    Atsu Mizuno

    “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!”

     

     

    POPREQ

    “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!”
