Boats are a bouncy indie rock band from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, fronted by the freakishly high-pitched voice of guitarist Mat Klachefsky. He formed the group with bassist Louis Lévesque-Côté, drummer Luke Bergen, multi-instrumentalist Mark Schram, and keyboardist/trumpeter Ashley Roch. In 2007, the five-piece recorded Intercontinental Champion, a successful debut that attracted the attention of Kill Rock Stars, who released the band's full-length follow-up Cannonballs, Cannonballs in 2011. The equally quirky and over-the-top A Fairway Full of Miners materialized in early 2013. ~ Jason Lymangrover, Rovi
