A new one from Royal Canoe popped into our inbox and we just couldn't help but move when we heard the guys' latest, "Show Me Your Eyes". If you're just hearing the Winnipeg-based six piece for the first time - buckle up - the band is anything but your standard indie-pop. Royal Canoe is known for their genre bending approach and the songs on the latest release Purple and Gold were clearly written with innovation in mind. "Show Me Your Eyes" combines falsettos and irresistible toe tapping rhythms - we dare you not to dance.
Download the lead track below and be sure to check out their latest digital 7", Purple and Gold, which releases tomorrow through the band's official bandcamp page and iTunes. The release will also feature remixes from Ryan Guldemond of Mother Mother and Tim "DJ Co op" Hoover. The physical version will be available on October 8.
