If you’ve ever imagined what it’s like to experience having a very slow rollercoaster ride, then you should listen to Caribou’s “Bees.”
It’s exhilarating, but in a mild way. There’s the promise of asencion and falling back down, without the sudden palpitation brought by fear. You made your way up slowly and you fall back down with a parachute, able to absorb everything you see, feel, and hear.
I was deep in the suggested song rabbit hole in Spotify while playing “Fanfare” by Magic City Hippies when this song came up, and initially I thought it would drag me, and then I remembered that the pair is known for unexpected twists in their compositions, so I held on. And boy, it was worth it.
Strap yourself and enjoy.
