Royal Canoe: Bathtubs

Living in Southern California by the beach where below 70 degrees Fahrenheit is considered downright freezing, I have a lot of respect for Canadian band Royal Canoe who cite their hometown as "a core influence for their work, in particular, Winnipeg’s extreme perpetual cycle through euphoric summers under gigantic prairie skies, to near-debilitating winters..."


Two EPs entitled 'Extended Play' and 'Purple & Gold' were released in 2012 and were followed up with the full-length 'Today We're Believers' last year.

The sextet will be touring North America with Bombay Bicycle Club between April 11 and May 19, but also have close to a dozen headlining dates scheduled this winter, spring and summer.
