SCANDAL; Excite Music「Departure」Interview Part 2

It might be a given but compared to the scenery drawn for「SAKURA Goodbye」5 years ago, this feel different.

  • TOMOMI: Most certainly, it’s different from sakura flowers that bloom in the schoolyard.

  • RINA: On the topic of becoming adults, it’s probably the first time I’ve thought of myself like that. It’s not like I’ll think of「Oh I’d changed」when I see my clothing or hair style or make-up, but the real meaning of feeling「I’d changed」. I feel like I’ve became calm. This, I think couldn’t be presented 1 year back. I’m extremely happy that since 5 years ago then, this could come out. Also, since we’re a band from Japan, the four seasons are important and I think it’s a must to continue singing Spring songs. As a Japanese you see.

You’ve had activities overseas since early before, so you’ll have some new thoughts about this right.

  • RINA: Regarding about SCANDAL, I’ve always thought we had a Japanese style to us. Starting from uniforms, we grew up viewing the important of having black hair. We’ll go overseas each year, and each year we’ll make sure to give off the good, actual feelings of Japan. That’s why I think I really love Japan, and that it’s a great country. Every member is a delicate, unique and expressive individual. Although I look up and follow the New York style, I think Japan is cool.

Just now the words “Japanese melody” came out but it’s also a point that Kameda Seiji-san, who was the sound producer this time round, that’d brought out this sort of SCANDAL whom holds the Japanese feel right.

  • HARUNA: It’s a first for us to work with Kameda Seiji-san this time.

  • TOMOMI: Kameda-san, to say so, has such a split personality. When he plays the bass himself he’s like on an invasive mode, but when he’s being the producer, he’ll be writing songs of all sorts of genres. I think he’s the sort that goes with whatever good stuff gives his ears a good sort of familiarity, and personally, I’ll also become interested.

  • MAMI: Firstly, for this time’s recording, we recorded with the feel of us 4 being at a live, and from there we corrected the bass and added things. We’re people that view the band feel as something of great important.

  • TOMOMI: The first things we talked about were our sound and how we wished for it to be presented during lives. However, we had some of Kameda-san’s style inside our CD and we also had the strings thrown in. I was really touched hearing the sound of the strings at close. I think the orgel at the start too was something new that we haven’t had up till now.
