Canadian sextet Royal Canoe deliver a bright, percussive style of indie pop, high on multi-instrumentalism and tuneful, layered songwriting. Formed in 2010 from the ashes of several prominent Winnipeg bands, Royal Canoe came together around the songs of frontman Matt Peters, counting acts like OutKast, Beck, and the Knife among their early influences. Along with guitarist Bucky Driedger, keyboardist Matt Schellenberg, bassist Brendan Berg, and dueling drummers Derek Allard and Michael Jordan, Peters and his crew recorded their debut, Co-Op Mode, which was released by Canadian indie Head in the Sand Records. A national tour introduced audiences to Royal Canoe's dynamic stage presence and complex, hooky sound, and in 2012 they followed up with the Extended Play EP.
