The Canadian’s last studio album was 2014’s “Our Love” but he has since released music under the moniker of Daphni including 2017’s ‘Joli Mai’ and this year’s ‘Sizzling’ EP.

Snaith released his first material back in 2001 as Manitoba but an impending lawsuit by Richard Manitoba of punk band The Dictators, mean’t that he had to drop the name . In 2005 he started recording as Caribou and released “The Milk of Human Kindness”.

His latest offering is a soulful track centred around a Gloria Barnes sample from her 1971 song of the same name. You can listen to it here:
