any opinons on these guys?
new mercury signings innit.
is that they is wicked life changing stuffs
I'm fearing the worst...
The most recent being on Wednesday night.
And they are really good, particularly live. However, I would warn those of a nervous disposition that they can on occasion sound like an emo version of Aha.
I like them a lot, but I wouldn't think that there will be a lot of love from the usual DISers.
One has just had ears attached for the first time in one's life, hearing Shiny Toy Guns would be a pleasant and, at times, uplifting, experience for the duration of the song. One would then use one's ears to find other music in a similar style and realise that Shiny Toy Guns are a useful introduction to pop music that utilises wall-of-sound synths and "heartfelt" vocals. One would find the Pet Shop Boys.
Like all music that reiterates what has gone before without addition, to be new and exciting is possible only if the songs are good and noticeable. At first hearing Shiny Toy Guns' songs are pleasant and structured according to the rules but are not memorable.
You remind me of those execu-speak people who just say alot of words which may, or may not, make any sense.
You do not have my ears.
is it cos i'm taking the piss out of you?
just 'toy guns'? - not the same?
