The Japanese House

As The Japanese House, twenty-one year old Amber Bain has created a world of incredible depth and nuance. From the release of debut single “Still” in 2015 to last year’s ‘Swim Against The Tide’ EP, her auteur-like sound captures the pain and growth of displaced relationships, the emotion that comes from moving solitarily through life, and the clarity of understanding that can come afterward.

Though Amber’s work has long been rooted in personal experiences (the name The Japanese House was inspired by a childhood holiday, where she developed a crush on the girl next door) her latest release “Saw You In A Dream” is perhaps the most honest offering yet. Ushering in new, classic tones to her songwriting, with a focus on melody overproduction, the song breathes colourful life into the next stage of The Japanese House. On the outset, it could be a break-up song. Get deep into its bedrock though and the focus is revealed to be stark and personal.
