Royal Canoe has made a name for themselves since forming in 2010, touring with the likes of Alt-J and Bombay Bicycle Club, plus earning a much deserved Juno award for Alternative Album of the Year and Best Independent Album at Western Canadian Music Awards. Last fall they released Something Got Lost Between Here and the Orbit after two years of writing and recording between tours. This time around the band concentrated on drums and vocals:
“Royal Canoe has always had an intensively rhythmic heart and that is more the case than ever. Their lyrics grow organically out of an addictive percussive flow and the unique topography of each track. Reinforcing their vocal and percussive core allowed them to be more adventurous with experimentation; more determined in their ongoing pursuit of the elusive musicality that can be found in collisions between digital and analogue worlds.”
Watch Royal Royal Canoe squeeze in to the Collective Arts Black Box to perform two songs from their 2016 album Something Got Lost Between Here and the Orbit.
