Here’s another track for you to daydream to. Cokiyu’s soft-spoken voice pairs well with Baths’ otherworldy beats, and we’re loving the tender sound. Some are even calling it pitch-perfect.
Cute and whimsical (and very Japanese), this track somehow manages to stay away from the soft sound by introducing lively beats into the mix.
It’s a great to see these two recognized names coming together. Cokiyu is Yukiko Ito, a Japanese composer/singer who studied musicology and has worked with other Japanese artists like Aus. Baths, of course, is an artist known for blog favorites like “Maximalist.” Side note: have you read our interview with him?
Cokiyu has a forthcoming collaborative EP called Haku, featuring other artists like beatmakers Madegg, LASTorder & Geskia! It’ll drop this Monday, so until then, you can listen to cokiyu on SoundCloud. For more lullatone-esque, ambient sounds, check out her track Sorrow Waltz.
