The latest from Fujiya and Miayagi is Ventriloquizzing. This album has an interesting sound to it. It has an Electro-Alternative sound (that doesn’t sound new?) that reminds me of Matthew Dear. Dark and smokey with incredibly captivating lyrics, it’s the lyrics that really sell this album. You feel the “ghost” of Bryan Ferry here. While lead singer David Best isn’t exactly crooning, he does has a sultry smoothness to his style and the Electro-Alt sound gives it an unworldy vibe. While this new Alternative influenced sound may turn away some fans, as a new comer to this band, the split between to two genre styles along with Best’s vocals hooked me right in and I enjoyed the whole album. Worth exploring.
