When the origins of your band's name derives from a character in the film Karate Kid, you're alright in my book. Add some sugary synths and catchy hooks, and you've won me over.
Brighton-based trio Fujiya & Miyagi have done all thee above, and on top of that, have added a sweet little remix by Umberto. The remix of "Little Stabs At Happiness" is guided with hard synths, and a heavy dance-floor beat that will drive you into a euphoric head-bob.
"Little Stabs At Happiness" comes from Fujiya & Miyagi's album called Artificial Sweeteners via Yep Roc Records. Do yourself a favor and check out the original tune here. Also, the band is on a west coast tour - see the dates below:
