~SCANDAL’s 「Pride」, seifuku♥ fashion tips & collaboration and which band member is your favorite?

SCANDAL♥

SCANDAL "Pride" (back cover scan)

SCANDAL "Pride" first press single SCANDAL’s Tomomi says it best when describing seifuku making girls look 5x’s cuter!! And just as AKB48’s Tomochin has collaborated with CONOMi now SCANDAL too has set up a collaboration page @ Cdjapan where you can see their personal fashion choices and styles which they recommend to anyone yes~! wanting to look 5x’s cuter~♥! (Link is just a bit below)

SCANDAL’s latest single “Pride” showcases the ending theme song for the anime “Star Driver” and each band member continues to impress with their individual musical contributions to each song including both music composition as well as lyric writing~ and here Tomomi, Mami and Rina all active with Rina composing both the lyrics and music for the second coupling with track “Emotion.” In a rather short period of time SCANDAL has indeed forged their very own aura of style and “sound” giving whether it be a cover song or original, a most unique and easily recognizable essence of energetic girl~rock♥. From the driving force of “Pride” to the bouncy~* notes of “CUTE!” (most appropriately named!!!) to those now trademark guitar harmonies leading into Rina’s “Emotion”…..there’s absolutely nothing to not love about this single in entirety. One aspect which continues to attract me so much to SCANDAL is how they seamlessly work lead and background vocals between each girl into their songs and with each having a most unique vocal it adds so much character and personality to their music and allows for an array of approaches and in a real sense makes individual songs a bit more raspy, aggressive, sultry and cute~♥ which in turn gives even their lyrics that much more of a guided impact for the listener  =). Hmm…and you do know whom has the cutest~♥ voice in the band whenever it’s called for ne~? (*´∀`)っ♥!

SCANDAL’s “Pride” can be ordered here @ Cdjapan.

SCANDAL members' profile

They’re all so cute♥!! so deciding on a favorite member equals lots of difficulty (;゜□゜)!!、..but today I’ve narrowed (funny there’s only four girls…(^q^)! ) it down to either Haruna or Mami both of whom can melt me albeit in much different ways!! Okay but like if I were forced to choose (just choose already (。p_q)!!!!)...my favorite♥ SCANDAL girl would be Mami~o(*´∀`)o゛♥。I think there are obvious reasons but there are also some secret thoughts too that I’ll keep to myself lol (。ーωー。)。I’m thinking though that after watching their upcoming concert DVD release my thoughts here may change a little….?? I think it’s being released next month =)!

If you love SCANDAL too and have a favorite girl in the group please share~♥ in the poll below =):

        • U~n…..but the duo vocals of Mami and Haruna so ♥!!!…and I guess typically the guitarists do sing the lead lol oh wait that’s stretching it xD!!! as there are lead vocal bassists and even drummer sing the lead too sometimes but just not as often :P. I’m guessing you voted Rina as your favorite member? I loooove Mami~♥ the most so far but Haruna is awesome too!!..both so cute and you~know~who’s cutesy vocals yes ♥! ♥! ♥!!

          Oh I haven’t ordered any live DVD before from SCANDAL (._.;)….so their upcoming concert release will be my first♥…..for me it’s like being excited in the same sense as with a Hirano♥Aya concert DVD. Doki~doki~ ^ ^!!

            yah i got Rina, but stay thinking about Tomomi too haha, and looking there tomomi get low votes hehe
            well i like the 4 members hehe, the 4 are cute and beauty, my 2 favs is Rina and Tomomi 😛
            oh to u list Rina singing search on youtube, the live of the song Tokyo, all the 4 members get a piece of the lead and sing alone, is really good 😛

            oh try downloading or watching in youtube the 2009 one :p~~
            u order Hirano concert too ?? her is a good singer and actress ^^

            • Ohhh still singing though =). U~n with drummers they’re typically back up only on vocals but there are still some lead parts too with some groups and it’s really impressive and maybe even more so on the drums than any other instrument to be able to sing and play well……like the drums are so physically demanding so too not sound you know too “bounced” on your vocals lol I don’t know how to quite say that but because they’re moving so much you’d totally expect their voices to be affected a lot like……I know! if you were out jogging and then tried to sing at the same time your feet hitting the ground would make your voice “bouncy” and out of the norm :P.

              Ohhhh we’re SCANDAL fan polar opposites….:O!! That’s so funny…..I pit Mami and Haruna against your Tomomi and Rina :P. I’m really excited about their upcoming concert DVD~♥!!!….u~n I’ll try searching for some clips from their earlier concert DVD =)……oh I was thinking about posting about Hirano Aya’s latest concert DVD but I never got the chance too (._.;). She’s soooooooo fun and amazing live!!!!! It’s like she herself is the show~* and then it’s like oh there’s music and a band too :P! Love her!!!

    • It’s a perfect contrast with her voice being so much higher + she gets cute points for that =)! The breathing part for sure in between lines and if you’re running on stage or even with all of the dance choreography the timing’s most difficult.

      A~h I haven’t gotten to see any fan interaction with SCANDAL just yet…..hmm I’m into the serious girls :P.

      Oh I think you’re confusing Hirano Aya with Ueto Aya?

                • There’s no indication of a booklet but I’m still hopeful there will be one with liner notes and photos =). It was just released on the 16th and happily it’s in transit now but could be delayed with the fuel shortages and everything happening in Japan but it’s absolutely nothing to complain about so I’m most patient and actually surprised they were able to ship so soon.

                  That could happen!! Only I have no photoshop to create nice banners =( so it’d take the perfect SCANDAL image to be able to crop it okay =).

                      Changed the banner to “ALOHA” and I’ll keep it at least through the upcoming donation auctions which I’ll link here. Just want to do as much as I can to help Japan recover.
