2016 is almost over. What kind of year has this year been for Silent Siren? Read on for a really sincere answer from the two girls!
Q. Looking back over this past year, what kind of a year has 2016 been to you?
Hinanchu: This year a lot of things have become very clear to me. For example, even in my private life, things that I keep in my house are now only the bare essentials. I’ve stopped buying things that I don’t really need, like clothes and shoes. Similarly with work, I used to want to do everything, but after taking a better look at things, I realized that we only need a limited amount. And since that has become clear for me, this year has been a year for good decluttering.
Q. Tell us about one of your biggest memories of 2016.
Suu: That would be our show at Yokohama Arena. That live performance left me feeling like ‘We can do more!’. It was a very important show for Sai-sai.
Also, this year I took on a challenge of going to an uninhabited island and tried to live completely self-sufficiently, but it was actually really tough. My eyes were opened to so many things that we don’t notice because we live in such a convenient society, like just how hard it is to start a fire, or how tough it can be to find food. And while it was pretty severe, there were those moments like when the sun was going down and I looked out over the horizon on the ocean and thought to myself ‘the world is actually round’ and lots of other moments that moved me. It was a valuable life experience that changed my outlook on the world.
Q. If you had one month’s holiday, what would you do?
Hinanchu: I’d like to go to Hawaii and just take it easy.
Q. Can you give us some pointers on singing Sai-sai’s songs at karaoke?
Suu: Most Sai-sai songs are in a very high key, so try dropping it half a key, and find a level that suits you and is easy to sing. And get excited and enjoy the song as you sing!
Q. What is your goal for 2017?
Hinanchu: My motto is to be true to myself. I am originally a negative kind of person, so I’m not going to go out of my way trying to achieve something, rather, I want to prioritize just being myself. I want 2017 to be a year of simplicity, and a year that I can live as I please.
Suu: I want to become more famous! Honestly, we are still not up there with the big names. I will give my all to sharing Sai-sai’s music with more and more people!
The Sai-sai who have powered through 2016, what will they show us next?
Don’t take your eyes off these girls in 2017!
