Listen Ahead playlist by Nothing But Hope And Passion is lead by Cuushe’s “Not to Blame” from the album WAKEN, NBHAP also exchanged a few words with her. Full Q&A and Playlist at:
Japanese artist Cuushe has, up to now, made dreampop in the richest sense of the term, making songs that shone with vivid colour, swirling with soft, graceful glow. But now on her new album, WAKEN, she’s moved in a different direction. That colour and life is still there, but it’s been reshaped into something new. Dream pop songs still have a home on the album, but its sound is heavier, busier and sharper than her previous work. With influences from club music, the songs on WAKEN are more hectic and harder than before.
