CRUNCH – Blue

CRUNCH - Blue

CRUNCH is a three-piece all-female outfit from Nagoya, Japan. They are often referred to as post-punk / new wave group, but the composer, guitarist and singer Noriyo says that they are also inspired by Burt Bacharach and all the music of the good old days.
Noriyo has been listening to emerging artists on beehype as well, which she finds inspiring too. And one of Japanese artists already presented on beehype, Masahiro Araki from Remigai, mixed CRUNCH’s new single. In “Blue”, crystalline guitar and glockenspiel drenched in reverb create a great atmosphere.

Noriyo explained what was on her mind when she was writing this song:
“Blue is about a feeling I had in my childhood. I was at home, no adults. I was free but lonely, somehow happy. In those days, I didn’t know where I was. The world seemed impersonal to me. When I looked outside at night, I could see many lights from houses. So many people with different lives, different thoughts. I felt strange. At that time, I was nowhere.”
These days, our society is gets more and more complicated to adjust. To commit to this world is especially difficult when you are young. I find this song’s theme universal.

Lyric

I have been searching something in all my life, with hollow in my mind.
I would be swallowed by the deepest blue as soon as looking into it

I always pretend to be not interested in, even if I expected to. apart from touch by anyone.
Are you kidding? Actually you are so wired.

It is so free as lonesome, beacuse I can decide anything.
I have nostalgia for inconvenience caused by being with someone together.

In the city of night where many lights are together
I used to be tearing at somewhere, it blinked, It’s translucent days.

I was stranger there, Nothing left but to go home and sleep.
It is same about a future I hope or a future you won’t hope.

It is so free as lonesome, beacuse I can decide anything.
I have nostalgia for inconvenience caused by being with someone together.

It is so free as lonesome, this feeling with transparency.
I was waiting in sun shower, but that guys were in sunlight.
