RINA's "eternal" Lyrics Essay
Topics tagged under scandal_eternal on SCANDAL HEAVEN Rinaeternal

All of the pain and joy I've experienced so far was right here in my pocket, allowing me to write about it.




On March 3rd, 2021, SCANDAL released eternal, their first single of their 15th anniversary year. In addition to the new song "eternal" produced by Satori Shiraishi, who has co-wrote many of the band's songs so far, this work also includes a remix of the same song by TOWA TEI as the B-side track. Please enjoy it!

Today's song column is a lyrics essay penned by RINA. Spelled out are the words she's found through playing music with all her strength, honesty, and tact for 15 years. This essay also conveys the feelings included in their new song "eternal." Please take it in along with the lyrics.



~Lyrics Essay: "eternal"~


You wake up from a dream.
Your pillow is sunken down along with your head. You set free the humified air through the window and head to the chilly living room. You start the day by repeating the same things, and spend every day looking for similar but slightly different discrepancies.

You've been moving forward through the light that keeps shining despite being small, without deciding on where to go today. Time goes by, even if sad things happen or if you find a happiness that couldn't be better, and you forget about them or they fade away until they become beautiful memories.

We've cried and laughed a lot during the 15 years we've been a band. We have devoted the entirety of our lives to it every year. Looking back, it's gone by in no time at all and feels as if I warped here from the time I was a middle schooler. Now we've made it to the front of the 15th door.

I don't really know what it means to be successful or rewarded, but the four of us have always been carefully and thoroughly searching for the correct answers. No matter how far we go, it's like we're always in the midway point of a marathon. Sometimes it feels like we can't run anymore if we stop for even a little bit, and sometimes we get so nervous that we don't even like it, which bothers both others and ourselves. Oh boy.

Before we knew it, dreams and goals were outstripped and changed into existence and life. That happened gradually and naturally. However, we made sure that they turned into colors that we ourselves chose. We're now at the point where we can praise ourselves a little, like saying, "We've done a good job so far." By just recognizing and forgiving ourselves, we learned for the first time that there's a release that comes with it. Everyone should be able to touch/experience a gentler world, especially during these times.

Sometimes it seems that fantasy is the most continuous thing right now. I was able to write a realistic, honest, and earnest song. All of the pain and joy I've experienced so far was right here in my pocket, allowing me to write about it.

When there's fog in front of you, wait for the wind and fan each other. Even if lost or broken, it'll be restored. Leave the future to your future self in favor of this moment. This moment doesn't last forever. Even if we're scared, we'll unlock it again. Keep continuing to watch us.

<SCANDAL・RINA>


SCANDAL|A song they want to keep singing, born from their individual thoughts

Topics tagged under scandal_eternal on SCANDAL HEAVEN 1XM4VCE




SCANDAL has released their new single eternal, their first work of 2021.

Due to the pandemic, the domestic performances of their tour last year were all canceled and their overseas performances postponed. Though they had doubts and worries about not being able to perform concerts—their life's work—they renewed their determination to move forward without stopping and completed their new song "eternal" that contains their actual thoughts at this time. Along with their old friend Satori Shiraishi serving as producer, they tried out a completely different production style with this work that's full of a strong will for a future that shines dazzlingly.

In this interview, we asked the quartet to look back on the state of the band last year and how this work was created.

What they noticed during 2020, the year of COVID


[b]──First, we'd like to hear about the state of the band last year. Despite the pandemic, we get the impression that SCANDAL had been steadily moving forward and flexibly responding to all sorts of things such as producing music remotely, holding livestream concerts, and projects utilizing social media.[/b]

HARUNA: Last year we often played it by ear, so it felt like we managed to survive while being forced to make a bunch of choices each time something happened. However, there were many things that we were able to do by fully making use of things like social media, and that's exactly why "Living in the city," which was released digitally last June, is a song that wouldn't have been released if not for lockdown. In that sense, I think last year was a period when it seemed like we could try different things.

