Somewhere between the physical and spiritual realms, a mysterious young assassin infiltrates the grounds of Yokai warriors in search of their leader. The latest music film from Brooklyn-based, rising RetroFuture Synth, Cyberpunk and Electronic Rock Artist, Musician, Producer and Filmmaker, C Z A R I N A. Borrowing from Japanese mythology and the legends of the Fox Spirit with Nine Tails, C Z A R I N A takes us to a new magical realm in this latest action-packed chanbara classic. Featuring cameo appearances by fellow synthwave artists and producers, (Faith In The Glitch, Bunny X, Turbo Goth, S.P.H.E.R.E.S.), and real-life Budo and Martial Arts expert, DeadlyKawaii, the music film follows a mysterious young assassin slashing her way through to find her ultimate opponent. Filled with memorable characters inspired by beloved retro video games and samurai epics to create a new unique blend of Kabuki Noir and Bushido Cyperpunk that balances both ferocity with a lot of heart, the music film is narrated through bombastic song and dance by a Kabuki Aragato also played by C Z A R I N A, to her title track “Blaze,” from her debut record PAINTED HOLOGRAMS.
