Royal Canoe is an indie pop band from Winnipeg, Canada. Their songs are unique, meaning that you’re definitely not going to find two that sound similar both on their album and on their EP. There’s an eclectic mixture of both electronic and indie influences (they sound almost like an energetic Alt-J), falsetto vocals, and a medley of instruments that create these incredible sound effect type noises. In this song titled “Bloodrush” from their 2012 EP Extended Play, a blend of techniques take place. There’s a supersonic feeling to the intro, a robotic sound to the vocals and guitar of the verses, but the delicate piano melodies that drive the chorus is really what sets this song apart from their other, more simple songs. Also, the vocals during the chorus are simply mesmerizing, given that Matt Peters has a voice that glides and swoons almost effortlessly. It ends with a chant, which gives the song as a whole a sense of well-roundness. Royal Canoe also released a full length album Today We’re Believers in 2013, so make sure to check that out!