TOMOMI: "Living in the city" was written before the pandemic began, and is a song about everyday life in Tokyo. In this situation, we were reminded how dear our ordinary, everyday lives really were to us. This song was written was nothing was really going on, but it being delivered to everyone with that new meaning and having it resonate with many people was something positive that happened for us.



──Ironically, COVID brought about something for you all.

HARUNA: Yes. Also, something else we realized once again last year was that we're able to put on concerts because we have an audience. That was of course something we had taken for granted, and we really felt that having an audience means the world to us.



──You did have to cancel all of your domestic performances of the tour that was to be held in support of your album Kiss from the darkness that came out last year, and also postponed the overseas ones.

TOMOMI: Not being able to put on concerts and see our fans in person in such a long time was a first for us since our major label debut. It felt as though our life force was draining away as time went on. When nothing came to mind even when listening to music, it really made us think, "Aah, we can't maintain our energy if we don't have concerts to play."

RINA: I got a little lost when writing lyrics because we no longer had concerts to play. For the first time I realized that I had been overflowing with words because we had the opportunities to play concerts.

MAMI: I feel similarly to RINA. I couldn't sort out my feelings around March or April, so I couldn't write any songs at all. I thought that it'd be important to reset my head once, so I temporarily gave up writing songs in May and shifted my state of mind to make something that could be made at any given time. I feel that living a normal life was very meaningful during that time.

RINA: That's right. It was a very positive thing for us, getting to live a life where you'd get up in the morning, eat breakfast you made yourself, and sleep in your own bed every night. Of course a life of traveling to many countries on tour also makes us happy, but having that regular kind of life is also very important.

MAMI: That said, since it really was very disappointing not being able to play concerts as usual, we couldn't just come to a stop—we never stopped feeling that.

A new form of expression obtained during a concert with restrictions


──During that time, you held two solo concerts last year. The first one was held on August 21st, the day of the band's anniversary, which was a one-night only livestream concert that perfectly recreated what your planned tour was supposed to be like. The second one was "SCANDAL『SEASONS』 collaborated with NAKED," a concert with a live audience that was held at Toyosu PIT on December 24th.

HARUNA: During our livestream concert in August, we got to experience something a bit strange by feeling both the loneliness of not having an audience in front of us and the assurance that our fans were just on the other side of the screen. We had a live audience for our concert in December and had to make sure to put on a proper performance in the midst of not being able to hear the audience's voices at all, so that in itself also felt strange (laughs).



──I see. But "SEASONS" was an innovative concert that exhibited a new form of expression for SCANDAL.

TOMOMI: Up until now we had been focusing on concerts where we'd all come together as one, but since the audience couldn't verbalize during the concert due to the pandemic, all of us discussed a ton about how we could put on a concert that you can enjoy just by watching. As a result, we were able to achieve that by collaborating with the video-creating company NAKED who created some wonderful videos for us. That kind of concert style fits us very well now as we've gotten older. We of course also want to keep playing concerts where the audience can scream and let loose, but we were able to obtain a new form of expression again.

Topics tagged under scandal_eternal on SCANDAL HEAVEN Exr6jNU

MAMI: Every year it's like our phase changes when we complete a tour, and last year after our concert in August is when we felt that. On top of that, it was very meaningful getting to do a new type of concert in December. It strengthened our feelings of wanting to keep doing even more new things.

TOMOMI: That's right. It felt as if our blood that had stopped moving had begun to circulate all at once.

HARUNA: Yeah. This year being our 15th anniversary was also a big part of that. There were also times when each of us got lost and production was about to stop, but the milestone of our 15th anniversary became a big driving force to start moving again. At this time we wanted to re-express the meaning and strength of being in an all-girl band for 15 years, and we wanted to make sure to leave behind a legacy.




Chatting with Satori Shiraishi and looking back on recording


──RINA, in a blog entry in October of last year, you wrote, "Recently, we've been trying to write [songs] in a way that's a little different than we have before, and we're completely changing things like the locations where we play and the number of people gathered."

