Virtual Unit Tacitly to Participate in YouTube Music Weekend Vol.4
Virtual duo Tacitly from NTT Docomo’s ‘Live Animation Heart X Algorhythm’ will be one of twelve participating VTubers appearing at YouTube Music Weekend Vol.4! This online event will take place from December 3 until December 5, and will feature a number of live performances to enjoy. The duo will also perform their new song Yume wo Mitte Ikiteiru for the first time on YouTube. Tacitly will appear on December 4 from 26:30 to 27:00 JST, so don’t miss it!
“My name is Atsu Mizuno, and I wrote the lyrics and composed the arrangement for Tacitly’s new song! I wanted to match the powerful yet delicate voices of the two members of the group and the incredible video by POPREQ. This time, I wrote about my own struggles with a weak heart and the wonderful friends that helped me become stronger. People can’t achieve anything when they are alone, and this song made me want to treasure my friends who believe in me so much. The last part is my favorite, so be sure to check it out. Thank you so much!”
“I’m POPREQ from Hurray! I directed the new music video.
When I heard Atsu Mizuno’s song, I envisioned the story she was telling and placed the members of Tacitly within it. It’s the story of two people living on the edge of a crowded city thinking that no one will ever understand them, until one day, they meet.
If we could only understand each other’s loneliness, beliefs, and way of life…
That’s what I was thinking about when I worked on this video.
I hope you enjoy it!”

04.November.2021 | MUSIC
Japanese FM radio station J-WAVE (81.3 FM) has announced its fifth live event coming to Zepp DiverCity in Tokyo. The station’s popular late-night program SPARK takes place from Monday to Thursday at 24:00-25:00 each week and is the inspiration for these incredible performances. This time, Sayaka Yamamoto and SHE’S will both be taking the stage on December 9, 2021.
Sayaka Yamamoto serves as SPARK’s MC each Monday. Piano-rock band SHE’S collaborated with the singer on her song oasis released in February, with vocalist and keyboard player Ryouma Inoue producing the track and SHE’S arranging and performing the music.
I’ve worked with SHE’S musically in the past, and I’m so excited to work with them again like this. It will also be the first time for me to perform against an entire band alone, so I’m also super nervous. I’ll do my best to put on a great show!
After arranging and producing the song oasis for Yamamoto, she invited us to see her solo concert. I remember getting goosebumps because she had evolved so much, and she was so incredibly cool. I can’t wait to see what kind of live show this will turn out to be, and I hope we can sing something together!
