Royal Canoe Premieres “Button Fumbla” Video

Royal Canoe Premieres "Button Fumbla" (Live Video) Announces Bonnaroo Date + On 'Today We're Believers' LP is Out Now On Roll Call Records

 

Royal Canoe has premiered a brand new video for “Button Fumbla.” The video, directed by Mike Maryniuk, was shot live at Private Ear Recording Studios in Winnipeg. The Canadian six-piece are currently on the road for a Spring tour through US & Canada with English indie rockers Bombay Bicycle Club and will be performing at Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival this June. Royal Canoe’s debut LP Today We’re Believers is out now on Roll Call Records.

A six-piece ensemble from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Royal Canoe give you everything, but on their own maniacally hybrid terms. It’s one thing to reference a particular style, or even a range of styles. It’s another thing entirely to grab huge handfuls of sounds from pretty much anywhere, throw them all together and come up with something both cohesive and totally distinctive—something that also happens to ripple and crack with energy. This is what Royal Canoe does best.

Royal Canoe’s dedication to crafting a seamless musical pastiche is obsessive. For live shows, they’d rather lug hundreds of pounds of keyboards, mixers and pedals across the continent (very much like a voyager canoe, in fact) than rely on lengthy backing tracks. They actually play every part, every time. And while their van is packed with hardware, much of that hardware is, in turn, crammed full of widely-sourced samples and adoringly homemade sounds.
