Cantoo’s debut, self-titled album released earlier this year is an amazing throwback to 60’s harmonies (similar to The Zombies, Simon & Garfunkle, etc.) mixed in with a twist of dark and foreboding synth.
The band features singer Aaron Parker (not the country singer), his wife Giselle Parker, Tim Batke and Brock Tyler. Both Aaron and Giselle Parker have amazing voices which create an eerie male/female harmony that suits the albums theme that “love is a really messed up thing” (see Aaron Parker’s interview with blogger of The Low Level Hum). The instrumental component of the bad is great as well, which gives the album the whole package! Harmonies, great synth and guitar, and painful ennui about love. Who could ask for more?
Go ahead, check them out.
