supercell feature (Part 3: Sayonara Memories)

Sayonara Memories (さよならメモリーズ – Sayonara Memorizu) is supercell’s follow up to Kimi no Shiranai Monogatari, acting as their second single to be released. The A-Side was apparently rumoured to feature as the theme song for the manga to live-action movie adaption of ソラニン (Solanin). However these rumors proved to be more than a false blip on the radar as it was mere confusion among certain people due to the coincidence that Takahiro Miki (Director of Sayonara Memories PV) also directed the live-action Solanin. In fact the second single, Sayonara Memories has no association with any external media of any sort. Sayonara Memories is supercell’s first true professional single written in the essence of their style for fans. The A-Side again provides that upbeat track filled with a band ensemble, while the B-Side provides fans a new twist in their music, dipping their toes into the style of jazz, but only ever so slightly. Finally, the third track provides supercell fans with a sweet acoustic ballad. The single was released in February 10th, 2010. Read more »
