RINA @ 『Sisterhood』 Movie Talk Event - Thu Apr 04, 2019 7:30 pm

Topics tagged under front-page on  - Page 2 RGPoo8f

RINA will be appearing at a talk event for the movie "Sisterhood" on April 14th.




RINA's recent tweets:

After a screening of the movie "Sisterhood" on 4/14 at Yokohama Cinemarine, I will be speaking with the director Takashi Nishihara. I had gone to see the movie privately and tweeted about how much I liked it, and the director saw it and reached out to me. I was surprised by the unexpected development, but it makes me very happy.

I would like to talk about things I felt while watching the movie, my thoughts on feminism, and my attitude towards making music. Above all, I want to talk about how I want all kinds of people to watch this movie. Those interested, please come out to it. I'll be waiting!

RINA's original tweet about the movie:

Topics tagged under front-page on  - Page 2 Aiav78l

I went to go see the long-awaited "Sisterhood" movie. It was really great. Similar to how we gave the name "her" to our label, I've been really fascinated by the increase in opportunities to think about gender once again. Look it up, and if you're interested in it, I'd like for you to go see it.

Event details:

After the screening of the movie 『Sisterhood』 currently out nationwide, drummer RINA of the all-girl band SCANDAL, Japan's leading all-girl band who boasts a huge popularity among teenage girls, will make an appearance!

A multi-faceted conversation with director Takashi Nishihara will be held relating to the thoughts of women living in the present, and how SCANDAL's private record label "her" that was established this spring led to its first release on 3/27: the double A-side single 『Masterpiece / Mabataki』.

The space is so large
That it can't be shown with just one picture
It has so much stuff
And is so, so awesome!
It made me really happy
That we had a space made
Where you can enjoy
Our precious songs in new ways
And in such a three-dimensional form

We've buried
Comments and autographs in all sort of spots
There's also a place where everyone can leave messages,
And I tried reading as many of them as I could
The thoughts conveyed through text
Made me tear up a bit
Thank you so much as always


After that, we did several
TV and radio recordingsー!

Topics tagged under front-page on  - Page 2 IxTVCAv
YTV's "-ONCHIKA-
Will air on 4/11 (Thu.) from 1:59 am〜
It was a taping that was so feverish we lost our voices haha
We'll have the other info posted on our site soon!


And then,
At night we had our anticipated
"Hohoemi Zadan-kai (Smiling Round Table Discussion)"

Many people gathered
In the cold while it drizzled!
It was so much fun haha
It felt so warm
To be able to spend some great time together✌️

A new imperial era was also announced
And I think there are plenty of people
Who will be starting something this spring, or whose environments will change.
I hope that "Masterpiece" or "Mabataki"
Can be a small switch
That'll diminish the anxiety of changing moments
And boost your hopes
We'll always be supporting you☺️

SCANDAL|The beginning of our second chapter set in our own place
Topics tagged under front-page on  - Page 2 INaJdHO




SCANDAL will be releasing their new single 「Masterpiece / Mabataki」, their first single in two years, eight months.

The first work that will be delivered from their private label "her" that was established at the end of last year is SCANDAL's first double A-side single. The song 「Masterpiece」 that they debuted live last year is a punkish number that loudly conveys their new start, and the second song 「Mabataki」 is a city pop-like love song that extols a soft atmosphere. Having two songs at opposite ends of the spectrum, the quartet will once again show their pride of being Japan's leading all-girl band.

This Music Natalie cover story features close coverage of a day in the life of SCANDAL. We snuck in to the studio they visit every week, and we conducted an interview with SCANDAL after they finished a meeting at a cafe. We had the quartet, who cannot hide their excitement about the activities that'll start in earnest from here on out in a new environment, talk about the process leading up to the launch of 「her」 and the thoughts they put into it, as well as the production of their latest work.

A day in the life of SCANDAL

Once a week, on the same day of the week, at the same time, the four members of SCANDAL always go to the studio. HARUNA picks everyone up in her car and head to the studio. The studio is always reserved for two hours, and during that time they have sessions, bring in new song ideas, and/or place their instruments. They spend those two hours talking away and doing whatever they like.

Up until a few years ago, SCANDAL would often go to the studio for live show rehearsals before a tour. At some point they remembered "goofing around in the studio," and it is now incorporated as one of their weekly plans.

They keep in touch and decide a few days before what they'll be doing in the studio. On this day they had a session with songs from popular bands who have appeared at the same festivals as them. SCANDAL says this about this studio work: "It feels like our groove is enhanced by meeting once a week at the same exact time every week and having conversations in a space with just the four of us." They can share new ideas while they're fresh, and it seems like it keeps the band healthy.

When time's up, they put away their instruments and jump back in to HARUNA's car. When they arrive at a favorite cafe of theirs after being driven by HARUNA, they catch up with each other and ask, "What did you yesterday?" After that, HARUNA drives each of them back home. SCANDAL―who celebrated their tenth anniversary with its original members, and who celebrated the tenth anniversary of their major label debut―spends two hours a week as just the four of them.

SCANDAL's interview


_____________________________________________________________

By establishing "her," it seemed like "The four of us can still do this"

_____________________________________________________________

──SCANDAL celebrated its 10th anniversary as a band two years ago in 2017 [Note: That anniversary was actually in 2016, though...], and celebrated its 10th anniversary being a major label band last year in 2018.

