  • Yojiro Noda Of RADWIMPS’ New Song ‘Neko Jarashi’ Gets Used in Japanese Commercial

    16.March.2020 | MUSIC

    Yojiro Noda, the lead singer and songwriter of Japanese rock band RADWIMPS, has written a new song entitled Neko Jarashi for a television commercial in Japan.

    The commercial in question is for Kirin’s “Gogo no Kocha” (Afternoon Tea) brand of drinks, which is promoting a new theme beginning this month: “Happy Tea, Afternoon Tea.” Japanese actress Kyoko Fukada is the face of the brand’s new commercial, which promotes how there is happiness to be found in those casual moments in our everyday lives even if we do not notice them.

    The first in the series of new commercials for Kirin Gogo no Kocha shows how there are many moments of happiness felt when spending time with loved ones, like friends and family, during an ordinary day. Yojiro Noda’s new song, which he wrote for the commercial, too is themed on happiness, with its lyrics and gentle melody.which is a perfect fit for the commercial. Check it out below.

    Yojiro Noda said: “The strengths that humans get used to is something amazing. Both the good and bad. For our own reasons, we seem to love and treasure having the breakfast we are so used to, the voice of someone saying ‘I’m home,’ the route we take back going home. The trick to living a fun life in this world might not be being overambitious, but the ability to notice those little joyful moments. Another thing is the existence of our selves with whom we spend every day with. Before we know it, we realise we didn’t actually know what that meant, so we take notice and live our lives knowing it. The me that I don’t even know might still be hidden away. That’s what I wrote this song about.”

     

    He concludes: “I’m also currently doing band sessions and writing stuff together with the other RADWIMPS members. I hope you look forward to that too.”

  • ‘Rakuen’ Film Main Theme ‘Ichiru’ by RADWIMPS’ Yojiro Noda Feat. Mone Kamishiraishi Music Video Released

    30.September.2019 | MOVIE / MUSIC

    Rakuen (“The Promised Land”) is an upcoming film written and directed by Takahisa Zeze, who is known for his masterful work on the suspense mystery drama films 64: Part I and 64: Part II. Set for release on October 18 this year, the film is an adaptation of best-selling Japanese author Shuichi Yoshida’s short story of the same name. It will star Gō Ayano, Hana Sugisaki, Kōichi Satō, Akira Emoto, and Nijirō Murakami.

     

    It was revealed last month that film’s main theme Ichiru (“Thread of Hope”) was written, composed and produced by RADWIMPS frontman Yojiro Noda. He is joined by popular singer and actress Mone Kamishiraishi on vocals. Kamishiraishi provided the voice for Mitsuha Miyamizu in the 2016 hit anime film Your Name which RADWIMPS wrote the music for.

     

    A music video for the song has just been released. It has also been revealed that the song will be released as a digital single on October 14, 2019.

     

    The music video was directed by Takahisa Zeze and Atsushi Unno, the director and assistant director for Rakuen respectively. It was shot in July, with most of the filming taking place in Nagano where the story is set. Zeze expressed his wish for Kamishiraishi to feature in the background of the film itself in the music video. The video features iconic locations from the film, including the Y-shaped road―quiet possibly the most symbolic. The video features not only actual scenes from the film, but newly-shot scenes too made just for the music video.

     

    Speaking about the music video, Mone Kamishiraishi comments: “I was given the opportunity be part of the making of this music video with the Raken film team gathered together, including Zeze, the director. I am honoured to have been able to visit such iconic scenes from the film. It was a really memorable moment, and an experience I will keep for me with live.”

     

    She continues: “I listened to Ichiru a bunch of times while we shot the music video, but that feeling I had when I first heard it and my heart shook, and how moved I was when I first let my voice out to sing it, have gone unchanged. Yojiro [Noda] said, ‘I hope this song becomes a ray of light at the end of the film.’ I have always been able to feel that, from the lyrics to the power it holds and the music that pulls on your heartstrings.”

     

    She concludes her statement saying: “I believe this is a song that purifies the heart, like a cold breeze, even if you’re going through hard or unfair times. So listen to it on repeat and take that message from it. And I hope you enjoy watching the music video. We shot it with much love.”

    In Rakuen, a little girl is kidnapped along a Y-shaped road but the perpetrator isn’t caught. 12 years later, another girl is kidnapped along the same road. A man living close to the area of kidnappings lives together peacefully with his pet dog who is a coping mechanism to help forget his wife who passed away. He is pushed into deeper isolation after coming into disagreements with the locals in the area which causes him to lose his mind, leading to an incident nobody could have imagined. The truth to everything lies behind the two kidnappings and three peoples’ fates.
