Cuco

Sometimes the safest world to reside in–hide in–is the one you create yourself. For his second full-length studio album, Fantasy Gateway, Cuco did just that.
The time between Para Mí and now, which fell during the isolating lockdown of the pandemic, found Cuco facing himself—the good, the bad, and the ugly. Determined to become a healthier version of himself, he had to build a safe haven—starting from within. For the recording of Fantasy Gateway, Cuco planted himself in his parents’ native land of Mexico, specifically Mexico City, to explore all his selves—song by song.
Inspired by his “psychedelic experiences,” his second album places one in the middle of a collision between “heaven and purgatory” and provokes one to question lucid dreaming. “I want to give a good feeling to people,” Cuco says. “A feeling that they’ve felt before, but they don’t know what it is.”
“I’ve always been an imaginative person, and found nostalgia alluring,” he continues, ”I remember memories that never existed, things that I never lived, things I have lived, and I think of the future as a past memory. That’s the fantasy gateway for me: being in a perfect place, but feeling discomfort.”
