Fujiya & Miyagi: an explosion of sounds

On a quiet sunday evening of the long weekend, we decided to discover a brand new venue in Montreal named La Vitriola. Brighton’s own Fujiya & Miyagi were performing to promote their latest album “Artificial Sweeteners”

Opening act was Zorch, coming directly from Texas with a mix of psychedelia, pop and electro. Lots of noise and huge presence on the small stage for the duet and a beautiful cover of Good Morning Good Morning from the Beatles totally deconstructed but oh sooo original.

Fujiya and Miyagi took the stage later on, opening with their latest album title track. The band played mostly tracks from their latest record but added to their setlist a couple of old songs as Knickerbocker and Uh! from 2008’s Lightbulbs.The crowd was quiet at the beginning but from songs to songs the ambiance evolved. Despite the small crowd,we felt the grooves and the party vibes of Brighton beach. Rave electronic beats, raw tight voice reminiscing of Massive Attack’s Robert Del Naja, Fujiya And Miyagi delivered a set full of surprises…
