Hello, this is Tak from Imari Tones.
We just finished a gig, that was actually the first gig in nearly 6 months.
The gig was great and we did a good performance. Everything was awesome.
(Tak also played a gig with "Soul of Faith" on May 3rd, and he has acoustic gig coming up on May 21st.)
Today I want to talk a little bit about our new video "Unlimit".
As you can see, we are making a lot of "homemade music video" kind of things.
This is the newest one, and this song is from our new album "Revive The World", which will be released later this year. This song "Unlimit" will be the first track of the album. We've been playing this song live since 2013 and it's definitely our favorite song.
This is a song about the power of prayer. A song about how we should not set a limit to our prayers. Because even though we are weak and powerless, there is nothing impossible for God. I'm not sure if the word "Unlimit" is a correct English (haha...) but this is a powerful advocation of ours.
Also another theme of this song/video is, "Hikikomori".
It's something like, alienation? Like, alienation from society, alienation from the world.
There is a huge distance, or huge gap between you and the world. It's really depressing and scary. Yet you try to reach out, gather all the courage and take one step outside the door.
So, it's a song about an introverted boy who's trying to take a step outside his door. Does it make sense?
We tried to make this video with some "Japanese flavor".
We did some Japanese calligraphy stuff and also we did some "Shogi" thing.
If you don't know, Shogi is a Japanese chess game. (Although it's much complicated than chess.)
I hope you can feel the local vibe of Japan.
This is already 4th music video we made this year.
We are still just an unknown band from Japan and our YouTube views are not so big. But recently we are getting more and more views and it makes us very happy. (Total views of our YouTube channel soon will reach 100,000)
So thank you very much.
Please check our YouTube channel and check other music videos as well, if you haven't already.
Thank you very much!
God bless you all!
