2022’s Slight Variations will be released on September 30th via Fujiya & Miyagi’s own Impossible Objects Of Desire label, as distributed by the North Carolina based REDEYE worldwide. One of the tracks featured on Slight Variations is “New Body Language,” which The Hype Magazine is proud to be premiering the video of. Per Fujiya & Miyagi’s David Best to The Hype via email: “‘New Body Language’ is probably the most instant and accessible song on the record. We took a lot of our current listening habits and put them in a blender till it turned out like us. The video Bob Brown and I made plays with the idea of perception. How we appear to ourselves is generally not how we are perceived by others.”
