Royal Canoe Royal Canoe is a group of musicians on a mission to construct ambitious, inventive music. The songs are thick with catchiness, rich in rhythm and are consistently pushing against the boundaries of pop music.
"The genre-defying Winnipeg 6-piece unleash the restraints on inspiration allowing their sounds to traverse territory that more referentially self-conscious pop groups wouldn't cross." - CBC RADIO
"Royal Canoe have established themselves as musical mad scientists, throwing rock, pop and hip hop into a blender to create catchy-as-hell, dance floor-ready songs with odd time signatures and distorted vocals. Think of them as the child that would result, however inexplicably, if the Beatles, Peter Gabriel, Vampire Weekend, Outkast and Fever Ray had a hymn sing followed by an orgy." - The Uniter
