize his current music style.

Snaith has been releasing music now for more than a decade and has shifted through nearly as many genres as you’ll find beer options on UT’s fall tap list. His current synth-filled vibes kept the bar’s draft station flowing up and down, as the crowd loosened into a continuous head-bopping state. Snaith kept the night to a focused and curated menu that shied away from his older, indie/alt rock and folkier styles in favor of playing through Our Love, with a few tracks thrown in from Swim.

A colorful light scheme matched the electronic beats, while Snaith and his crew dressed head-to-toe in white to contrast the stage set. Snaith moved from keyboard to an electronic drum kit, situated opposite from another drummer. Both drum sets delivered much of the intensity for the show, with the night ending on a percussion-heavy “Sun,” another crowd favorite from Swim.

Caribou’s tour continues down the East Coast this week.
