Los Angeles rock band, CANTO, have now released their brand new EP titled Ride Away. The EP is available as a free download via the band’s officialFacebook page.

The EP includes “Dirty Water,” Canto’s interpretation of the 1966 garage band classic by another California rock band, The Standells. Fans can check out the official video now.
The band is a family affair consisting of three brothers, Seamus Blackwell (Vocals, Guitar), Aidan Blackwell (Bass), and David Blackwell (Drums) who have been heavily involved in music all their lives. Lead singer, Seamus says “I was surrounded by musicians growing up, because of it, I wanted to play any instrument I could get my hands on.” That is apparent right down to the name of the band, which is the Latin word for “to sing,” the brothers showcase their love for the classics with influences from rock music of the 1960s and 70s combined with the energy of a mature and operatic alt-rock sound.