Topics tagged under front-page on  - Page 2 9PZwigg

HARUNA: The two years of "10 year anniversaries" coming in succession marked a new chapter for us―rather, it was a huge thing for us to feel that we reached one big milestone. Because that was there, I think it led to the establishment of our new private record label 「her」.


──You debuted the song 「Masterpiece」, one of the songs on the new release, early during your 「SCANDAL TOUR 2018 "Kanshasai"」 held last November. Not only were you immersed in your strong emotions towards your 10th anniversary, you were already moving towards the future.

RINA: That's right. Last year we took a break from appearing at festivals and only had a few chances to be out in the spotlight. That might be why it made us think, "What are we doing?" While we were getting things ready for 「her」 behind the scenes, we had been making songs the entire time. It was a year the four of us got together and did a lot of inner activities.


──Why did you originally decide to launch a private label at this time?

MAMI: 「HONEY」, the album we released last year, gave us confidence that we made something really good, and since we reached the chapter of [being a major label band for] ten years, we all thought, "So what should we do now?" The four of us shared the same feelings of simply wanting to be more excited and to do something new at that time. At first it was a vague thought we had, but as we entered the studio once a week and got together to hold meetings, I think around last summer......or so, the idea of establishing a private label came up naturally. If that was to happen, it was possible our freedom would greatly increase and we would be able to do something new again, so we started to move specifically from there.

TOMOMI: It's because a "We want to update ourselves" mood had always been flowing through the band. That's why, when we talked about that, all of us had the same motivation to be able to get there.


──You announced the establishment of 「her」 during last year's Christmas live show on 12/24. It's been about three months since then; is there anything that establishing your label has brought to the band?

RINA: We went with the word 「her」 so that you could automatically tell it's a label launched personally by an all-girl band, and it feels like that made us see big themes for our future again. Rock bands generally have a cool; sharp; strong image to them, but it's possible to also express sweetness and softness as women in a band. Since that's a strength and delight of being an all-girl band, we as SCANDAL want to focus on that.


──It feels like you've renewed your readiness as an all-girl band and have strengthened your resolve.

MAMI: Yes.

RINA: That's why we thought, "The four of us can still do this." It felt like our future as SCANDAL extended further.

Topics tagged under front-page on  - Page 2 NVwByUW

──But SCANDAL has been doing very well so far. Like, since you also have a solid style you've built up, you haven't really felt that worried about the future.

RINA: But we've always had feelings of wanting to improve. Looking back on it now, after releasing 「HONEY」 in 2018, there were times when production did not go well. We couldn't really write anything like our newest "special move," or, rather, a "strong song."

MAMI: That's right. It doesn't mean that we were in a slump since we could write songs themselves, but they all tended to feel like they were "part 2"'s of our past songs. We weren't satisfied with that.

RINA: Those songs somehow took shape because we've been a band for 10 years, but none of them broke through. It's because we could only make hazy songs that were like, "It seems like we could keep going, though" that it felt like we needed to completely change how make music. Thinking about it now, we may have hit a wall at a good timing for the band.


──On the other side of that, you were also confident that, "If we're together, we should be able to produce even better songs. We should be able to aim even higher."

MAMI: That's right. Even if they were songs we weren't satisfied with, they could certainly exceed our past songs. But, we constantly felt like we should be able to be even better.

HARUNA: Yeah. I think that's probably the confidence we've accumulated over the past 10 years.


_____________________________________________________________

「Masterpiece」 is a song that the current SCANDAL should be playing

_____________________________________________________________

──Was your new song 「Masterpiece」 born after the production of your album 「HONEY」?

MAMI: Yes. The melody itself was made about a year ago, but at that time it had a completely different arrangement from its current state. I didn't really like that arrangement, so I put away for the time being. I'm the type who, if I don't get it right the first time, basically won't want to do it anymore. Even though everyone was saying, "That song you made earlier was good, so why not try one more time?", I was stubbornly like, "No, I don't feel like it now" (laughs).

RINA: Because of that, we're a band who has zero songs stocked up (laughs).

Topics tagged under front-page on  - Page 2 842iCQJ

MAMI: Even though I should be able to stock them up, I throw them all away (laughs). But everyone, including our staff, liked this song, so I started to feel, "All right, for a change I'll try it again." Since that was when we were also all discussing 「her」, I was like, "If the band is renewed, then I too will be renewed," and got rid of my weird stubborness (laughs).

RINA: You became flexible (laughs).


──What kind of arrangement did it originally have?

MAMI: It felt formal and used strings. Other than the main focus being on the band, it was something completely different. So, we talked about arranging it once more, but since I couldn't change it myself no matter what, I entrusted it to the arranger Keita Kawaguchi-san. Kawaguchi-san has watched over the past SCANDAL as well as the current SCANDAL, so I had faith in him and asked him to do it.

RINA: When we heard the completed arrangement, we were like, "That's so cool!" and all got excited. When we order an arrangement, we tell them what timbre and configuration in lots of detail, but he really went beyond that and made the greatest arrangement.

TOMOMI: Our impression of the song also completely changed, thanks to the arrangement. I think it's become a song that the current SCANDAL should be playing. For the instrument recording, the groove was very easy to make since we had performed it several times on last year's 「Kanshasai」 tour. We made the sounds close to the atmosphere we have for our live shows. We're also doing a lot of experimenting, like making it so distorted that you don't know where the outlines are.

