SONG OF THE DAY: Shiny Toy Guns – “Waiting Alone”
Shiny Toy Guns are back. Not just back with new music, but back to their starting lineup with original singer Carah Faye Charnow who rejoins the group. “Waiting Alone,” the first taste of their forthcoming album III, is quite exceptional, it blends the electronic rock sound of their first singles with a taste of modern dance pop and electro. Thankfully there are no dub step breakdowns, with rather slight elements of classic 4AD/Nettwerk accenting the track instead. Perfect for radio as it is now, an additional aggressive electro mix would be great for the clubs. As wonderful as it is for Carah to be back, wouldn’t it be amazing if both she and Sisely Treasure shared the lead vocals, like a modern day Abba? Here’s hoping that Sisely will reunite with Kaz Gamble and give us a modern take on the much-loved Cooler Kids.
