The singer and his brother are from the States (Texas, I believe), but the band is based in Montreal and Win Butler's wife, also one of the female singers, is French Canadian.
I don't know if they are popular in the rest of Canada, but I can tell you that they are very popular in the province of Quebec, especially in Montreal where I live.
And Yes, you can hear their music on the radio.