Topics tagged under scandal_eternal on SCANDAL HEAVEN 5rNMF9t

RINA: Yes. We switched how we make songs starting right from "eternal." This time we tried out a style of the members going one by one in order to the small home studio of producer Satori Shiraishi, whom we've been working with for a long time now, to complete the song. Satori is like a senior whom we can speak to about anything, whether it be about music or about personal matters, so I think this was something born from the relationship we share with him.



──「"her" Diary 2021」 has been available to view on your YouTube channel starting from the end of January. [The first episode] focuses on the production of that song, doesn't it?

HARUNA: That's right. Satori is speaking to me in the video. Since it's essentially just the two of us working in the studio, our work consists of recording vocals while talking about what we're thinking, and we make revisions while we're listening to that. That way of doing things felt very fresh, and I felt more than ever the importance of taking responsibility for my singing. What I've done until now is to record vocals while each member gives me direction, which can draw out a method of singing that they lack. I think that's a good method on its own, but this time I wanted to draw out something within myself and put it in the song. By doing so, I think it's become a song that'll reach listeners even more profoundly.




──When you see the video, it certainly does feel like you're emitting who you really are.

HARUNA: Yeah. It's because I emitted all the parts I don't like toward Satori (laughs). By doing that, I was strangely able to record a good take. There are some things that come forth by having a third party accept what you can't digest on your own.

RINA: When I listened to HARUNA's singing, I felt that it was certainly different than usual and that the first nuance is included. I also re-recorded the rhythm based on that singing. The atmosphere at the beginning of the song and the relaxed rhythm of the second chorus came to mind when I listened to HARUNA's singing.



──Did you work on the instrument recordings individually as well?

RINA: Yes. Each person was responsible for finishing their part to a satisfactory level. For drums, I recorded it by hitting drum pads while trying out different tones on the computer, and then shared it everyone when recording was done. Then, the next person would add sound to that—that's how we proceeded. Because it was made in the minimal environment of Satori's home studio, we were able to be like, "I do want to change this phrase after all" and make it very flexibly. The vocals were re-recorded about three times, and as I mentioned earlier, I changed the rhythm to match it. Finally getting there after repeatedly fixing things until all of us could say it's perfect was because we were able to put in plenty of time due to the pandemic.

Topics tagged under scandal_eternal on SCANDAL HEAVEN FqzTM3q

TOMOMI: The way we did things this time, I think it's great that each person was able to record in a very relaxed state. In my case, I got to Satori's studio and spent the first two hours chatting, then recorded bass for about 30 minutes, chatted for another two hours, and then I went home (laughs). Like that relaxed mood, I was able to make something different in terms of sound since I borrowed Satori's amps.

MAMI: I too only started recording after chatting for an hour or two at first (laughs). After I finished playing guitar, we talked for another hour before I went home.

TOMOMI: Chatting is important (laughs). Even if you talk about something unrelated to music, it affects the mood and so it also has an effect on your playing.

MAMI: That's right. You don't have to be too serious, and you can play while feeling all warm inside. I think that being able to record in an environment like that enabled us to create a sound suitable for the lyrics and melody.



──How long did it take to complete the song?

RINA: We did a lot of re-recording. How long did it take?

MAMI: I gave you guys the demo in July, and from there I think we worked on it for 3-4 months. We also took our time until we recorded it for real. That doesn't usually happen, though.

HARUNA: The footage used in 「“her” Diary」 was probably filmed around October, and from that point on we were doing that kind of work several times over. We also did stuff like re-recording drums again.




──As you recorded in this new style, what did you imagine the completed song to look like?

RINA: We had a lot of meetings about that at the beginning of production. The first thing that came to mind was a song that makes you feel it's a song that's kicking things off. Also, we imagined ourselves singing it while bathed in a strong light at Osaka-Jo Hall. Color-wise, it'd be a bit pale; if it was cloth, it'd be sheer. We had a nuanced image of it, so our course of action was determined based on that. From there, MAMI made a demo of her singing to her own accompaniment.

