2016 Top 10 #1 – Fujiya & Miyagi

Our favourite band this year is one that haven’t released a whole album, but have put out two thirds of one. Fujiya and Miyagi have however put out EP1 and EP2, with a promise of EP3 in the new year, with the tracks from the three releases coming out on a self titled album. When we interviewed David Best earlier this year, he spoke about Feeling really good about the band, and listening to the EPs it’s easy to hear why –  from the funky Seratonin Rushes through to the arpeggiated electro of Extended Dance Mix, the band have never sounded better. But it’s not just musically that they’re on top form. The lyrics of Extended Dance Mix are as self deprecating and witty as anything they’ve put out, and To The Last Beat of My Heart rhymed Jupiter with Stupider which is surely equal to Hal David rhyming “pneumonia” with “phone yer”. We can’t wait to hear EP3.
