“The pair has made an all-out dance party of a follow-up with This is Someday, a collection of heartfelt, hopeful pop anthems that will surely find their way onto every great TV and film soundtrack for the next five years.”
— CBC Music Spring Preview 2017
“Sharing the vocal duties works incredibly well for this creative duo and in the words of Aristotle it is true that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. This is Someday is well-crafted, beautifully written and highly recommended.”

The buzzing synths and aggressive electro sound of The Royal Oui’s This is Someday (File Under: Music) are a departure from the dreamy, acoustic mood of their self-titled debut which earned accolades from sources like Rolling Stone and American Songwriter. Performer described the band as “impassioned indie pop" while No Depression said, “The Royal Oui is able to make listeners feel true love.“
On tour, they have supported Great Lake Swimmers, Elliott BROOD, Chris Shiflett, Lindi Ortega, Steve Poltz, Yuna, Jacco Gardner, and many others. This is Someday is a confident, colorful follow-up, encompassing everything from the beat-heavy “Sideways” to the rousing Americana of “Wedding Dress.”
While writing and recording the album, the duo threw the old rules out the window. They decided to embrace experimentation, instead of putting ideas off for some future date. Out of this creative explosion, a theme revealed itself. Why wait? This is Someday.
