Royal Canoe rework Efterklang’s ‘Between The Walls’

Efterklang - Between The Walls (Royal Canoe remix)

We’ve long been fans of Canadian sextet Royal Canoe. And we’ve long been fans of Danish trio Efterklang. The two bands crossed paths this last summer whilst playing in some of the same European festivals and Royal Canoe offered to rework one of Efterklang’s songs. The result is a dazzling and inspired remix of ‘Between The Walls’. The original track is featured on Efterklang’s fourth album Piramida, released last year.
In other related news, Royal Canoe are on the final leg of their European tour, which wraps in Manchester this Saturday November 16th. Go to see them live if you can, you’re in for one hell of a treat!
Now here’s the remix of ‘Between The Walls’.

Mixtape #41

We've fallen for Winnipeg's six-piece ensemble Royal Canoe and their unique rhythm, joyful tunes and energetic live performance a long time ago. So we've asked them to soundtrack the month of August for us, and befittingly, they came up with a summery feast. Swooping from Jurassic 5 to Al Green, through 16 tracks filled with nothing but the best genre hopping sounds, this mixtape will get you grooving in the sunshine.
