When you entered into creating the song and arranging it what were you thinking in regards to the form of the bands next sound?
Toshiya: Around January of this year (2013) we talked about it together and putting it simply, decided to try making the song in a simple way. Although even saying the song’s flow and riffs will be simple, I think there’s still many things (in the song) but we talked about wanting to as a whole make something with parts a bit more simple and frank. We like constructing and we’ve been making constructed arrangements but above being based on that it’s something that has broken through it. It’s hard to say but I wanted to make something that doesn’t lose it’s purity. And I also felt that when constructing, the part that is the core of the song becomes dim. We pile up ornaments but I wanted to see how it would turn out if we set out on creating something that has a bit more coherency and simpleness. When I tried it in reality it was difficult. Because I like constructing there were parts that I was unsatisfied with. I was aiming for a simple direction but then I say such things… (laughs)
