Boards of Canada are a Scottish electronic music duo consisting of brothers Michael Sandison and Marcus Eoin, formed initially as a group in 1986 before becoming a duo in the 1990s. Signing first to Skam followed by Warp Records in the 1990s, the duo subsequently received recognition following the release of their debut album Music Has the Right to Children on Warp in 1998. They followed with the critically acclaimed albums Geogaddi (2002), The Campfire Headphase (2005) and Tomorrow's Harvest (2013), but have remained reclusive and continue to rarely appear live.

The duo's music, largely influenced by psychedelic music and electronic music of the 1970s and 1980s, incorporates vintage synthesizer tones, samples from outdated media, analog equipment, sound collages, hip hop-inspired beats and drones; it has been described by critics as exploring themes related to nostalgia, as well as childhood memory, science, environmental concerns and esoteric subjects. In 2012, Fact summarized them as "one of the best-known and best-loved electronic acts of the last two decades."
