Toronto based indie-rock supergroup, Mounties – consisting of celebrated singer-songwriter Hawksley Workman, Hot Hot Heat and Fur Trade frontman Steve Bays, and Limblifter and Age Of Electric’s Ryan Dhale – have released a music video for “Canoe Song”, the lead single off their highly-anticipated upcoming – and untitled – album.
“Canoe Song” serves as an exciting introduction for what is to come from Mounties seeing as their 2014 debut record, Thrash Rock Legacy, was met with such praise from fans, the media, and the overall industry alike. “Canoe Song” is as quirky as it can get with a funky backbeat, a rhythmic hook, slightly psychedelic vocals. Overall, the tone of the song is perfectly complemented by the stop-motion animation direction of the music video –directed and animated by Bill Maylone.
While there is no word on when fans can expect their forthcoming album, “Canoe Song” will certainly stoke the excitement of fans who have been patiently awaiting Mounties return.
I’m Gerrod, a Toronto based writer and musician. As soon as I started drumming, music became one of my greatest passions. Since then, I have also picked up the guitar, bass, and a hint of the piano. I am currently studying music and education at York University, and drum in a local hard rock band, One In The Chamber. This puts me right in the heart of Toronto’s growing music scene.
