Shiny Toy Guns at Highline Ballroom last night by herche

It was past 11pm by the time the kids of Shiny Toy Guns took the stage at what’s shaping up to be one of NYC’s hottest new music venue’s last night. Well worth the wait, STG go full throttle from load in to load out, creating an energy so strident that most didn’t hear the fire alarms going off all throughout their encore.

Shiny Toy Guns

Their set was just over an hour, which I felt completely appropriate considering they have only released one album. They hit all the key songs off of “We Are Pilots” including Chemistry of a Car Crash, first single Le Disko, Starts with One, and of course closed out the show with crowd favorite and break out track You Are The One. To splice up their set they threw in a little known track from their demo called Rocketship and even covered a little Depeche Mode famously.

The Band member’s raw musical talent is showcased by their constant switch offs: vocals, to guitars, to keyboards and back around. Female lead vocalist Carah Faye is a vision on the keyboards, but her undisputed trademark in the band is her voice which holds a perfect pitch while slicing through its electronic surroundings.

If you hear Shiny Toy Guns are playing at your local music venue, go buy a ticket. Each member on their own is a remarkable talent-it’s pure genius when they join together.

Emily

Emily King was great at the Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival.  She went on around 3:30 and played until a little after 4 PM, it couldn’t have been a nicer day and she played to a good size crowd.

She absolutely KILLED “Business Man”, which was played acoustically and ended with her upcoming single “Walking In My Shoes” (which we have heard features Lupe).

She is definitely an up and comer to watch.
