I'll be posting translations of SCANDAL's interview about Departure with BARKS in 3 intervals, since it's a rather lengthy interview that'll take a while for me to complete.

Here is the first part.

We want to complete songs with only our own sound:

Nice to read about their recording process. They keep getting better as musician.
Btw, string height can be expressed in term of "action".

Ah, thanks so much Jade! This seems like a very insightful talk - I love it when they talk about all the technicalities of recording and such. Hearing that pretty much nothing was changed from Mami's guitar arrangement was new too. Personally I really love the arrangement, especially in the second verse where it gets more funkier.

I remember reading the Barks interview for Runners high and the producer was completely different from Seiji Kameda XD I remember how strict the other arranger was lol, guess it just shows how people work differently from each other and their different ideas when it comes to music. I do love Seiji Kameda's arrangements in a variety of songs though - I think he's a really good producer.

Can't wait for the next sections to be posted. Thanks again!

Lots of technical stuff I don't understand but still it's interesting to read. They also did record OVERDRIVE completely differently, basically they can do anything now when they record it seems ^^

Not sure I understand the part where HARU didn't "hear" her guitar at the end and is embarrassed.

Once again, I'm losing it at all this Kameda-shishou talk. XD He is a fantastic producer and I love his sound and input - the strings made a lot more sense after hearing he was involved.
I hope this is the beginning of many more collaborations between SCANDAL and shishou; I feel like his approach is quite compatible and encouraging them to grow in much more organic ways as opposed to CAPSULE's Yasutaka.

Otsukare, Jade~!

"Sometimes a sound's features disappear when distorting. But, this time, since I could really hear the rhythm guitar sound......"


Turning the distortion on changes the sound. Some stuff disappears (some "mistakes" included, but not only), and some others sounds appears or become louder (such as harmonics). When you're used to play something with the distortion on, and then you turn it off, it may not sound as great as the distorted sound and you think "OMG, I suck" :p I guess that's whats she tried to say.


BUT, guitar it's a complex universe. There are stuff that sounds great with distortion and weak without it (heavy metal licks, power chords, and more) even if they are very well played. On the other hand, playing clean ryhtmic guitars ain't easy, because mistakes will always go up to the front.

Here's the second part, where they talk about "Rainy."

A song that's enjoyable and that the audience can participate in is, in short, a live song:

So they better play Rainy in the arenas, wonder how it will be with the crowd  Onion Smile 

It's interesting to read such interviews where they explain the process of a song.

Thanks so much for the translations, Jade!

Reading that Rainy's solo was ad-libbed made me laugh like Rina too, haha. It's a good solo though; Imo, Mami's really shined in this single as a guitarist and composer. Again, I really do love it when they talk about the technical stuff of recording and producing. It's really interesting.

Thank you so much for translating the last part! Since it'd been a while, I thought that you weren't gonna translate the last part, haha. The whole interview was really fun to read and I laughed pretty hard at that 'bouuuuuu' Tomomi moment in the third part. Oh Tomo.

Laughed hard at the Bouuuu moment too lol, so TIMO  Peace Onion 

About RINA's house, weren't they in their house for a documentary (NHK?)? Nice they didn't do a "fake" in the end to respect the spirit of the project.

Thanks for the translation.
