Fujiya & Miyagi stroll cooly into their sixteenth year of existence as a musical duo with a slick new EP. On ‘Serotonin Rushes’, the vocal scarcely rises above the level of a whisper, even as the underslung synth-pop grows to the level of ecstatic. Sleek club players these guys. 12” on Impossible Objects Of Desire.

4-Track 12" EP on Impossible Objects Of Desire.
I’ve just found out that Brightonians Fujiya & Miyagi’s great album ‘Transparent Things’ came out a whole ten years ago… Well blow me down! I did enjoy that one. Admittedly I’ve heard little of them since, but gone (for now) are the Krautrock drums and in with spacey synths if brand-spankin’ new EP1 is an indicator.
‘Serotonin Rushes’ opens the record with its disco beat and electronics owing rather a lot to Giorgio Moroder. The vocals are consistently at that barely-audible whisper. The cosmic electro-pop becomes more tender on the Junior-Boysish ‘To The Last Beat of my Heart’. ‘Freudian Slips’ bounces poppily and merrily along on a rubbery bass. The melodically pretty instrumental ‘Magnesium Flares’ closes the EP. So, onto EP2!
