Check out this video of electro-pop band Shiny Toy Guns, which features Shawnee natives Jeremy Dawson and Chad Petree, performing “If I Lost You” Wednesday night on “Last Call with Carson Daly.”
The song is from the band’s 2012 album “III,” which was No. 10 on my list of 2012′s top 10 albums with Oklahoma ties. Here’s what I had to say about it:
The highly anticipated return of vocalist Carah Faye Charnow , whose crystalline pipes helped propel the Shinys to a 2007 Best Electronic/Dance Album Grammy nomination for “We Are Pilots,” turned out to be more than just a reunion. It was a full-blown revitalization for the electro-pop band, which bassist/synth player Jeremy Dawson and singer/guitarist Chad Petree, who hail from Shawnee, founded back in 2001. The rhythms on “III” smoothly shift from dreamy to driving and back again, and It’s a testament to the album’s overall strength that I wind up with a new favorite track every time I listen to it.
