Canadian indie-pop outfit Royal Canoe hailing for Winnipeg has returned with the lead single ‘RAYZ’, lifted from their forthcoming third album, ‘Waver’ which is set to drop January 25, 2019.
RAYZ is a wonderful psych pop mixture of popping synth sounds, jangly guitars, and electronic drum beats. When speaking about the new single Royal Canoe had this to say:
“’RAYZ’ is a song about feeling a dark cloud hovering above and needing to reach up to see past it. You can’t help but desperately clamor for the ladder, but what are you leaving behind? There are so many forces pulling you this way and that: Be more successful, always say the right thing, get fit, make goals, achieve them flawlessly, be better in every possible way. But the higher you reach, the harder it is to stay grounded to yourself and those around you. In the chaos, all you want is some clarity.”
