Swim is the fifth album by Canadian mathematician and composer Dan Snaith, released on 20 April 2010 by City Slang and Merge. It is the third album credited under Caribou and deviates from the psychedelic pop and took influences from various kinds of electgronic dance music, especially deep house and minimal techno.
The album was, according to Snaith, "pretty much me getting up every day and wanting to work on music. Working constantly on it. Making loads and loads and loads of music and then just sifting through to find the bits that I like". Playing more DJ gigs, such as those at London's Plastic People, influenced the musician to embrace dance music and a greater range of frequencies in his music, which led to the formulation of Swim. Nevertheless, about 700 songs, some unfinished, didn't make it onto the album.
