INTERVIEW: Shiny Toy Guns (2013)

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.   Signed to a new label, Five Seven Music, they released the album III late last year, previewed by two uniquely different songs – “Waiting Alone” and “Fading Listening.”  Moving away from the rock feel of their second album Season of Poison, III is more of a electronic-leaning album which has been embraced by their fans.  I spoke to Carah Faye and Jeremy Dawson when they stopped in Nashville on their recent Tour Odyssey with Dirty Heads.

RS: How does it feel to be touring as a whole group again?
Jeremy: Great, we are a band and that’s normally how we tour, what do you mean?

RS: I mean with the original lineup all together.
Carah Faye: It’s awesome
Jeremy: It’s the only way to go.

RS: Carah, is there anything weird about singing the songs that Sisely originally sang?
Carah Faye: No not at all, I just make them my own.

SONG OF THE DAY: Fedde Le Grand – “Rockin’ and Rollin'”

A festival monster with classic DNA… Energetic Dutchman Fedde Le Grand continues his exploration of rock and Daft Punk-ish influences from “Raw,” with the accurately titled “Rockin’ N Rollin’.” Starting off with a vibe not dissimilar to Freemasons recent “Bring It Back,” vocal samples crescendo into a full-on rock-edged shuffling beat. It’s intense, aggressive-yet-still-accessible, almost like dBerrie’s “Zenith” or Tristan Garner’s “Machine Gun” made for the masses. The vocals are effected to an extreme before the drop-down leads to a swirling synth line with the feel of Abba’s “Voulez-vous” pumped with testosterone. The massive staccato and stuttered build-up will drive any floor wild. Originally deployed at Ultra, the track will no doubt be a festival favorite all summer. The only question is which rapper will be called on for the topline, I imagine someone like Busta Rhymes would have the perfect flow.
