Stylise as Sakanaction, are a Japanese rock band from Sapporo, Hokkaido, Japan. Their music is a fusion of alternative rock, electronic, pop, and new wave styles, and is thus difficult to classify under one category. The band consists of five members: Ichiro Yamaguchi, Motoharu Iwadera, Ami Kusakari, Emi Okazaki, and Keiichi Ejima. The name Sakanaction is portmanteau of sakana and action. In the band's own words, their name reflects wish to act quickly and lightly, like fish in water, without fearing changes in the music scene. They are enjoying increasing popularity, having hit mainstream success with their records consistently achieving positions within the Top 10 on Japan's Oricon charts. Sakanaction is the sixth studio album by Japanese band Sakanaction, released on March 13 2013. Primarily created in recording sessions that began in September 2012 and lasted approximately four months, album was recorded at the home of the band's vocalist and songwriter, Ichiro Yamaguchi. In order to reach an audience, bands challenge themselves by creating music for commercial tie-ups and television dramas. Prior to the album, band released three singles: two acting as theme songs for Japanese television dramas and another used in a commercial campaign for design school Mode Gakuen. Theming album is around the concept of Mobius strip, band separate their music into two different types: external-facing songs meant for wide audience, and internal-facing, created as a reflection of their personal musical tastes. The Theme represents the band's efforts in attempting to bridge the gap between these two song types. Yamaguchi classified each song on the album as either external or internal, except for the album's preceding single music, which he saw as both. The album features a strong dance sound, influenced by the band members' current musical tastes. Electronic musician Aoki Takamasa, who had previously created remixes for the band, collaborated with Sakanaction on primarily instrumental songs structure and Inori. The album was primarily promoted during its release by two songs: aoi, external song commission for NHK's 2013 soccer broadcasts that was promoted on radio and released exclusively on iTunes two weeks before the album, and Inori, internal song that was promoted with a music video and was released as Inori EP, vinyl exclusive release on June 26 2013. From March to June 2013, band promote album with the Sakanaquarium 2013 tour, including their first solely bill concert in Taiwan. The album was their first release to debut at number one on the Japanese Oricon albums chart, and was also certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of Japan during its first month. As of 2016, album is the band's most commercially successful release. Critics were positive about the album, praising Sakanaction's stronger dance sound, but were either disappointed that there was not greater change, or were alienated by internal songs.

Inori was chosen to be the first song on Sakanaction as it would surprise listeners who had only heard three singles and aoi. They saw inori, along with the band's song structure, as being the complete opposite to what they saw as outward-facing songs meant for wide audience that they had used for singles. The band separate Sakanaction songs into two categories: outward-facing and inner-facing, with inner-facing songs expressing the type of music that Sakanaction wants to do personally. They saw inori was the most inner-facing song on the album. Inori was a song created by Sakanaction working together with electronic musician Aoki Takamasa, who worked with the band on arrangement and mixing. Previously, band's songs followed the convention that every song had to be able to be performed with only guitar. Inori was their first song that go against this convention, and was composed by Yamaguchi without guitar. The band want inori to be a song without lyrics, in order for listeners to focus on the music itself, without imagery created by lyrics affecting their impressions of the song. Band release extend play under the name Sakanaction as opposed to their name in Japanese, which they use for their general releases. This was related to discussions the band had three years prior, where they wanted to use their name in katakana for their general musical releases and Sakanaction for instrumental songs.
