Winnipeg, Winnipeg Capital Region, Manitoba, Canada
Royal Canoe is a Canadian indie pop band from Winnipeg and Steinbach, Manitoba.
The band calls Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, home – the enigmatic prairie city, which has served artists as both an abundant, creative watering hole and a debilitating quagmire. The city's mood swings from euphoric summers spent biking with beers, fence-hopping residential pools and climbing abandoned roof-tops to harsh, bitter winters that are countered first with defiance, then self-loathing, then denial, then "you've got to be fucking kidding me." Royal Canoe's songs are, in part, an effort to make sense of the resentment and romanticism of the city's divergent identities.
