Grab this free:
The EP is receiving some serious critical acclaim:
Exquisite. Dazed and Confused
multi-talented cuushe beautifully projects a subtle musical world that is carefully wrapped with sensitive emotion and fragile memories. This Fake DIY
stabs of piano chased by ice-like synths, and gradually forms into a rich, swirling soundscape. CMU Daily Approved.
her voice and dreamy sleep-inducing musings prove illuminating. God Is In The TV
culminates in a production that sounds not unlike some of our favorite tracks on Four Tet’s breathtaking There Is Love in You. XLR8R
Girl / You Know That I Am Here / But the Dream is an incredible three-disc release. The FADER
After three years of silence since the release of her captivating debut album Red Rocket Telepathy, contemporary Japanese dream-pop singer, Cuushe is back with a gorgeous new set of breath-taking materials.
In this masterfully produced new EP, entitled Girl / You Know That I am Here / But the Dream , the multi-talented Cuushe once again carefully crafted 3 songs that were sonically constructed to illustrate beautiful dreamscapes with her feathery voices, floating electronic sounds, and heart-melting dream pop melodies. Cuushe’s amazing voices are always been associated with fascinating words like ”dreamy lilts” ,”gentle whispers” ,“air-ish transparent”, and more prominently: ”achingly beautiful”. In this beautiful collection of dream-pop songs, Cuushe again used her voices as the main instrument to wrap those exquisite synthesizer sounds, elegant strokes of piano and edgy guitar chords, and float them altogether into the air, with layers of vocals and reverb of noises. This amazing soundscape will euphorically transport you to the other side of the never ending dream, where you always wanted to be.
In addition to that, several top-notch artists have enjoyed Cuushe’s new sounds so much, that they have came together to make an amazing collection of remixes for this EP.
The very talented Teen Daze, Botany and Blackbird Blackbird masterfully rebuilt her songs into toe-tapping synth-pop masterpieces and chill-wave hits. Polish beatmaker Kixnare added massive bass. On the other hand, Julia Holter made a rare remix using Cuushe ‘ s sounds material in a gorgeous sound-art way. Motion Sickness of Time Travel , who produced the amazing collage for Cuushe’s album artwork, also did a fantastic remix by creating psychedelic, dreamy, ambient sounds with her wonderful voice. If you have enjoyed Cuushe’s debut album, you will find yourself difficult to take this EP off from your player.
