The Kid Should See This

Royal Canoe – Bathtubs

The kiddos really enjoyed this instrument and effect-filled video for Royal Canoe‘s Bathtubs, directed by Nathan Boey, about the band’s perfectly imperfect rehearsal space in an apartment building in Winnipeg, Canada.

The song is about how difficult it was to get instruments and equipment through a crowded hallway when the band was on their way to gigs. — Apartment bathtubs had been moved to the hallway by the building’s owner as a step in renovations. — But the song is also about making creativity happen despite difficult situations.

From Royal Canoe guitarist Bucky Driedger in Uniter.ca: “There is a sense where you can get slogged down, but there’s still some reason why we keep coming to this [practice space] and keep wanting to write the best songs that we can even though there’s a lot of things in the way.”

There are more music videos and other great songs in the archives.
