    I love the new song. I heard it for the first time yesterday & it immediately grabbed my attention. I always feel for any vocalist who “replaces” the prior vocalist in a popular band. I don’t view you as a replacement at all…wouldn’t dream of comparing/judging against another, that’s just unfair to both of you. I think that Carah did a fabulous job & I wish her the best. That being said, I think that you’ll make your OWN history with this band. I love what I’m hearing so far & it sounds like you’re doing a fabulous job as well. I look forward to hearing more of you & I wish you & Carah the best with your careers. Hoping to catch the show in Fresno! ;)

    I find Fabs comments interesting. STG was a band before Carah was in the band, she was a replacement for another girl. I do LOVE Carahs voice & will miss her but sisely has some interesting chops on her. Can’t wait to hear what she does.

    I’m quite disappointed Carah left (or had to leave, whatever), but I love Sisely, so this will be great. Hopefully things will work out for Carah and her new band so I can listen to BOTH. Ricochet! sounds awesome, I can’t wait for the new album.

    I don’t know who you are, but I feel betrayed because this was not publicized and Shiny Toy Guns with Carah is what made me love them…The band was original. I wonder how long it will be before this band sells out to become more pop….as usual with every kind of record label…they take original one-of-a-kind bands that are good to begin with and sell out to become more pop sensational..it’s pathetic really.

    I’m gutted that Carah left, her voice was great, but sisely doesn’t sound too bad so i’m looking forward to their new stuff.

    This sucks, And my penis will never be the same now that Carah left.

    “Yo dude” , you know that Carah is a lesbian, right?

    And congrats Sisely.

    Never explained WHY Carah left. STG sounds totally differnt now… It will never be the same. But I guess I will probably grow to like them. Not as much as the original, but still. And what band did Carah go to?

  10. November 19, 2008 at 5:25 am

    Carah didnt go to any band…she created with friends ‘Versant’. I will be touring with them next year.

    They have a MySpace etc etc…

    Your answer doesn’t explain the important question – What happened to Carah? The other members are good but she always put on a great show.

    :::off to search for Versant:::

    i’m so upset carah left shiny toy guns. good luck to you sisely, i don’t think ill listen to you guys anymore.

    It doesn’t take a genius to look up “you Tube” and see that Sisely can’t sing live…. She can’t even maintain her voice for one full song….

    I showed my 8 year old brother two versions of “Le Disko” live and said one was good and one was shit house…. HE COULD EVEN PICK !!!!! Her voice crackles , is nasally and screechy…. It’s an insult to Carah… I didn’t even know this band til one month ago too, so im not biased…… But anyway us Aussies are bred well… we can actually hear pitch and tone… all the fat that USA whales have on their hips has not covered over the things us aussies call ears……..

    maybe the replacement (or whatever it is) is not inevitable.. but please preserve the “originality” of Shiny Toy Guns,the old one (with Carah Faye still around). I’m not too upset with Carah leaving/passing (whatever it is) but the new STG is totally different…. Hope the new STG (with Sisely) will maintain the main (original) STG and Sisely not to be too lunatic (dances/outfits)…(STG is not a rock band)