MAMI: Yeah. The image of it might have been pretty easy to define because a lot of nuances popped up at the meeting.

RINA: Also, we had decided on the tempo at the start of it all.

MAMI: Yeah. We also wanted to give this a tempo and rhythm we hadn't done much before.




There are also more flexible and pliant parts to us


──Why did you make a demo where you sang and played the nuances you received?

MAMI: Up until now, I've often made fairly solid demos where I've even decided on and included the musical phrasing. The image of it will be solidified if you complete those during the demo stage, and even if you try to tear that down, you won't be able to do so easily. That's why I decided to stop doing that this time. It felt like a new challenge since I've only made about one or two demos where I've sung to my own accompaniment in the past.

Topics tagged under scandal_eternal on SCANDAL HEAVEN Hxdr7UR

RINA: I added lyrics to that demo. HARUNA added temporary vocals to it, and we shared our image of it while talking to Satori about the specific arrangement.




──The arrangement makes you feel a positive strength as well as an enveloping warmth, which makes you feel SCANDAL's new form of expression.

RINA: I'm happy to hear that. I think there are many people who have an image of SCANDAL being strong and sharp, but we don't want to only play music like that right now. There are also more flexible and pliant parts to us. That's why we wanted to make sure to show that via a single, and why we wrote the lyrics and music with a theme of liberating ourselves. We feel that it's become a song that naturally expresses our intentions that this is who we truly are right now. It's because we wrote about our natural feelings that it's also become a song that we think we'll be able to keep performing for a long time.



──The phrase "Make this moment last eternally" that repeats at the end of the song leaves a strong impression. What sorts of feelings did you put into it?

RINA: We wanted to say to cherish the present because everything has an ending, and that this moment right now is shining. When I was writing the lyrics, HARUNA said, "This is what SCANDAL truly perceives as 'eternal,' isn't it?", and I thought that was exactly the case. We truly don't know for how long the band will be around. Things might suddenly end one day. But that's exactly why the four of us want to keep playing music for as long as time allows. That's exactly why we're constantly wishing to "make this moment last eternally."

Topics tagged under scandal_eternal on SCANDAL HEAVEN O3kF7Q8

──This song has a looping feeling in the melody and composition, and it gives the impression that the uplifting feeling of dance music becomes stronger and stronger as it progresses. It really feels nice, which is why you can listen to it eternally.

RINA: That makes me happy to hear! That's exactly the image we had of it. I really like The Chainsmokers 's sound, and we all made the sound first by talking about where that comfort lies. That's why I also included the sound from my 808 (Roland TR-808 vintage drum machine) that I wanted to put into the a2 , and this time I was very conscious of making it the sound comfortable to listen to alongside hit Western music songs on subscription services.

MAMI: Starting from making the demo, I wanted to write a song that could lift your spirits. I wanted to take a different approach from the songs that are popular at so-called festivals, which are fast four-on-the-floor songs like what we've previously done. It'd make me happy if can move your body comfortably while feeling like the world's expanding during the chorus.




The inside of the car instantly turned into a club


──The B-side is a remix of "eternal" by TOWA TEI .

Topics tagged under scandal_eternal on SCANDAL HEAVEN EsZryxR

TOMOMI: I've been acquainted with TEI via the party event "records." I really like TEI as a DJ, and since I've been a listener of his from the start, I wanted to do something together one day. Since we decided to release eternal on vinyl, we decided to put a remix of the song as the B-side and ask TEI to do it.



──It is the best TEI-like remix.

MAMI: It's so awesome!

HARUNA: Everyone shrieked the moment we listened to it (laughs).

RINA: We all listened to it in the car. It was so cool and exciting.

TOMOMI: It was like the inside of the car instantly turned into a club (laughs).

RINA: We hope you enjoy the remix since it's a completely different listening experience from the original track.

The beginning of their 15th anniversary year


──Starting with this work, is SCANDAL likely to dash through their 15th anniversary year?

