"Salt of the earth acoustic rock, energetic rhythms and grand orchestral arrangements." That's how Pitchfork summarised the debut album from The RAA back in 2009.
Since then they've become one of the hardest touring bands around, picking up awards nominations from Juno and Polaris in their native Canada, as well as critical acclaim worldwide from the likes of The New York Times, NPR, and Rolling Stone.
Consequence of Sound described last album, 2014's Mended With Gold, as "eerie, stunning folk", and they come to Manchester for a show at Gullivers on January 23rd. Prepare to be stunned.
