Miyazaki - "Opportunist" / "Glory"

DC synth-pop quartet Miyazaki take their name from legendary Japanese animator and director Hayao Miyazaki—the creative engine behind films like My Neighbor Totoro and Spirited Away. While there's no reference to a giant rabbit or freaky pig people on the band's debut full-length Color of Glass, there's certainly a transportive, far-away and fantastical feel to the their beat-driven and heavily melodic dance numbers, which playfully sprinkle Factory Records influences and gloomy Ian Curtis recalling vocal takes alongside bubbling synth riffs. Below, dig into the foggy drone of "Glory" and the pulsating "Opportunist," where deep-voiced frontman Eduardo Rodela hands over lead vocal duties to his girlfriend Marisa Grotte, whose bright beaming tone provides the perfect change of pace throughout Color of Glass.

Snag the 11-track album from Bandcamp.
