Shiny Toy Guns reminds me of a few different music influences all rolled into one. First off, Chad Petree’s vocals sound a helluva lot like Damon Albarn’s of Gorillaz and Blur. A similar inflection in their voices, which seemed like a British thing but Chad’s from Oklahoma.
Other influences include Last Lynx and their ‘Killing Switch‘ song. It’s that male // female duet against a lighthearted, upbeat beat that lump the two songs together. It also reminds me of Shallow Hal’s club montage with that 90’s perception of what 70’s disco sounded like — but I’m not even gonna try to attempt to convince or prove it to you.
