Moro: Hi there, I'm going to give you some explanations on our 3rd album "Hello World".
#1: Hello World + Kagome Kagome
Kagome Kagome is a Japanese children play song that already existed before 1751 by unknown composer. This is my arrangement & I changed the melody little bit. I was originally wanting it to sound like "Come Together" by Beatles, but after adding the kitchen instruments, it started to sound different.
#2: I Wanna Get High With You
First of all, we don’t do any drugs! I heard some songs with similar lyrics on the radio & thought it could be interesting to use it. The music is influenced by early The Roots & my recent discovery of lo-fi hip hop.
#3: Cool Grandma
We love cool grandma & wanna be cool grandmas! I made this lyrics imagining Pixy would like it as her grandma is a super cool person.
#4: Momo-chan’s Going to the Trader Joe’s
A song made by Pixy. Pixy sang this song hoping if I could go to Trader Joe’s when we didn’t have any food at home. In fact, I ended up going there by myself on that day.
A love song from the point of view of a ghost. In Japan, there is a saying that when someone dies, the ghost will stay with you for 49 days and disappear after that.
#6: Oppai Is Everywhere
I went to Go Topless March in New York City & was shocked to see it was mostly supported by men. I got inspired by the event & made this song.
#7: Bass Player
I’m a bass player & this song is from my own experience...
#8: Living with Ojisan
Sometimes, I feel that Pixy is actually a middle-aged man (Ojisan) inside & this is a song about it.
To be honest, I'm really bad at making lyrics & I was just repeating one of Pixy's nickname "Pipitacchi" since I couldn't think of any other lyrics. In the beginning, Pixy says in Chinese “Believe in Pipi then you will have an eternal life”.
#10: Little Gay Boy
Another song made by Pixy about little gay boy.
#11: Wanna Be a Manly Man
A song that I try to be a manly man to impress Pixy & fail badly.
#12: What Is the Meaning of This?
A song I made in my dream & Pixy added lyrics. I saw Japanese artist Tondabayashi Ran's collage work & thought it could be fun to do it in music as well. My old demo has been cut, stretched, reversed & pitch shifted, and then I placed them into the song arrangement.
#13: I’m Waiting for You
Kinda sad song that I made when Pixy was away.
#14: My Instagram Is Flooded by Kitties
All the suggestion on my instagram are kitties. I don't know why.
