Royal Canoe – “Bathtubs” Video / “Today We’re Believers” Drops September 3

by New Music Michael on August 22 2013

Last night I completely destroyed one of my inboxes – in that I went through 450+ emails and got rid of everything. But not before filtering out the best stuff to talk about, including this Winnipeg band.

Turns out I’ve never mentioned them on NMM before, but that’s a dastardly oversight. The folk-pop act has a certain je ne sais quoi about their melodies, with a summerlike bass groove that will captivate your spirit and soul. Witness their newest track “Bathtubs”, which you can stream the video for above. Been hearing this on a few satellite radio stations – probably mostly CBC Radio 3, though I switch from one station to another so quick it’s hard to remember.

Anyways, their newest album “Today We’re Believers” drops September 3 on one of our favorite Cancon imprints, Nevado. We wish them all the best luck in the world, though they probably don’t need it. They’re awesome, you see. Tour dates below as well.
