Kyoto native dream pop artist Cuushe (who recently toured with Grouper in Japan), Using her mesmerizing airy vocals as the main instrument, Cuushe composes pop-infused electronic music that is lovable and yet uniquely different from any other song-based pop sounds out there. Together with the delicate lyrics penned by her, the multi-talented cuushe beautifully projects a subtle musical world that is carefully wrapped with sensitive emotion and fragile memories. her recent ep 'Girl You Know That I Am Here But The Dream' was featured Julia Holter, artwork by Rachel Evans (Motion Sickness Of Time Travel) and mastered by Miles Whitaker (Demdike Stare/Pendle Coven).

a gorgeous and smooth masterfully-produced affair, whilst containing a crackling warmth and rawness - literally crackling in places. - The 405
