Continuing Swim's water-music themed imagery, the new video for Caribou's 'Jamelia' is a misty-grey collage of seashore images.
In true Caribou style, it is as understated as it is complexly beautiful; at points it is uncertain if we are observing the rhythmical movements of Dan Snaith's moist muses from above or below the surface. The highlight of this tripped-out clip is the soaring of an eagle at the song's climax, set perfectly to the music - another beautiful addition to the breathtaking Swim collection...

Junip drummer, Elias Araya, found inspiration for the video in his father's art; painter and sculpture artist, Kent Karlsson.
Elias presents images in a simple, almost icon way using different backgrounds and refracted through a diamond. A few of his father's collection of porcelain dogs also made the video. We love it! Please share with your friends!!
Last April, Caribou challenged their fans to a remix contest. They shared the parts of “Sun” from their latest release Swim and waited to see what would happen.The winner was an enthusiastic artist named Altrice who gradually remixed the whole album and called his project Stem.
“For me Altrice’s entry stood out quite a distance from all the others. His version of the track was focused and distinctive – dramatically different from the original and the other remixes we received,” Caribou’s Dan Snaith said. “Altrice’s music is beautifully simple – focusing on only a handful of elements but ingeniously reinventing them to make each song very much his own. It’s this confidence that makes Stem so coherent – it doesn’t sound like an album of remixes but an album in it’s own right. The best possible outcome of the remix contest was to discover someone unknown to me whose music moved me. That certainly happened. And then some.” Dan Snaith
