チャットモンチー、世武裕子らサポート・メンバーと曲ごとに異なる編成でピアノ・ポップやエレポップなどにもアプローチした新作

2015.06.11

2ピースでの前作から一転、常岡章世武裕子らのサポート・メンバーたちと、曲ごとに異なる編成で制作。シンセやピアノ、パーカッションも交え、ピアノ・ポップやエレポップなどにもアプローチ。作家の西加奈子が詞を提供した“例えば、”もあり、バンドとしての〈拡張〉がテーマのようだ。もちろんメロディーと詞の浸透力はずば抜けているし、ドキリとさせる“隣の女”など、福岡晃子のリリックもますます冴えてきた。

 

[English Translation]
CHATMONCHY  “Kyomei (meaning Resonance)

The female pop/rock duo CHATMONCHY drastically changed from the last album in which they were a two-piece band and played all the instruments by themselves; this time, they welcomed supporting members to the production, such as Akira Tsuneoka (a drummer known as ex-member of the legendary punk band Hi-STANDARD) and Hiroko Sebu (a singer-songwriter whose tunes were praised by Antoine Duhamel). CHATMONCHY arranged each track in a different way, even approaching genres like piano-pop and electro-pop by adding synthesizer, piano, and percussion. Furthermore, they had Kanako Nishi, a novelist, as the lyricist of “Tatoeba, (meaning For Example,)” so the theme of the album seems to be an ‘expansion’ as a band. Of course, the melodies and lyrics exceptionally infiltrate into the whole piece as usual. Plus, lyrics by Akiko Fukuoka, such as “Tonari no Onna (meaning Girl Next Door,)” a tune that would make one startle, are even lucid.