_____________________________________________________________

A word we can use pleasantly

_____________________________________________________________

──The lyrics for 「Masterpiece」 were written by RINA, and its content is fitting for the band's new start.

RINA: Until now, I was trying not to write songs that pumped out too much of our story. That's because I wanted us to keep being a band that you could understand and enjoy no matter when you started listening to us. However, I thought it was unnatural to ignore the 10th anniversary of our major label debut and the establishment of our private label―basically, who we are now. So, I wrote the lyrics with the intention of making it the song that would start off SCANDAL's second chapter. It felt like we were able to remake a debuting song once more.


──The positive message that's almost refreshing feels like it perfectly fits the word "debut." But, it's also a word that you can put a spin on because you've stacked up a 10-year career.

HARUNA: Yeah. After all, we definitely couldn't write a song called "Masterpiece" at the time of our actual debut (laughs).

Topics tagged under front-page on  - Page 2 AUyrSkv

RINA: It's because it means "an excellent work." Now that it's a word we can use pleasantly, it turned into a punk song that's also rounded in a good way. I hope it'll create some spectacular scenes at upcoming shows.

HARUNA: Singing this song makes it feel very fresh. It's because it's a new song where we've kind of broken down what's been piled up―rather, we can see what we've cleared it away in a good way. However, we felt a unique feeling of tension when recording it. That's because it's also our first single in a while.

RINA: After all, it's been two years and eight months [since the last single]!

HARUNA: That's right! Also, it's our first single from 「her」. That's why I put all I had into singing it. I think it turned out to be a really good song because it took more time than usual to record.


──So, this single is a double A-side one. The other song 「Mabataki」 is a city pop number with a girly atmosphere to it. It feels like there's a great meaning by including this song with the abrasive rock tune 「Masterpiece」.

RINA: That's right. We thought that it'd be possible for the four of us to also make a more personal, girly song by having something crowned with the word 「her」. Since we had an image of wanting to make a double A-side single with a cool song and a cute song, I tried writing a world that leaned towards being very cute. I'm really happy because it really feels like I was able to give shape to one of my favorite types of songs.


_____________________________________________________________

Singing 「Mabataki」 at 10% power

_____________________________________________________________

──The lyrics and music for 「Mabataki」 were both written by RINA.

RINA: Yes. I thought having a song with content that was a little more vague than usual would be good, so I wrote the lyrics as if having the song end on the note of, "So, what happened to to this love?" The ending isn't clear by only vaguely thinking in their room at night of the person they love. I personally really like having rounded words to express that vagueness, so I think that my preferences came out quite a bit (laughs).


──Being able to depict that kind of world is something unique to all-girl bands, isn't it?

HARUNA: Yes, we think so.


──MAMI did the arrangement. It has a very nice sound that makes you feel the breadth of the band's musicality.

MAMI: Thank you very much. That makes me happy! As I had a rather clear image of what RINA-chan had in mind, I made it while we exchanged fine details. We usually use driving drums that are relatively close to a raw sound, but this time we chose to go with techo and dance music-like sounds. We overlapped two or three different sounds of the kick drum and were conscious of making sounds that didn't exist. I think I was able to try various things while inserting sounds that felt comfortable.


──The way you constructed it is completely different from 「Masterpiece」.

MAMI: It is completely different! The way we recorded the music was completely different too.

RINA: It's really fun to be able to do a completely different approach as one band. This song features TOMOMI on lead vocals.

Topics tagged under front-page on  - Page 2 YhEnjUa

──It feels like it's been a while since TOMOMI has sung.

TOMOMI: Since it had been a while, I was able to sing with a very fresh feeling. Like in the past, after HARUNA and I each sang the entire song, I also enjoyed the task of dividing the parts up like a puzzle. Since this is a soft song, I first sang at about 30% of my usual power. But when I was told, "Maybe make it a little gentler," I ended up singing at 10% power (laughs).

RINA: (laughs). It was really fun because we went in a different direction than usual, like, "Not energetically; conservatively!"


──HARUNA, did you also sing at 10%?

HARUNA: I did (laughs). I'm really glad that we recorded vocals for 「Masterpiece」 on a different day. It definitely would have been impossible if it had been on the same day.

MAMI: We recorded the vocals for 「Mabataki」 after first recording the music. Besides, we got a little sleepy since we had eaten. I think that influenced the song in a good way (laughs).

TOMOMI: We sang it around 10 pm. We were singing while feeling airy (laughs).


──It's a song that depicts one girl's personal feelings, but it's also fun to sing it with two people.

RINA: Yeah. Therefore, a dreamy-like atmosphere comes out in it a bit.

HARUNA: It's fun being in SCANDAL since two songs at opposite extremes were born. Girls' appearances change depending on the day, right? Like, "I'll wear these clothes today," or "I'll do this kind of makeup today." Being able to enjoy that feeling as a band is one of the best parts of SCANDAL―I thought again through this production. Two songs that express the multifacetedness of girls turned out to be the perfect first work, and one that we're proud of, released on 「her」.


