Twitterでわたしが書いたアルバム【HELLO WORLD】全曲説明をブログにもまとめておきます☺️︎良ければ見てね!



M01. Image
アリーナ公演あたりに出来た曲で今のバンドのモードが前面に出てる。もっと良い明日に行きたい、また新しい自分で生きたい。ステージに立ちながら先を見ていた。痛快で爽やかで真っ直ぐな曲をシングルカット、アルバムの幕開けに出来て良かった。何事も、大切なのはイメージだ!


M02.Your song
5月のプチツアー中に作った曲。珍しく曲先で歌詞に凄く時間をかけた。行き着いた先は、泥臭く人間味溢れるメッセージ。こういうのは本気で思った時しか出来ない。大事な時に大切な人が必ず傍に居てくれるとは限らない。自分のリモコンは自分だ。リスナーが育てたライブ曲


M03.love in action
『8ビートでも4つ打ちでも無いリズムの曲がやりたい!』MAMIにメールしたらこの曲が返ってきた。歌/ギター/ベース/ドラム全てが同じリズムを刻む快感とハッピー感。楽しい。ところどころに出てくるD-BEAMが良いスパイスになってます。合唱したい


M04.Departure
今年はこれから始まった。新曲なのに、遠い昔から存在していたかのような安心感がある曲。バンドのストーリーを辿ってから聴くとまた違う感じ方をしてもらえるかもしれない。心地良いストリングスと日本の情緒。四季の魅力が詰まったオールシーズン聴きたくなる桜ソング。


M05.Graduation
HARUNAから弾き語りのデモが送られてきたとき、26歳の女性らしさとルーツが今までで1番前に出てるなーと思った。会って話すと『カラオケで歌いやすい曲にしたい』と伝えてくれた。なるほど、と。キーやメロディラインにとことん拘ったアーバンなロックチューン


M6.夜明けの流星群 
ポケモンの主題歌を歌えるなんて夢みたいだ。子供の頃家族で過ごす夏休みが大好きだった。ピアノと映画に夢中で、たった一夏でぐっと成長してた気がする。あの幸福感やトキメキが詰まったような、大きなステージや巨大なスクリーンが抜群に似合う、大人にもう一度夢を見せる曲


M07.お願いナビゲーション
去年のホールツアー中に書きました。メロはMAMI。ちょうどその頃、メンバーが運転免許を取りに行くと話してて、シチュエーションを車内に決定。見事合格!自分達が得意な曲調に仕上げました


M08.Runners high
初めての大阪城ホール公演が終わったあと、HARUNAが最初に持ってきた歌詞。インディーズ時代からの夢が叶っても、もぬけの殻になる事なく、その場所にこそスタートラインがあることを実感。生活感のある曲が集まったアルバムの中で良い意味で浮いたライブ曲


M09.本を読む
好きな人の好きなものを好きになる。をテーマにMAMIが作詞作曲編曲し、自らリードボーカルをとるナンバー。他メンバーがハモる3声のコーラスも聴きどころ。もう8年一緒に居るけど、彼女はこの曲の主人公のように昔から本が苦手だ。そこから変化した心をなぞるような歌詞。良い


M10.缶ビール
ロマンチックな曲を書きたいとぼんやりしていた時、TVから流れてきたお酒のCM。ハッとしてペンを取るも、お酒が弱い自分には飲める女性の気持ちを上手く描けず、それならばと飲めない女性目線の歌詞に仕上げる。TOMOMIが作詞作曲リードボーカルをとる色気のあるナンバー。


M11.Winter story
気が付けば夏曲ばかり作ってきたので、あたたかい冬の曲を作りました。数年付き合って酸いも甘いも知ったカップルの円満期の歌。サビの出だし一行はずいぶん前からいつか使おうと思ってたもの。歪んだメロトロンが良い。クリスマスに恋人同士で聴いてもらいたい1曲


M12.おやすみ
去年のホールツアー中、 ホテルのベッドの上で作詞。アリーナ公演をやるようになって、スケール感のある曲を書きたくなった。変化するコードとリズム、変わらないメロディの組み合わせで私流シューゲイザー。永遠に爛々として生きていたい。RINA作詞作曲リードボーカル/ギター


M13.Place of life
小室哲哉さんと一緒に作った曲。小室さんがバンドをプロデュースってあまりイメージにないと思うけど、バンドを組む前、ダンスばかりしていた私たちにとって音楽のルーツとなる人。【命】と言う大きなテーマで生まれた最高のエピローグ



最後まで読んでくれてありがとう!
毎年アルバムの解説を自分なりにしてきてるんだけど、今回がいちばんスラスラ書けました。あとは、生で伝えます。



わたしも買って来ました!
うれしくって自分でもよく聴いてます

In this blog I've gathered the song explanatons that I wrote on Twitter about all of the songs on our album 【HELLO WORLD】☺️︎Check it out, if you'd like!



