TRACK: Fujiya & Miyagi – ‘Feeling The Effects (Of Saturday Night)’

Fujiya & Miyagi

BRIGHTON’S cool groovers Fujiya & Miyagi used what we can now refer to as period of history known as Lockdown One wisely, and kept on creating.

They dug back into the archives, blowing the dust from abandoned hard drives and found a fragment of an idea dating all the way back to 2000.

Socially distanced as they were, the genre-spanning quartet set about working on the track separately, passing the files back and forth. The song soon developed into a vehicle for examining past triumphs and defeats, and the conflicting feelings such thoughts provoke … all the things that cloud your mind as you crawl into consciousness feeling the effects of Saturday night; and hell, with the world as it, missing the glory of that night before, too.

The band describe the track – a cool groove very much in that halcyon groove with vocals thang they’ve perfected down the years, on the one hand imbued with the spirit of the best of that New Order/Hot Chip indie vocal feel, cool, detached, and yet also looking out to an idealised, super-cosmic future dancefloor – as “A hangover from youth played out over a four to the floor, both a hymn to going out whilst secretly pleased you stayed in.

“The lyrics document the passing of time and the wear and tear that comes with it.

“The group look forward to having more victories and failures, with more joy and more hangovers in the not so near future.”

Hey, we’ve got it embedded right here from Soundcloud: kick off those dancing shoes, maybe be ready to slip em on again.
