tricot 2nd Full Album “A N D”
Self Track Review by Motoko “Motifour” Kida *日本語はこちら
<1. Noradrenaline >
A very simple song that was composed by the backslash against the fact we have been composing the complex songs. The drum intro is a key point.
Vocal chorus in the chorus of the song was done from the image of audience. I played a playful guitar phrase with a feeling of the weakness.
Challenged a new playing style. I like the chords in the outro of the song.
<4. Colorless Aquarium>
The essence of the song is the interaction of each rhythm of guitar, bass and drums. The rhythm of the guitar is slightly different from the other instruments.
<5. Kobe Number>
I struggled on the composition of the chords. It’s a mysterious song in which only chords are changing while melody and rhythm are not changing.
We made this song with the chords that I wanted to use before we had formed tricot. This is the oldest song in this album. We have been playing it since our first show.
<7. Pieeen A N D ver.>
We asked H ZETT M to add the piano on the existing track. It was hard for me to choose only one take because he played many styles and all of them sounded really great. I kind of wish if you could listen to them all.
We composed this song starting from the bass riff. Tender arpeggio. The drum phrases are from the mix of what Ikkyu came up with and what I made by playing the actual drums.
We made this song while imagining that we dance a samba with you all at our show. We recorded a samba part in the middle of the song with some percussion in the mood of the carnival.
We recorded its track when Kazutaka Komaki was in the band. I recorded a several fuzz guitar sounds in one part.
This phrase was originally a little bit faster, but we wanted to include a slow-tempo song in the album. So we tried to compose it playing slower. The chords are changing polyrhythmically.
A song we composed with three of us after the drummer left the band. I composed this song mainly from the chords because I like them.