_____________________________________________________________

Aiming the fan club tour towards "MANIA" while feeling summer gradually set in on the nationwide tour

_____________________________________________________________

──You have your 「SCANDAL MANIA TOUR 2019」 fan club tour that starts at the end of March, and then you'll start your 「SCANDAL TOUR 2019 "Fuzzy Summer Mood"」 nationwide tour that starts in June.

MAMI: First, we'll have a pretty manical, interesting setlist for our fan club tour. So, we want the "MANIA" people to look forward to it.

HARUNA: We're planning all sorts of things (laughs).

RINA: Then, in June is our first tour of the new era. I think it would be nice to have a feel-good tour while feeling summer set in gradually amidst ambiguous temperatures when the seasons change.


──That's exactly like the title (laughs).

RINA: Yes (laughs). Our fan club tour also hasn't started yet, so we'll be working the content out from now, but we hope to deliver something solid as a band while having a structure that's more self-directed. We want to make sure to convey our current mood.

HARUNA: We're also going to the area of Obihiro for the first time. It'd be great to get more new comrades.

MAMI: I think it's also great that this is a live house tour. We're going back to the basics―rather, it really feels like we're starting again from here on out.

TOMOMI: Our environment has changed and we're feeling very excited right now. It feels very fresh, so we hope to keep holding on to that the entire tour. It's been like that since we first formed, but since we've headed towards something that makes us excited and seems like fun, we want to always keep chasing after new things.

SCANDAL @ HUSH!! Full Music 2019 - Fri Mar 29, 2019 10:49 am

SCANDAL to perform as a headliner at the Macau music festival 『HUSH!! Full Music 2019』

Topics tagged under front-page on  - Page 2 Ns68oYr

SCANDAL will be performing as a key headliner at the music festival 『HUSH!! Full Music 2019』 to be held at Macau's Hac Sa Beach.

SCANDAL has been active overseas since 2015 when they held 『SCANDAL WORLD TOUR 2015「HELLO WORLD」』, their first solo world tour that drew out a combined total of 80,000 people and went around to 10 cities in eight countries including France, the United Kingdom, Singapore, Hong Kong, and the US. In 2016 they held 『SCANDAL TOUR 2016 "YELLOW" IN EUROPE』, their first solo European tour that consisted of 10 performances. Last year they held tours in Asia and North America that consisted of six performances apiece.

Releasing their first single 「Masterpiece / Mabataki」 on their private label "her" on 3/27, they posted both songs' music videos on YouTube and garned many comments from fans all over the world, once again proving their popularity abroad. Their headlining appearance at 『HUSH!! Full Music 2019』 is no doubt linked to their success overseas.

SCANDAL's release event for 「Masterpiece / Mabataki」 - a huge success
Topics tagged under front-page on  - Page 2 4QoD9iO




SCANDAL, who released their first single 「Masterpiece / Mabataki」 from their private label "her," held 「SCANDAL New Single 『Masterpiece / Mabataki』 Release Commemoration - Bakuon Shichou-kai (Explosive Listening Party) at Kawasaki CLUB CITTA'」 on 3/27.

MAMI: Just like our standing positions when we play a live show, the guitar sounds are divided between the left and right sides so that you can hear each of phrases played by HARUNA's guitar and MAMI's guitar.

TOMOMI: We make sounds so that the bassline can easily be seen on typical recordings, but this time it was distorted to the limit to do the same thing live. Please feel the vibration of the bass with these big speakers today.

Talks about manical "sounds" unique to this explosive listening party unfolded. Additionally, as a special surprise, they streamed the first demo of 「Masterpiece」 made by MAMI, exciting the fans throughout the venue who were able to hear this rare audio that is completely different from the CD version.

Topics tagged under front-page on  - Page 2 1la38wU

At the end of the event, RINA said this: "The four of us got the courage to start our label, decided to try creating various things from scratch for the first time, and began our new musical lives together with this year's spring. 「Masterpiece」 means "an excellent work," but it's not simply about this work only; I want to call fun things, sad things, and stories I've walked through so far, "masterpieces." There are all sorts of things that happen in your every day lives, but there are no useless moments. Those are the thoughts we put into this song. We're always thinking of how thankful we are that you've chosen our music among the many bands out there. We'll keep making music that gets close to you and makes your daily lives brighter and enjoyable."

They also conveyed a message to the fans about the joy of being able to release something from their new label, ending the successful event as the venue was filled with warm applause.

The short film-like music video for 「Mabataki」 that's like peeking into SCANDAL's room has been released as well. They will also be holding 「SCANDAL New Single 『Masterpiece / Mabataki』 Release Commemoration Hohoemi Zadan-kai (Smiling Round-Table Discussion)」 at Abeno Q's Mall in Osaka on 4/1.


What "Masterpiece" means
Theme:RINA

Our double A-side single
『Masterpiece / Mabataki』
Is out today!

We talk more about the songs
In all sorts of interviews
So it'd make me happy
If you check them out while enjoying them




The word "masterpiece" in Japanese
Means "an excellent work"
Originally, MAMI sent me a demo
Fitted with a temporary song sung in nonsensical English,
And I misheard something in first few lines
As "masterpiece."
After that, that word somehow stuck around in my head...

