Fujiya & Miyagi @ Roisin Dubh, Galway | 30th November | Review

Slow Place Like Home

This was my second time seeing Slow Place Like Home live at the Roisin. I have to admit, I was more impressed by them this time around, and I feel their set matched the “indie x electronic” sentiment behind the main act. Although the venue remained relatively subdued during the support act, the vibe for an electronic dance set was definitely established.

The band played older tunes such as “Ankle Injuries” from their earlier album “Transparent Things” near the beginning of their set, and it was evident from the beginning that their use of bass and synth captured the attention of the audience.

The band’s set developed to feature multiple songs off of their new eponymous album. Most popular appeared to be “Serotonin Rushes” which encouraged the small but attentive audience to reach the dance-floor.

The British band gave off an approachable vibe, taking requests from the audience and being attentive to each others’ musical flare.

I would highly recommend their most recent album for an energetic and unique buzz, coupled with thoughtful bass.
