Japanese artist Cuuse, aka Mayuko Hitotsuyanagi, blurs the boundaries between reality and fantasy in her new video “Magic.” Directed by Tao Tajima and Yoko Kuno, “Magic” integrates animation characters into the vast panoramic landscapes of nature, stretching its viewers’ imagination. The track is dreamy production built on slacker pop riffs and swelling synths that have undertones of broodiness. Hit play:

Hailing from Tokyo, Mayuko lived in various cities including Osaka, London, and Berlin. The gal is a seasoned musician who has previously released three albums and multiple EPs and singles. “Magic” is from Cuushe’s upcoming album Waken, which will be out on November 20th via Flau.