Since last year, every Wednesday
The four of us alone go to a rehearsal studio even if we don't have an upcoming live show
And make time for us
To practice, produce, have sessions, and talk.
Last year was also the year
The four of us celebrated the tenth anniversary of our major label debut,
And we had many chances during interviews
To look back on who we are now.
Maybe because of that too,
There were many days
Where we'd reminisce naturally in the studio
And talk about the future we're currently thinking of

It's only been ten years, but they've been ten steady years.
We feel that this is really a result
That only could have been obtained by continuing this
So it feels like it's an important footprint for us.
That's why we made a song
Where we wanted to write lyrics
That properly summarized our story
And searched for and gathered up lots of words
That could be delivered to everyone right now.

"Put all of the regretful, lonely experiences
Happy, tearful events
Joy and sadness together.
All of the days so far have been necessary,
And each day that you have passed through
Is each its own masterpiece"
We want to continue to saying this with our music.

May we continue being able to take you along with us

SCANDAL「マスターピース / まばたき」インタビュー&1日密着|自分たちだけの場所で迎えた第2章の幕開け - 音楽ナタリー 特集・インタビュー
natalie.mu

マスターピースは日本語にすると
"傑作"という意味です
もともとMAMIがデタラメ英語で歌った
仮歌をハメたデモを送ってきてくれてて、
その歌い出しが
"マスターピース"に空耳したんです。
そこから、何だかこのワードが頭に残ってて...

去年から毎週水曜日に
ライブがなくてもリハスタに4人だけで入って
練習したり製作したりセッションしたり話したり
する時間を作ってるんだけど、
去年はちょうどメジャーデビュー10周年を
4人で通過できた年だったこともあって
インタビューでこれまでの自分たちを
振り返る機会がたくさんありました。
それもあってなのか、
同じくスタジオ内でも自然と昔話してたり
今思ってる未来のことを話したりする日が
多かったです

まだ10年だけど、しっかり10年あって。
やっぱりこれは続けることでしか得られない
結果と実感だから
大切な足跡だなって感じてます。
だから、この自分たちのストーリーを
しっかり汲み取った歌詞を書きたくて
今だからみんなに届けられる言葉を
いっぱい探して掻き集めて
1曲に仕上げました。

悔しくて孤独な経験も、
うれしくって泣きそうになった出来事も
喜びも悲しみも全部まとめて
これまでの日々はどれも必要だったし、
自分が通過してきた毎日が重なって出来た今が
それぞれのマスターピースだよって
これからも音楽にのせて言い続けたいです。

その先に、あなたを連れて行けるように

【Translated Summary】LINE LIVE Specials to Celebrate SCANDAL's New Single, #3 (Final) - March 25th






The last of these monthly streams!

Spoiler:
-The first thing the band talks about is the pillar promo at Shibuya Station. The band didn't know about the promo, which was a surprise from their staff, at all and found out when their staff suddenly sent them pictures of the pillars. It'll be up until 3/31.


-They then play this video that talks about what'll be in the magazine of LE A, and then go over the store bonuses and show what the clear files + prism calendar look like.


-Next, a short clip of the "Mabataki" MV is played. They talk about how both that and the "Masterpiece" MV are two completely different videos. RINA says that "Masterpiece" features an intense performance only, and how they don't have any instruments at all in "Mabataki." They also talk about how it features dual vocals between TOMO and HARU.


-"Nipper" (the dog statue lol) asks them how they decided to do the scenes in the video.
-RINA: "The song itself is girly and has a soft atmosphere to it, so we wanted to have scenes that represented that. We wore pale vintage clothes and went with a "girls lazing around in their room" feel. We shot all kinds of scenes."
-HARU: "You were in a bathtub."
-RINA: "Yeah, I'm soaking in a bubble bath. It was actually really difficult to do. I was in a jacuzzi-like tub and couldn't sink down. They would tell me to stay submerged for several seconds until they said okay, but I would float up."
-MAMI: "There were too many bubbles."
-RINA: "Yeah. That was the most difficult part. We did it over and over again."
-HARU: "Like in our past videos too, you tend to be in water."
-TOMO: "Which ones again?"
-HARU & MAMI: "'Stamp!'"
-MAMI: "She jumped in the ocean."
-HARU & RINA: "'Koisuru Universe' too."
-RINA: "I had a scene where I was in the shower in my clothes."
-HARU: "You're in charge of water."
-Nipper: "HARUNA, what are you in charge of [in the "Mabataki" video]?"
-HARU: "What was it? Drinking tea--tea time. In charge of tea time."
-Nipper: "What about MAMI?"
-MAMI: "Making sweets. What was it again?"
-RINA: "Pancakes?"
-MAMI: "Pancakes. Yeah."
-Nipper: "What about TOMO?"
-TOMO: "Petting a rabbit and HARUNA on the bed."
-HARU: "Wait, we didn't show that yet!"
-RINA: "Look forward to it!"


-Nipper then asks them how Victor Rock Matsuri was. They say that they were nervous, and that it had been their first live show since Christmas time and their first live show of the year.
-MAMI: "We were like, 'So this is what a live show is!'"
-HARU: "It was exciting to appear with other Victor artists, and I think we were able to show what our live shows are all about."
-RINA: "It was simply fun. After our set, our staff was excited and told us how glad they were, and it made us happy that we're off to a new start with this same team."


