Cantoy – MissMatch!? Review

Cantoy is another band that I found by pure chance. Other than the description of punk rock, I thought it would be another good example of how Japanese punk remains close to the original idea. But after listening through the tracks, I found a greater mix of absolute amazing arrangements of music combining punk, rock, metal, and of all things: Jpop.

The band create a perfect combination of all the genres into really addictive songs and it is surprising how well everything works. The release is an eight song EP, but most of the songs all have the ability to catch the ear. I can see a bright future for the band, especially if they’re able to keep producing this type of music.

Don’t be fulled by the first track, listen to the whole thing.
