Canto- "Say It Out LOUD" Dark Surf Psych Rock contains Emotional Magic

Say It Out Loud- those words conjure up many things steeped in emotional magic. Like the mere saying of something like "I love you" or "I will drive your sister to San Francisco" will make it set in stone, will make your intentions so real that if you are not telling the truth dire things can happen. It also makes me think of horror movies when the utterance of something will bring dark consequences. And, now it makes me think of Canto, three brothers out of Pasadena, California who are in sync when it come to their potent dark surf / psych rock. Say It Out Loud is from their latest EP release called Limbs.

Seamus (lead vocals/ guitar), David (drums) and Aidan (bass) have been making music together for years. Limbs has different flavors but they all possess pearly guitar, lushs bass runs and evocative vocals. Sad Dreams is appropriately dream with the guitar lines floating so cooly, Violence is so jaggedly sharp and edgy, I'll Never Know is sultry in it's rock persona and Say It Out Loud is, well, you decide for yourself. Look for Canto on tour this month and you can learn more about them at Cantoband.com.
