J-tunes daily: SCANDAL - YOUR SONG

Song of the day 

Scandal (stylised as SCANDAL) is an all-female Japanese rock band from Osaka. Formed in August 2006 by four high school girls, the band consists of Haruna Ono (lead vocals, secondary guitarist), Mami Sasazaki (lead guitarist, secondary vocals), Tomomi Ogawa (bassist, lead vocals) and Rina Suzuki (drummer, keyboardist, guitarist, secondary vocals). SCANDAL has performed the theme songs a wide variety anime, including "Shōjo S" and "Harukaze" for "Bleach" and "Shunkan Sentimental" for Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood. Scandal has built a considerable international fanbase with their numerous overseas performances.

Their song "YOUR SONG" was used as the closing theme to "J-MELO" from June to November 2014. The popular English-speaking Japanese music show asked viewers what words and phrases are most special to them. Their answers then inspired the all-girl rock band SCANDAL to create this song.

Inspired by the special phrases close to the hearts of Japanese music fans from around the world. "YOUR SONG" is a punchy punk rock song with cool sounds and plenty of heart, packed to the brim with tuneful sounds of electric guitar, bold bass and warm drum beats.

The songs lyrics are upbeat and inspirational, carrying with them a powerful and optimistic message. Instrumentally, the rich, full accompaniment matches perfectly alongside the diverse and confident vocal track, whilst each members unique singing styles and vocal melody offers up a wide, varied range of sounds, from the strong and heartfelt to the warm and attractive. Each members vocals combine together beautifully, making for a truly powerful and uplifting chorus, topped off by a hard hitting and punchy guitar solo. With some gripping and diverse shifts in dynamic thrown in for good measure, "YOUR SONG" is a fun loving, feel good rock song bursting to the brim with genuine emotion and pure punk spirit.
