Bursting into the scene with a surprise attack
TRA TRA TRA will set out on their one-man tour in November. With their 2nd one-man at Shibuya REX as the tour final, and a goal to surpass their first one-man, they continue their onslaught of surprise attacks. We asked the band some simple questions… From their passion as a band to their practical jokes on each other, it is clear that they are a formidable group that won’t be easy to beat.
―TRA TRA TRA officially began activities as of January last year. From your name to your appearance, this band’s concept is unimaginably deep.
Omi: You can’t stand out by having a muddled world view or by being flashy so we just wanted to create a band that would be best seen live. It’s not just in how we present ourselves, but also in our music sense and the power of our performances. More than anything, we want to attack with an aggressive performance. We chose our band name with that in mind.
―Just between us… When this publication was decided, I thought, “Finally a kira kira band will make an appearance!” But… I have come to realize that you can’t judge a person on how they look (laughs).
Omi: Did we come across as kira kira (laughs)! We didn’t intend for that at all. I’ve never liked copying others so since we do things our own way no matter what it is, I think you can’t really put us into any category.
Ryo: We don’t really think about being kira kira or kote kote. If I had to describe us with a sound, it’d probably be gori gori.*