-Next, Nipper mentions that they have their "one-day manager" events at Tower Records the next day to commemorate the new single 「Masterpiece / Mabataki (Blink)」. Tower's motto is "NO MUSIC, NO LIFE," so they will be playing a game called "NO MABATAKI, NO LIFE" = a contest to see who can go the longest without blinking. The loser has to do a punishment. A staff members asks who blinks the most. RINA and TOMO gesture to HARU.

-HARU: "I blink a lot."
-RINA: "I feel like TOMO doesn't blink a lot."
-TOMO: "But I'm blinking a lot right now."
-HARU: "Are your eyes itchy?"
-TOMO: "Yeah, some pollen got in them. They're so itchy if I don't produce tears."

-Nipper says that they'll be going in order decided by janken (rock-paper-scissors). MAMI wins and goes first, and lasts 30 seconds. HARU goes second and lasts an incredibly long time and wonders if wearing contacts help. She lasts for about 1 minute, 46 seconds, all the while the members are yelling things behind her, like, "She's too strong!"

-Staff member: "Scary!"
-HARU: "I'm scared of myself too!"

-TOMO goes next and says she'll try to at least match MAMI's time of 30 seconds. She seems to forget it's a staring contest and blinks around 3 seconds later. HARU tells her she can do it again, but she chooses not to.
-TOMO: "It's not even like my eyes were dry yet!"

-RINA goes last and makes it to 45 seconds, which means TOMO is the loser. For her punishment, she has to say "her" in a very enthusiastic way.
-They again say how HARU's too strong, and HARU says that she herself was surprised. M+T+R: "We wouldn't expect anything less."


-Next, they talk their upcoming summer tour, and how it'll be their first tour of the  new era of Japan, which happens in April. Since it's also their first tour after establishing "her," they hope that it'll have a new feeling to it. The merch for the tour was completed recently, which they say is really cute.


-They then talk about 「SCANDAL her ~Kanojo-tachi no Atelier Ten~」 and how they had a space created that drops you into the world of the songs on the single. You can also take pictures there.


-They mention how they recently released the "Masterpiece" MV and wondered what people thought of it. "Really cool!", "I really like it!", "It reminded me of the Kanshasai tour!", "It made me want to go to a live show of yours!", "Your outfits were cool!", etc. One person asks how they shot that effect in the beginning of the video. They put a speaker under a mirror, made the mirror vibrate, and shot it from the mirror.


-At the end, they go over all of the upcoming events related to the single and each say a bit about the LINE LIVEs.

-TOMO: "It was fun! See you at a live show. Come out to our one-day manager events tomorrow!"
-MAMI: "Thanks for participating. I wish this could be a regular, monthly thing! Thanks! I hope we get a chance like this again soon. Thanks for the many comments! See you again from tomorrow! Bye bye!"
-RINA: "These past three months were fun! It's our first single release in a while, and I'm so glad we were able to make something great. We really worked hard to make this, so I'd you to listen to it while enjoying the lyric card and store bonuses. It's also out digitally. We wanted to send it to everyone and have you listen to it in the way you like. I hope you enjoy it in your favorite way of listening to music. Farewell, then!"
-HARU: "Thanks for these past three months! The most important thing is that our new single is out on 3/27, so please pick up the CD. We'll also be holding our one-day manager events, so we'd be happy if you came out and saw us. Again, thanks for these past three months!"

凍りついた心を溶かしてくれるメロディ
口ずさんで 君にも届けたい

風に乗って飛んでゆけ 季節に咲く花のように
揺れながら探してた 歓びに出会える歌を
忘れないで
いくつもの日々を超えて 宝石になる君の涙
夜に置いてきた 願い事を迎えに行こう
眩しく輝いてる朝陽の方へ

雨上がりの空に虹が架かるとは限らない
でも俯いてばっかじゃ見逃しちゃうわ
要はどんな瞬間もヒントにできる無限の想像力

English Translation

A starting signal always rings out suddenly
My racing heartbeat can no longer be stopped
Even if I'm laughed at by someone mean-spirited
I want to challenge myself to pretend to be impervious and innocent

The time I've waited impatiently for is right now! I'll open a new door
And a melody will melt my frozen heart
I want to hum and send it to you too

We'll ride on the wind like flowers blooming in season
Don't forget the song that let us encounter the joy we looked for
As we swayed
Overcoming these several days have turned your tears into gems
Let's pick up the wishes we left behind in the night
And head towards the dazzling morning sun

A rainbow spanning across the sky after it rains is endless
But you'll miss it if all you're doing is hanging your head down
The point is that infinite imagination can give you a hint at any moment
Let's prepare some more - Please me! Please me! God

I'll draw my own map with no mistakes nor correct answers
There's a landscape that I'll arrive at
After breaking what's been piled up

I want to convey, grant, and protect - it's the truth
The future I've aimed for is almost here
I don't want to lose to my timid self
I'll reach out my hand to the light tens of thousands of times

I'm flying around the world and singing to you
As I embrace the newborn joy that's overflowing
In my heart
I've overcome these several days
To be able to sing this "masterpiece" now
When the night ends, let's make our wishes come true
And head towards an endless journey




