Who says you need a massive budget and a slew of special effects designers to make a visually imaginative music video? Winnipeg psych-pop group Royal Canoe are premiering their new music video, "Hold On To The Metal," and it's a whirlwind of underwater revelries and pitch-perfect freak folk sensibilities. If you were to marry the harmonies and psychedelic pop of Animal Collective (which is simply to say the Beach Boys filtered through swirls of guitar and effect pedals) with the frenzied vocal phrasing of Modest Mouse and threw in the falsettos of the Temper Trap for good measure, you can imagine Royal Canoe's sound. "Hold Onto the Metal" is a promising distillation of the various aspects of Royal Canoe's sound, and with the accompanying whimsical video, they take you on a magical ride to the bottom of the sea.
