It’s been a minute since we’ve heard from Winnipeg indie-pop outfit Royal Canoe. The wait is over this week with a new single and upcoming album announcement. We couldn’t wait to share the news with you.
Singer Matt Peters on the upcoming record: “We booked studio time, set up and mic’d all of our gear and then just pressed record and tried to let things happen. This is pretty much the complete opposite approach to how we made our previous three albums, where everything was very planned ahead of time. I think at first it felt like this arbitrary test of limitations that might go disastrously, but then we learned to trust ourselves, and follow the ideas as they came, whether it was a drum part, or a chord progression, or a recorder solo. It was really refreshing to capture these ideas in real-time as we were discovering them, and watch these songs start to materialize.”
Watch the video for Butterfalls below, and keep it locked to their socials going forward. The new album, Sidelining, is out July 9th on Paper Bag Records.
