North of Canada’s songs are off-kilter with a discernible melody, influenced by Brit pop and the likes of Sonic Youth, Graham Coxon, Supergrass, Johnny Headband, Built to Spill and the Cribs. They employ effects-driven guitar and interval octave vocals coupled with driving bass and percussion. The lyrics are thematically inspired by trauma and loss, the perils of over-socialization, humility, and the lies and ruses that friends and lovers play on each other. They bring a sense of metaphysical immediacy to their live shows that leaves a lasting impression. North of Canada released a 7 song EP entitled "Every Seahorse Could Be Different" on April 25, 2012.
Formerly sponsored by Luksusova, the band went to rehab and are now sponsored by Bushmills.
