The surprise new single from Canadian Dan Snaith's longstanding electronic outfit, Caribou, carries forward the same bright synth stabs and dancefloor friendly energy as "Never Come Back" but with an even more joyful, motivational method. Taking a page out of the "Around the World" school of songwriting, the track features upbeat piano chords and a subtle swelling bassline anchored by the endlessly looping mantra of "you can do it." Its the fun, warm and fuzzy kind of tune we've come to expect and routinely enjoy from Snaith.
The song also has the distinction of arriving alongside quite possibly one our favorite music videos we've seen so far this year. Directed by Richard Kenworthy of Shynola, the video features scores of carefree dogs running through fields and catching frisbees in a refreshing onslaught of serotonin-triggering footage.
