Take a Look at DIV's "Retreamo" PV

Many of you know that today, DIV released their 4th single, 「 ゴールデンキネマ劇場」(GOLDEN KINEMA Gekijou), a couple days ago on July 17. On the same day, the full PV from the single was put up on Danger Crue Record’s official Youtube channel for your viewing pleasures!

In the video description for the PV, there’s a tidbit that says “A New Genre is Born: ‘Retreamo (Retro + Screamo)’!!”

There’s a release interview on DIV’s OHP about the new single, so take a look at a few questions about the “retreamo” summer release, translated our very own translating staff member Luna.

–You released “Golden Kinema Gekijou” on the 17th of July. What kind of song did you want to make it out to be?

CHISA: Well, we released it in the summer, so we thought about many ways to give it a summer feel. Last’s year’s “Natsu no Yukue” had a pretty straightforward summer feel to it, so we were wondering if there were other ways to convey the same idea of “summer.” So as we thought about it things like “ghost stories” and “horror themes” came up, and the song ended up reflecting that.
satoshi: Until now we have always chosen relatively easy songs to listen to as our title songs, but this time I think you can see a much darker side of DIV.
CHISA: Yah, it’s really different from “TASTE OF LIFE,” which we released in April. I think there’s a pretty big gap between those two musical styles.

–The title song “Golden Kinema Gekijou” was written and composed by CHISA, wasn’t it?

CHISA: I like movies, but I wanted it to turn out more like the opening theme of a TV series, something that gives you a nostalgic feeling when you listen to it. Now only the intro for the song gives off a jazzy atmosphere, but actually when I made the demo the whole song was like that. I didn’t want to go as far as making it a ballad, but I wanted to give it a mellow feel.
Shogo: That’s right. We didn’t want to make it sound aggressive. We wanted it to be refreshing.
Chobi: Yah, it sounded really elaborate. The demo itself had already been completed a while back.
CHISA: I showed that demo to Shogo, and I thought it would be a good idea to mix in his special emo feel to the jazz component of the song.
Shogo: We also tried things like adding in a melo-ska feel to it too. It started turning from an aggressive melody to a nicer and calmer one.
satoshi: That’s why this song has “retro” and “screamo” components to it, making it “retreamo.” I think it’s an interesting and simple song, but it’s still cool.
CHISA: Also, as far as the mix of retro and emo go, both of them make you feel sorrowful, so those two genres matched unexpectedly well and made the song even more interesting.

How interesting! It seems like there are quite a few elements weaved into the concept of “retreamo.”
