MP3: Fujiya and Miyagi

British electronic quartet Fujiya and Miyagi have a knack for spinning synthesizers and fuzzed out guitar around your head to create dark, dancey tunes. Their new single, "Ecstatic Dancer," is no exception. The track feels like it starts off like it's already in the middle of a line or melody, giving the listener not much to grab on to. But then after a few measures, a synth comes in to set the tone of the foreboding track. The beat drops in a gloomy mess, but one that makes you want to follow singer David Best's urges to "hit the dance floor." He may not sound ecstatic, but he knows how to groove.

Fujiya and Miyagi are hitting the road in support of their latest release, Ventriloquizzing, which was inspired by the creepy dolls and the people with arms up their backsides. Check out "Ecstatic Dancer" below, and also be sure to find Fujiya and Miyagi at a show near you.
