Japanese dreampop singer Cuushe makes electro-melancholia that caresses you like waves lapping at the shore. Last month she put out her second record ‘Girl You Know That I Am Here But The Dream’ on flau, which silkily weaves between her own material and remixes from Julia Holter and Blackbird Blackbird that go from sound-art to synthpop. Today Cuushe premieres the exquisite video for 'Do You Know The Way To Sleep' on Dazed Digital, where ballerinas' plié and children weep as the song morphs from gauzy ambience to a strong-hearted plea.
…The story behind your name? Cuushe is a misreading of the French word for "nap".
… The most important song in the world to you? ‘My Funny Valentine’
