Shiny Toy Guns

Another band who are enamored with the 80s! The synthesizers used by Shiny Toy Guns will remind you (those of you old enough to remember) of Human League or Duran Duran. It is really kitschy and all but still the band has managed to put a modern twist on the music. There are definitely some elements of emo in their sound. Another interesting facet of the band is that they have two lead singers (one male one female) who play off each other vocally. This is the third version of the same album that the band has recorded and so the production values are expectedly quite slick on it. Sometimes it almost sounds too perfect, if you know what I mean. The way the music sounds is truly focused on more than its content.