HARUNA: That's right. But it's hard for us to just say we're really looking forward to it all since we still don't know what'll happen. However, we'd be happy if we can materialize everything we're currently thinking about, and because we have a lot of things to think about after our 15th anniversary, we'd like to make a bunch of things for that.

MAMI: We're also making sure to continue producing songs.

RINA: Yeah. We're working hard to complete an album.



──First, you'd like fans to participate in the "VOTE YOUR BEST SONG" song popularity poll that kicked off recently.

HARUNA: Yes. You can vote once per day so I think we'll get a lot of votes. So far, it's looking like the results will vary considerably.

MAMI: There have already been some surprises that have made us go, "Eh, that song?" We also have no idea what the results will be like (laughs).

TOMOMI: Since the members are voting every day, we'd like for you guys to take part too.



──Also, you'll be holding your 15th anniversary concert "INVITATION" on August 21st at Osaka-Jo Hall. This will be your first concert at the venue in seven years.

TOMOMI: That much time has passed already?

RINA: It's been a really long time (laughs). We'll be zipping towards it, and we want to fully enjoy our first time back at OJH in forever with everyone.

Lyrics: RINA ~ Music: MAMI ~ Arrangement: Satori Shiraishi

Kaze ni yureru wa

怖くてもまた鍵を開けてく
わたしの姿をみててよ

English Translation

I wanted to see
A sea of daisies swaying in the wind
I looked to the sky
On the brink of rain and said
"Let's go now."

Emitting a dazzling light
A shower of love pours down
Please, set your heart free
Reach for a gentle world

Why is it
That my pain and joy became one?
Even if I'm scared, I'll unlock this door again
Watch me do it

Watch me

Emitting a dazzling light
A shower of love pours down
Please, set your heart free
Towards a gentle world

Emitting a dazzling light
There's a love that pours down
Please, set your heart free
Reach for a gentle world

Hey, make this moment last eternally
Make this moment last eternally
Make this moment last eternally
Make this moment last eternally
Make this moment last eternally
Make this moment last eternally

HARUNA on J-WAVE's "GROOVE LINE" radio program - February 25th

Topics tagged under scandal_eternal on SCANDAL HEAVEN AwHmf2Z




Listen to the radio rip of "eternal" here:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iWRB6wVS3qI


•HARU is making a remote appearance from her own home. She says she's a little unsure of being able to get a rapport going with Piston (the program's DJ) in this way. He says that's his line and he's the one that's unsure, which makes HARU laugh.

•Piston then asks HARU if the band has done fan-related online events conducted remotely. She asks if he means ones done via social media (like Instagram Lives), and he says that it doesn't have to include ones where they perform/sing live. She says that they did do some during the lockdowns. He asks her how it felt to basically show your home to the public. She says that it does make her feel a little shy since it's not how fans usually see her, which is on stage during a concert. He asks if "HARUNA of SCANDAL" when on the stage is different from how HARU is normally. She says yes and that it did make her feel a little shy at first, but that side of her is pretty much the only thing she's outwardly shown in the past year. He says that it's kind of hard to tell if that's a good thing or not. She laughs and says that, in a good way, those dual sides to her kind of faded away. He jokingly says for her to show the contents of her refrigerator, and she laughs and says she's afraid not.

•Piston mentions how the promo pictures for "eternal" made him think that the band's showing off their more mature side--it's basically radiating from the pictures. HARU laughs and he says that it surprised him when he thought about how the band started off wearing school uniforms. They also say something about natto --to me, it sounds like HARU misheard what Piston said. I think he said "nattoku" = "to understand," but it seems like HARU misheard and thought he said "natto," which makes her go, "I love natto!" He also thanks HARU for choosing GROOVE LINE to premiere "eternal" on.

•They then talk about "eternal." HARU says that they made this song with their 15th anniversary in mind, and that the word "eternal" kind of gives off a fantasy vibe, but what the band considers "eternal" is living life after knowing that things to do come to an end, whether that's life itself or the life of the band. The message they put into the song is that because things come to an end that you can live your life to the fullest in the present. Piston then mentions the remixed version that will be done by artist/DJ TOWA TEI . HARU says that TOMO has had the chance to DJ often with him, so they decided to ask him to do a remix.

