"Canopies flirt with synth-pop and psychedelics, creating ear-catching and intricate warbled soundscapes. “Choose Yer Own Adventure” is from the Milwaukee group’s upcoming debut album, Maximize Your Faith, and like the classic book genre from which the song gets its name, the band has their eye firmly rooted on the past. The song pinwheels around a rising guitar line, expanding and contracting in a wave-like motion." - James Rettig, Stereogum

"Milwaukee electro-psych-pop quintet Canopies have a lot of synthesizers and a lot of patience...The payoff to their slow-moving approach is apparent on the intricately layered instrumentation on “The Plunderers and the Pillagers,” which you can spend multiple listens peeling apart to find the nifty little flourishes woven into the mix. Or you could just sit back and enjoy the song’s expansive hooks and crackling energy, which make it an excellent choice for starting off your weekend with a synth-heavy bang." - Entertainment Weekly

"The release is preceded by the single “The Plunderers and the Pillagers”, a fantastic effort that sounded wonderful when I heard the unmastered versions...The chorus – “you really got me now” followed by chime-y synth blasts – is a fantastic hook, the type Canopies have already proven themselves to be master manufacturers of." - Mike Mineo, Obscure Sound

"Their sound pulsates with drum beats layered amidst sparkling cosmic synths along with animated guitar playing. [“The Plunderers and the Pillagers”] is introspective and therapeutic almost, with an arsenal of vintage synths to help launch their melodic voyage of sound." - The Girl at the Rock Rock

"Canopies bring swirling, psychdelic ambiance, synths, and modulated vocals to to the forefront of “Choose Yer Own Adventure,” their latest single from their upcoming debut album, Maximize Your Faith. It’s a tremendously catch track, with subtle hints of Revolvers-era Beatles peppered throughout, and it seems to demand you close your eye sway." - Alt Citizen

"If you’re a fan of Tame Impala, then I think you’ll find this wonderfully layered track from Canopies to be of your liking. I recommend tossing on some headphones before you hit play." - Side One Track One
