WMSE Song of the Day (Tune In Turn Up): Canopies “Rebels”


Milwaukee’s newest release is from electro-pop trio, Canopies, whose five-song EP is on par with the likeminded sounds of Cut Copy and Toro Y Moi — perfect for summer listening and already generating lots of excited press for their first single, “Rebels” (listen, below). enthuses that Canopies “will not remain elusive for long”.  Playing together since 2009, multi-instrumentalists Nolan Treolo and John Marston joined up with drummer Craig Leren to make music loaded and hazed over with plenty of analog synths in an homage to ’80s dancefloor dreaminess. Canopies’ EP genuinely appeals to retro sounds, but also gives forth a new glimmer through its youthful energy and spirit that capably avoids accusation of simply being post-John Hughes fodder. Fans of local electro from Codebreaker, take note.
