Cuushe | Tie
Japan’s wonderful Cuushe (aka Mayuko Hitotsuyanagi) has scaled back the experimental digital side of her earlier tracks, like her work on 2013’s Butterfly Case, and added another style to her expanding repertoire. This time around she’s venturing into a more seductive R&B sound with “Tie”, creating a more traditionally melodic track, with lush repeated vocals and entrancing rhythms. “Tie” is one song off Night Lines, her first release for Cascine and fourth for Japan’s flau label.
