Our Love is the seventh studio album by Canadian musician Dan Snaith, released under the moniker Caribou on October 6, 2014 by City Slang worldwide and October 7, 2014 by Merge in North America and South America. It is Snaith's fourth album as Caribou, having released his previous album, Jiaolong, as Daphni in 2012. It features collaborations with Jessy Lanza and Owen Pallett.
Our Love, his first album as Caribou in four years, is his first full-length that doesn’t come with a major shift from the sound of its predecessor. This is body music on the same general wavelength as Swim, albeit slightly warped and refined. The differences, then, are deeper: this is Snaith’s most overtly personal record to date, one that’s remarkable for its intimacy, openheartedness, and joy derived from basic human connection.

Caribou’s sixth studio album comes from a man whose efforts in other genres prioritized playful reinvention over regurgitation. Unlike the Krautrock tendencies of 2005’s The Milk of Human Kindness or earlier work that mixed psych pop with IDM, Our Love sees Snaith returning to dance music’s core. Its blissful songs Julia Brightly and All I Ever Need outline the shape of the human heart, but never wallow enough to puncture it. If he wanted grittier tracks that could catch a few beads of sweat on the dancefloor, Snaith would have reshaped them under his Daphni moniker.
Much of Our Love sounds like what you'd expect from post-Daphni Caribou. Silver" updates the '60s-obsessed psychedelia of his earlier work and refits it with humid, billowing synths, but the way its outro bursts into searing krautrock guitar is classic Caribou. The title track reaches for the same festival heights as "Sun," but trails off into deep house pastiche, all bumping basslines and vamping ly shallow for an artist whose best songs have a way of stirring complex feelings in the listener . Mars" is essentially a banging Daphni track with flutes. Best of all might be "Back Home," a stark ballad that explodes into surging synth pop à la Depeche Mode at their angstiest.

The move toward the dancefloor that was hinted at on Swim is brought into full focus on sixth full-length Our Love, a collection of ten powerful grooves that still manage a bit of Snaith's trademark psychedelic production. The underwater-sounding loop of electric piano and slowed-down vocals that begins album opener "Can't Do Without You" lingers for a while in a soft, welcoming way, setting the tone for a good minute and a half before the song's beat drops, offering the most good-natured take on a house track imaginable
