New Video by Caribou and world tour.

As a studio project, Caribou is carried out by Snaith alone, but on tour the live band also consists of Ryan Smith, Brad Weber, and John Schmersal. More than a decade of touring across the globe has cemented Caribou’s reputation as much for being a live band as a studio project. Speaking about the video, director Ryan Staake said: “In ‘Our Love’, I wanted to create a slow, brooding film that contrasted the seeming limitless of youth with the reality of death in later years. The film (which was photographed by Luca Ciuti) was shot on location in Ireland, at the beautiful Lough Ine House, about an hour and a half outside of Cork.”
