Caribou’s ‘Sun’ has undoubtedly been the one track that every hipster can agree on this summer. It’s warm and fuzzy vibe has been radiating from festivals, cool clubs and tastemaker radio stations almost constantly since April – yet the record refuses to diminish in popularity. Pitched somewhere between a minimal techno record and a synth pop ditty, the record’s ever surging swells of synthy goodness carry the listener off to a higher a higher emotional plane. Or at least that’s what it feels like after a few beers on a hot day!
The video for the track is a pretty odd one. A middle aged female interpretive dance troupe sway in what looks like a large English house while Caribou happily chugs away in the background. It doesn’t make much sense, but it looks pretty cool.
