It’s only been a week since experimental indie rock group Royal Canoe dropped their sensational sophomore Something Got Lost Between Here and the Orbit, and the Winnipeg crew are continuing their buzz with the release of their animated new music video for “Bicycle”.

Looking back to the days of puppy-love and teasing in the schoolyard, “Bicycle” combines the youthful lyrics with an irresistible bounce from the quirky musicality of the band. Off-centered rhythms, mixed melodies, and vibrant vocals swing together, yet intentionally out of sync for a dynamic tune. Matching the song’s theme, the new music video playfully warps between images for a field-trippy experience.

Enjoy the colourful new music video below, and head to their website to order your copy of Something Got Lost Between Here and the Orbit. You can read our review of it in a recent edition of In No Particular Order, and catch the band on tour this fall (dates below).
