Fujiya & Miyagi are a three piece from Brighton on the cusp of setting their new album ‘Transparent Things’ on the world. They cite Serge Gainsbourg as a major influence. Funny that as OMR are a French duo that sport a Kate Radley like being in Virginie Krupa. OMR’s smouldering sound did not exactly set the world on fire when their sophomore album was released last year. Pity that because songs like ‘So and So’ and ‘Superheroes Crash’ deserve a public airing. For the moment the clever money seems to be on Fujiya & Miyagi (if that name is easily pronounceable, there’s a hint in the song). ‘Ankle Injuries’ is unlikely to become a terrace favourite yet the theme could be enough to have ‘Superheroes Crash’ at a vital part of the season. Just another candidate in the endless search for that perfect moment of segueness a la ‘An Cat Dubh’ and ‘Into the Heart’ from U2’s ‘Boy’ album. KD
