Fujiya & Miyagi Release Second Single, “YOYO”

With the dawning of Ventriloquizzing coming closing, set for a January 25th release, Fujiya & Miyagi debut the second single of the album after “Sixteen Shades of Black and Blue,” “YOYO.”

The new record promises to be chilling and addicting, as the droning of the beats match perfectly with the vocals.

Fujiya & Miyagi Release Music Video for “16 Shades of Black and Blue”

“16 Shades of Black Blue” is the newest release from alternative/electronica indie band Fujiya & Miyagi. Debuting as the first single off of upcoming album Ventriloquizzing, promises to be the most diverse of their albums so far. “We wanted to make a record that was different from anything we had done before,” says singer/guitarist David Best.

Much like other ground breaking bands like the Gorillaz, Fujiya & Miyagi use alternate personas- cleverly disguised dummies resembling themselves. With one look of the video, it is easy to see how the dummies add to the already cryptic and creepy slow pulse of the song. The whispered vocals cut in and out repeating over and over the chorus of the song as a man moves about in the shadows.
