"The completely unknown Canopies will not remain elusive for long. That much is easy to predict when listening to “Rebels”, a track that is bound to explode in the music blogosphere." -Obscure Sound "Milwaukee’s Canopies recently came out of nowhere with a terrific self-titled debut EP, an album clearly indebted to a proto-new wave past full of murky ’80s dance clubs, but still shot through with a spirit of post-millennial dance parties. It’s a thrilling introduction to a wholly unexpected new talent, and a clear contender for Milwaukee album of the year." - A.V. Club Milwaukee "Sounds from '80s synth sit beside today's psych-pop revivals, while mid-'90s dream-pop accents take wing to ground the music with strong melodies, forceful beats and intricate execution." - Shepherd Express