Mabataki ~ まばたき; Blink

Yuraretari kogaretari tamani yume ni mitari

そんなことばかり考えているの

あといっかいの瞬きで

その後いっかいのくちづけで
弾けてしまうくらい

揺られたり 焦がれたり たまに夢でふたり
このまま醒めないで 夜の意地悪

正解は多分ないね ただあなたを愛してる
不安定な星の上で幸せになりたい

あといっかいの瞬きで
溢れてしまいそう

濡れたまつげが乾く前に…
濡れたまつげが乾く前に…
濡れたまつげが乾く前に…
濡れたまつげが乾く前に…

あといっかいの瞬きで
溢れてしまいそう
その後いっかいのくちづけで
弾けてしまうくらい
好きなのに

English Translation

I get shaken up, I fall in love, and sometimes I dream
About a repetition of days of not being able to concentrate on anything

I'll always want to see you, even if we're separated one day
That's all I've been able to think of

Just one more blink
And my tears will fall
Just one more kiss after that
And I'll just about burst
But I love you

I get shaken up, I fall in love, and sometimes I dream of us
Don't wake me up - the night's so cruel

There's probably no correct answer - I simply love you
I want to find happiness on an unstable star

Just one more blink
And my tears will fall
Just one more kiss after that
And I'll just about burst
But I love you

Before my damp eyelashes dry...
Before my damp eyelashes dry...
Before my damp eyelashes dry...
Before my damp eyelashes dry...

Just one more blink
And my tears will fall
Just one more kiss after that
And I'll just about burst
But I love you

SCANDAL, who established a private record label, will be releasing their first double A-side single 『Masterpiece / Mabataki』 on 3/27!

Topics tagged under front-page on  - Page 2 NrX7Eyn




SCANDAL has established a private record label. The first work they will be releasing on their label on 3/27 is the band's first double A-side single, 『Masterpiece / Mabataki』. We asked HARUNA, MAMI, TOMOMI, and RINA about the details on how their label was started, as well as their latest work that starts the band's second chapter.

Topics tagged under front-page on  - Page 2 QMIIdTe

―Before talking about your new single, we'll be asking about your private record label "her." When did you start thinking about establishing a label?

HARUNA: Last year we celebrated the tenth anniversary of our major label debut, but right before that is around when we started thinking, "It'd be great to do something new in anticipation of SCANDAL's second chapter." As we were discussing that, it flowed to, "How about establishing a private record label?" We prepared for it and were able to launch it this year.

Topics tagged under front-page on  - Page 2 VWGy0o4

―I'm the sure the members all felt that reaching the point of ten years after having your major label debut was a major break for the band.

RINA: Yes. It felt like a major break. It was also a year where we felt we got to experience all sorts of things, and our desire to do something new reached its peak. After we released our album 『HONEY』 last February, we couldn't make songs right away that made it seem like "This is it!"... Up until then, we'd digest the desire to do something new whenever we'd write a new song. However, we didn't feel that last year. We thought it'd be best if we created a new place before we created new songs. We needed a change that would completely change our environment. Since we had those kinds of thoughts, we needed a lot of courage. We decided to establish a label ourselves and make a style of releasing things from there. Accordingly, our music-making started to go smoothly after we decided to establish a label, which means that this was the right thing to do.

Topics tagged under front-page on  - Page 2 XBKNPpv

―Did all of you come up with "her" for the label's name?

RINA: We all discussed what name would be good. We had the general framework of going with a name that would tell you at first glance that it's an all-girl band's label, but there's a surprisingly limited amount of words that directly remind you of women. It was kind of like, 「"she" doesn't feel right. So, maybe "her"」.

MAMI: The word "her" came out in a very natural flow. I think it's because it was close to what we were thinking of.

TOMOMI: The word "her" is the theme we have within ourselves―rather, if there was a book about ourselves, we'd want that word to be the title. It felt like we were moving anew when we established our private label, but perhaps it felt more realistic when we decided on a name. It feels that comfortable.

Topics tagged under front-page on  - Page 2 OyKoBRu

―It doesn't mean that your recording and music production style have changed greatly, but it's a big change emotional-wise to decide on the name of your label and release your work on there.

TOMOMI: Yes.

Topics tagged under front-page on  - Page 2 7KrechX

―Its first work will be the band's first double A-side single, 『Masterpiece / Mabataki』. This song [Masterpiece] features lyrics by RINA and music by MAMI.

MAMI: 「Masterpiece」 had a completely different arrangement when it was just a demo song. The members and the staff liked the song when I made the demo, and we talked about how we'd like to release it someday. But, at that time, we thought that the timing was a little off and I therefore did not give the song shape. Even though I would make songs, I wouldn't stockpile them if the timing didn't work out. However, this time, everyone told me, "That song would be great!", and I tried throwing away my stubborn sense of pride a bit (laughs). But, since only the original arrangement would come to mind, I had Keita Kawaguchi-san do the arrangement. Lyrics-wise, since I entrenched myself and didn't think I could write them well, I had RINA write them.

Topics tagged under front-page on  - Page 2 NAdDiFs

―RINA, what kind of lyrics did you decide to place on MAMI's song?

RINA: The four of us had always been talking about how a cheerful song would be nice, so I thought that lyrics with that kind of content would be good. Because the four of us reaching the tenth year of being a major-label band is linked to us having greater confidence in ourselves, I thought that having content that acknowledged that and pumped out our story would be good. It's our starting song, and since we made it a song that's like 「If we're debuting again, we have to make it this single!」, and since the other three members told me, 「Sounds great!」 when I told them my thoughts in the studio, I began writing the lyrics.

