C Z A R I N A slices and dices the competition with her eye-popping, mind-blowing music film BLAZE: Dances of the Yokai [The Tale of the Assassin and the Samurai] — premiering exclusively on Tinnitist.
Borrowing from Japanese mythology and the legends of the Fox Spirit with Nine Tails, C Z A R I N A takes viewers to a new magical realm in this latest action-packed chanbara classic — which is easily the most ambitious, daring and just-plain amazing video you’ll see today. 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 Tarantino’s 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 Aragoto also played by C Z A R I N A, to the track Blaze from her debut record Painted Holograms. It was directed by Deliris Films and The Kitsunés, in association with Missy B. Papageorge.

Inspired by her love for futurist culture, cyberpunk, 80s tech noir, mecha robots, martial arts and Japanese Anime, C Z A R I N A has created a distinctively compelling artistic universe that is a true fusion of her unique strengths in both visual and musical artistry. Dabbling with atmospheric synths and lush cinematic tones, C Z A R I N A takes her audience into a smoke-filled, neon-lit dimension, with vivid and colorful lyricism, sonic guitars, heartfelt melodies and powerful vocal hooks which are all signature to her unique soundscape.
