Tucked Away: Albino’s “Hidden Place”

Albino thrives on a sense of intimacy. The Japanese artist — who doesn’t reveal much info about where she is or how long she’s been creating music — creates a warm escape on her latest song “Hidden Place,” a dreamy number that sounds like it is folding over itself. Everything unfolds at a syrupy pace, with sounds of bugs buzzing and train station announcements helping to ground music that sounds spaced out. Yet as woozy as it gets, Albino’s singing — unafraid to push up a register — rises above it, and stands as the song’s most beautiful element. Fans of Cokiyu or Cuushe, check it out. Listen above.
