キマグレン+吉川友=きっかレン誕生! カフェオーレ新CM発表会に参加

2人組音楽ユニット・キマグレンとソロアイドル・吉川友が、6月3日(月)に開催された「グリコ カフェオーレ × ユニバーサル ミュージック 2013 夏プロモーション合同発表会」・「カフェオーレ新CM発表会」にて、新ユニット「きっかレン」の結成を発表した。


昨年5周年イヤーを終え、「音霊 OTODAMA SEA STUDIO」運営10周年を迎える2014年に向け、女性ボーカルを迎えた楽曲を制作しようと新たな挑戦を考えていたキマグレン。そんな中で吉川友の歌声に出会った彼らは彼女にユニット結成をオファーし、吉川もキマグレンの楽曲が好きだったこともありこれを快諾。意気投合した彼らは晴れてユニットを結成するに至ったのである。さらに時を同じくし、カフェオーレのCMソングを歌唱してくれるアーティストを探していたグリコ乳業が彼らにオファー、こうして結成間もないきっかレンはカフェオーレのCMに出演することとなったのだ。

多くの報道陣が詰め掛けた発表会に登場したキマグレンの2人と吉川友。新ユニット結成について吉川は「キマグレンさんの曲が前から大好きだったので、今回のコラボはとても緊張しました。でも、一緒にお仕事をさせていただいてキマグレンさんも海もより大好きになりました」とコメント。また、吉川の印象について聞かれたISEKIは「明るく、ハキハキしていて、いつも元気で。いつ休んでるの? って思ってます」、KUREIは「彼女の歌声は、力強くてストレートで、とてもキレイな声をしているなと思いました」と答え、CMとMVの撮影中に吉川がISEKIからギターを習っていたというエピソードも紹介した。
この日、完成したばかりという「グリコ カフェオーレ」の新CMと、きっかレンの初コラボ曲「カフェオーレのうた」のMVが報道陣に向けて公開された。どちらの映像も実在する海の家が舞台となっており、6月下旬からキマグレンが運営する海の家がオープンするという話を聞いた吉川が「今年の夏はきっかレンの活動を頑張ることはもちろん、海の家でスタッフとしても働いてみたいです!」と言い出す一幕も。その提案に、KUREIが「じゃあ、ちゃんと面接も受けていただきたいと思います」と返すなど、3人の仲の良さを感じさせるやり取りに、会場からは絶えず笑いが沸き起こっていた。

発表会の最後には、新CM楽曲の「カフェオーレのうた」を初披露。ISEKIが「この曲のイメージを崩さないように進化させていきたい」と語った通り、曲中にラップが盛り込まれるなど、きっかレンによって生まれ変わった同曲の完成度と、初めてとは思えない息の合ったパフォーマンスに、集まった報道陣と関係者からは大きな拍手が贈られていた。

この「カフェオーレのうた」のMVは、<YouTube>にて公開中なのでチェックしよう。また、きっかレンのもうひとつのオリジナル曲「あいまいな関係」も「カフェオーレのうた」と同じく6月12日(水)から楽曲配信がスタートする。

「きっかレンも『グリコ カフェオーレ』も、夏に向けて頑張っていきたいので、よろしくお願いします!」と意気込みを語るきっかレン。この夏注目のユニットになることは間違いなさそうだ。

TAURANGA, NEW ZEALAND - OCTOBER 18:  Penguins swim in a clean pool after being washed of oil at the Tauranga Wastewater Treatment Wildlife Facility on October 18, 2011 in Tauranga, New Zealand. Salvage crews continue to pump oil off the ship in an effort to remove as much as possible before bad weather predicted for the evening threatens to break the vessel and release more oil into the sea. Over 300 tonnes of oil has leaked from Rena since it hit the reef on October 5.

LONDON, ENGLAND - JANUARY 04:  A penguin swims in its enclosure during a photocall to promote London Zoo's annual stock take of animals on January 4, 2012 in London, England. The zoo's stocktake takes place annually, and gives keepers a chance to check on the numbers of every one of the animals from stick insects and frogs to tigers and camels.

TAURANGA, NEW ZEALAND - OCTOBER 10: In this handout photo provided by Maritime New Zealand, an oil--covered penguin is cared for at a wildlife rehabilitation facility on October 10, 2011 in Tauranga, New Zealand. The 47,000 tonne Rena, a Liberan container vessel, struck a reef on Wednesday causing an oil leak that has spread over five kilometres. Authorities are preparing for the worst environmental disaster in New Zealand history should the vessel break up and spill 1,700 tonnes of fuel into the Bay of Plenty.

WELLINGTON, NEW ZEALAND - AUGUST 29:  The emperor penguin named "Happy Feet" stands in his container aboard NIWA's research vessel Tangaroa, at Burnham Wharf on August 29, 2011 in Wellington, New Zealand. The penguin was found at Peka Peka beach on the Kapiti Coast in June with concerns for his health. Wellington Zoo intervened and nursed the penguin back to good health. He will be released into the Southern Ocean, complete with GPS tracking device, from NIWA's research vessel four days into a month-long trip to the Campbell Islands, 700km south of New Zealand.

EDINBURGH, SCOTLAND - MARCH 01:  Gentoo penguins begin the breeding season at Edinburgh Zoo on March 1, 2011 in Edinburgh, Scotland. The zoo keepers have just installed the nest rings in the penguin enclosure. The male penguins will then collect pebbles and offer them to the females to fill nest rings with, this helps keep the eggs and chick up off the ground and is part of their courtship display.

EDINBURGH, SCOTLAND - JUNE 10:  Adult gentoo penguins keep an eye on their newly born chick at Edinburgh Zoo on June 10, 2011 in Edinburgh, Scotland. The gentoo chicks which started hatching in early May are looked after by both parents who regurgitate part digested food. When the chicks are hungry they peck the beaks of their parents to signal feeding time.