•Next, they talk about the different editions of the single such as the vinyl, CD+t-shirt combo, and cassette tape. Piston seems to be the most surprised about the cassette edition and says that releasing these editions are quite anachronistic. HARU says that since this a milestone year for them, they thought it'd be nice to make it more festive by releasing physical editions such as these. Piston reconfirms with HARU that it's the band's 15th anniversary, which she says yes to, and he says that 15 years ago the more popular music format was MiniDisc . HARU agrees and says that she was part of the MiniDisc generation, but people aren't really listening to that these days. Piston laughs and says that it's the same for cassettes, but HARU says that cassettes are coming back into fashion right now and that she has some cassettes right now. Piston asks what she listens to on cassettes, and she says that she's started to collect cassettes from K-Pop groups since some groups are starting to come out with them now. He mentions that they sell a lot of cassettes at parking areas off expressways in Japan. HARU seems to know about this and goes, "Ones for karaoke, right?" He laughs and says yes, and that she might start adding those kinds of tapes to her collection, which she laughs at.

•After "eternal" is aired, Piston says that the song sounds like it would perfect as background music for a stylish female vlogger's videos to show off a stylish life. HARU laughs and agrees, saying that this song was actually made with the aim of sounding like music that you'd usually listen to everyday such as on the radio or streaming services. Piston says that it sounds a little different from the usual upbeat SCANDAL songs and also asks her about the end lyrics ("Kono shunkan eien ni shite" = "Make this moment last eternally"). He asks her what moment is that that they're singing about, and goes, "That's a difficult question, isn't it?!" HARU laughs and says that the moment is "right now," and then goes, "Well, rather than right now, it's more like the entire time you're alive." Piston also mentions that he's doing his best more than usual for this appearance (since HARU's appearing remotely rather than in person). HARU says that it's going well, and that it's fun that it's like they're talking on the phone. He jokes and says that she can't throw a punch at him since they're not face-to-face. She laughs and says that he's acting nicer than he usually does. He says that fundamentally he pretends to be absurd but is actually very level-headed.

•Next, they talk about SCANDAL's upcoming/current happenings such as the monthly "her Diary" documentaries released on YouTube (he jokingly asks HARU if there are any scenes of them eating natto; HARU laughs and says no), the song popularity contest, the upcoming fan club tour in April, and the upcoming 15th anniversary concert in August. HARU says that she hopes they'll be able to safely hold the fan club tour. Piston thinks that things will be okay to hold the concert in August and reconfirms that this is another important concert to be held at Osaka-Jo Hall. HARU says yes, but it's been a while since they last played there. He goes, "Don't you guys always play in Osaka for commemorative events?" HARU says yes, and that they had played outdoors in Osaka for their 10th anniversary. He says that he can't even imagine what the situation with everything will be like, given that August quite a few months away. He also says that it'll be bad if some things still can't be done normally at that point, so he hopes that everyone does their best with continuing to help stop the spread.

•Piston says that despite the circumstances, SCANDAL's still making sure to put things out for their fans. HARU says that they're very happy they're celebrating their 15th anniversary, and although no one knows how long this pandemic will last, they want to do their best amidst everything going on and do their best to have fun with their fans. Piston says that he thinks they probably feel a sense of loss by not getting to have fun with the fans like they normally do, which HARU very much agrees with and says that they very clearly understand how much they were loved by playing concerts. Piston thinks that what they're feeling will be a basis for what's next for the band. HARU agrees and says that it really touched them deeply that they're where they are right now thanks to the fans. As they close out the segment, Piston says that they'll end it by eating natto on YouTube, and that at the end he'll be punched. HARU laughs and jokes that one day it might come to that, but then says that that won't happen.

Here's my translation of the lyrics that were sung:

A dazzling light pours down
Like a shower of love
Please unravel my heart
Touch the gentle world
Hey, make this moment last eternally