M01. Image
A song we completed around the time of our arena performances; our current band mode has come forth to the front. We want to head to an even greater tomorrow and be someone new again. We looked ahead while standing on stage. A thrilling, refreshing, straight-forward song done in a single cut. I'm glad we made this the opener to the album. Anything important is an image!


M02. Your song
A  song we made while on our small tour in May. Unusually writing the music first, we took a long amount of time to pen the lyrics. We ended up with an earthy message that's full of humanity. You can only do it when you seriously think of things like that. Those important to us aren't always around at important times. You are your own remote control. A live song that the listeners have cultivated


M03. love in action
MAMI e-mailed us, 『I want to do a rhythm song with no eight beats or 4/4 !』 and this song was returned. A pleasant feeling of the singing/guitars/bass/drums all beat out of rhythm and a happy feeling. It's fun. The D-BEAM that comes out once in a while gives it a good spice. I want to do a chorus together


M04. Departure
This year started from here. Even though it's a new song, it's a song that has a sense of security, like it's been around for a long time. You might get a different feeling from it when you listen to it after following the band's story. Pleasant strings and emotions of Japan. A sakura song packed with the appeal of  the four seasons that you'll want to listen to all seasons.


M05. Graduation
When HARUNA sent us the demo of her playing and singing this herself, I thought that a 26-year-old's femininity and roots are coming through to the front more than ever beforeー.  When we met and talked about it, she told us, 『 I want it to be a easy-to-sing song at karaoke』. It was like, "Ah, I see." An urban rock tune thoroughly mixed up in keys and melody lines


M6. Yoake no Ryuuseigun
Being able to sing a Pokemon theme song is like a dream. I loved spending summer vacation as a family when I was a kid. Hooked on piano and movies, I feel like I had grown so much in just one summer. The big stage and huge screen that were like they were packed with that happiness and excitement excellently suiting it; a song that'll have you dreaming once more as an adult


M07. Onegai Navigation
The sequel to 【Awanai Tsumori no, Genki de ne】. I wrote this on our hall tour last year while imagining that girl's near future. The melody is by MAMI. Exactly around then is when the members were talking about getting their driving licenses, and we decided on the situation in the car. They passed with flying colors! We finished it with a great melody


M08. Runners high
After our first performance at Osaka-Jo Hall, HARUNA brought out lyrics first. Even though our dream since our indie days had come true, we realized that in its place was the starting line. A live song that floated with a good meaning within our album that has songs with a lived-in feel to them.


M09. Hon wo Yomu
Beginning to like what the person you like likes. MAMI wrote the lyrics/music/composition with that theme and took it upon herself to do the lead vocals for. Another important point is that the other 3 members harmonize in a chorus. We've already been together for eight years, and she's always been bad with books like the hero of this song. Lyrics that trace a transformed mind. Great


M10. Kan Biiru
When we vaguely wanted to write a romantic song, a commercial for a beer came on TV. Suddenly take a pen and, as a girl who's bad with alcohol, finish the lyrics from the perspective of a girl who doesn't drink, instead of well-drawing out the feelings of a girl who drinks. A number with the glamour of lyrics/music/lead vocals by TOMOMI.


M11. Winter story
Since I noticed I had been writing nothing but summer songs, I made a warm winter song. A song about the end of a couple who had been going out for years and know what bittersweet is. I had been wondering when the line that the chorus begins from that I made a while ago would be used. The distorted Mellotron is good. One song I'd like lovers to listen to on Christmas


M12. Oyasumi
While on my hotel bed, I wrote the lyrics on our hall tour last year. Doing arena performances was possible, and I wanted to write a song with a sense of scale. Shoegazing with a combination of an unchanging melody and changing chords and rhythms. Wanting to live forever glittering. Lyrics, music, lead vocals/guitar by RINA


M13. Place of life
A song we made together with Tetsuya Komuro. I don't really imagine Komuro-san producing many bands, but, for us who did nothing but dance before forming a band, he's a person with musical roots. The best epilogue born with the large theme called 【life】



Thank you for reading all the way until the end!
Each year I write my own commentary about the album, but this time I was able to write it more smoothly than I ever have before. What's left is to tell it in person.

I wondered in the album thread about whether Oyasumi was influenced somehow by My Bloody Valentine - now I think Rina must actually know them based on her description. They are the only shoegaze band that plays with the tremolo like that - it's their trademark. I'm pretty amazed that they have an MBV-inspired song on this album. I never would have guessed they'd even know anything about that style.

OK they must really stop being so awesome because I'm not gonna make it. RINA's explanations are so clear and revelatory! Especially the one on Oyasumi, I noticed that it was the same vocal melody going through the whole song.