Topics tagged under front-page on  - Page 2 Zlbf8jE

―You included what the four of you have been through up until now, as well as what's to come.

RINA: Yes.

HARUNA: We had sang and performed it live several times before we recorded it, but there was a unique sense of tension when it came to recording vocals for it. Even though I should have been used to singing it, I felt like I couldn't shake off that sense of tension. I sang it over and over again, like, "I'll sing it until we've gotten a good take!" It's become the starting song for SCANDAL's second chapter, and since the lyrics are straight-forward, I tried to sing it frankly and not change it too much so that its message could be delivered properly.

TOMOMI: Our recording was influenced by our live performances of the song. There haven't been many times when we've recorded a song after playing it live. That's why we wanted to lock up the atmosphere we had when playing this song live, and tried getting it close to our live sound, including our instruments; equipment; and settings. It was really fresh and a lot of fun.

RINA: It wasn't like we recorded from zero a song that we just made; the song and how we performed it live was ingrained in our bodies, so I think that was really good.

Topics tagged under front-page on  - Page 2 ArXNf0p

―What did you ask of the arranger Kawaguchi-san?

MAMI: Kawaguchi-san has been watching SCANDAL since our major label debut and knows about the current us, so we thought that asking him would be the right thing to do. Basically, we told him that we wanted the band to be the main source of sound, and we started from telling him, 『At any rate, make it heavy』. I put strings into the demo I made, which gave it a pretty sound, but I said, 『Get rid of it!』 (laughs). Then, we made it by exchanging it over and over again.

Topics tagged under front-page on  - Page 2 V3BI47S

―It feels like, including the music; lyrics; and arrangement, it turned out to be a song that could be delivered to the fans with confidence. It also has the title 「Masterpiece」.

MAMI: The title gives you a feeling of, 「How's this for you!」 (laughs).

Topics tagged under front-page on  - Page 2 QJYgcHA

―Also, the second song on the single, 「Mabataki」, features lyrics and music by RINA, with arrangement by MAMI.

RINA: I was able to write this song relatively around the same time we decided on the name "her" for our label. It's very personal and feminine, and it makes me feel like, "It's completely fine to have a song with a sweet worldview to it." It's precisely because we started a label called "her" that I wanted the four of us to perform this kind of song. I think "SCANDAL" has a strong woman image attached to it. Because that's also SCANDAL-like, I want to keep launching out those aspects while desiring them. I think we have a 「Mabataki」-like femininity within us, so I'm happy that it was able to take shape at this timing. Since 「Masterpiece」 is a completely different type of song, I'm really looking forward to the fans' reactions.

MAMI: As for the arrangement, RINA already knew what kind of song she wanted it to be, so I made it in line with that thought.

HARUNA: Since it's pretty personal song, I tried to sing it very gently and softly. It's the complete opposite of 「Masterpiece」, and such extremely different songs were born. Being able to sing those is a moment that makes me think of how much fun it is to be in SCANDAL.

RINA: This features dual vocals, with TOMOMI singing as well. I wanted it to be sung in a way that would make people feel relaxed, so I told them, 「Sing it with around 10% power」 (laughs).

TOMOMI: It was fun singing it (laughs). Like what everyone else is saying, we broke the rules by daring to make two different types of songs into a double A-side single―rather, it made us think that we can make songs from any angle from here on.

Topics tagged under front-page on  - Page 2 YnSD53t

―Well then, after releasing this single, you'll be going on 「SCANDAL TOUR 2019 "Fuzzy Summer Mood"」, a nationwide tour that starts in June. What kind of tour will it be?

RINA: The title "Fuzzy Summer Mood" perfectly represents our current mode. We hope it'll be a live house tour that incorporates fuzzy feelings and a nice looseness.

HARUNA: It'll be held from June to the beginning of July, the exact period of time when it becomes summer, and it might change rapidly with each performance. Also, since the season of summer festivals will start after our tour ends, we want to build up a lot of strength while on tour.

We were in Hiroshima for two daysー!
While we got to do a ton of things
For TV and radio, and did a magazine interview,
We also enjoyed the food of Hiroshima
And time went by in the blink of an eye
But it was such a fun time☺️

It made us so happy
That a ton of people came out to our public radio recording too!!
The members have always been talking about this
But we really want to hurry up and take a private trip here...

"Masterpiece" (the song) can actually be purchased on international iTunes stores! This at least works in the US, but it probably will work in other countries too.

If you search "SCANDAL Masterpiece" or "SCANDAL (JP) Masterpiece" and click on the price of the song, it'll prompt you to log in to your iTunes account and then let you purchase it!

Note: Don't click on the album title; it'll give you a prompt that says it's "not available" in your country. Weird, yes, but you are nevertheless able to purchase it if you click on the price. One of my friends and I tried it and it worked for us!

When you click on that link, you're directed to your own country's iTunes Store. It currently only directs to the correct SCANDAL if you're in Japan.

Since iTunes has not yet made the single available to purchase internationally, nor has the rest of their discography been made available for purchase on there once more, it's currently linking to another band for everyone outside of Japan (that 80s band as well as some street punk band from London).

It'll probably be fixed once the single's officially out on the 27th.
