Everything Shook are supporting the magical Fujiya & Miyagi!

Nov 13th:
FUJIYA & MIYAGI at Hangar
Early gig, doors 7.30pm

“One of the things we are good at is making people dance, and, really,
there’s no greater reason to make music than the ability to have a physical reaction on someone.” Best.

The Brighton group return to Dublin after 3 years to play tracks from their five acclaimed albums, including their 2014 release Artificial Sweeteners.

Few have offered such a bitter sweet taste of pop through their career as Fujiya & Miyagi; underneath the sticky wrappers that have packaged their sugary synth lines and rich hooks since the turn of the Millennium, there’s always been a grittier after taste – be it manifest through their love of pounding 70’s krautrock, or in the seen-it-all weariness of their lyrics.
Best’s use of words for sound-quality over meaning and repetition of phrase to deepen meaning elsewhere is inspired by Serge Gainsbourg and Iggy Pop. “Both knew how to give the seemingly trivial or shallow depth,” he explains, “by cutting away the flab you can make what you produce less self-indulgent.” That’s something you couldn’t have ever accused Fujiya & Miyagi of across a 14-year career.
