What the press are saying about Royal Canoe:

“Buckle up – the band is anything but your standard indie-pop. Known for their genre bending approach and their songs are clearly written with innovation in mind. We dare you not to dance.” -Filter

"[Royal Canoe's] super-inventive sound is unbelievably rich and catchy." -KCRW

"Winnipeg six-piece Royal Canoe makes the kind of music that begs to be played outdoors. On debut full-length,Today We’re Believers, big choruses and bongos form a joyful noise atop an electro pop collage that should be heard under the sun for maximum impact." -Consequence Of Sound

"..pleasantly catchy and full of lofty vox." -Noisey

“If you were to marry the harmonies and psychedelic pop of Animal Collective with the frenzied vocal phrasing of Modest Mouse and throw in the falsettos of the Temper Trap for good measure, you can imagine Royal Canoe’s sound.” -Baeble
