Royal Canoe

By Nicholas Van Doeselaar

Pulling their name from a news headline, Royal Canoe has been a Winnipeg synth-pop band of choice for over a year now. What used to be a recording project for Matt Peters (Waking Eyes), the band has been filled out with members of the Liptonians and Tele and together they embrace the old, wooden, and royal sound their name gives off, yet still adventuring headfirst into electro territory as a means of complimenting their sick hooks. Matt Peters and Bucky Driedger were kind enough to sit down and answer a few questions about where the band has been and their upcoming Extended Play.
