The Japanese House is the musical pseudonym of Buckinghamshire-born Amber Bain, whose unique vocoder-drenched chilled out indie-pop provides a welcome rest bite from the chaos of the modern world.
A lot of people will have first been turned onto The Japanese House when she had the honour of her track “Still” being made Zane Lowe’s hottest record, on the tastemaker’s very last ever Radio 1 show. The laid back track is taken from her blissful sounding debut EP ‘Pools To Bath In’, her first release on Dirty Hit Records (The 1975, Wolf Alice). The track which features production credits from members of The 1975 captured the imagination of the people and has been streamed over 7 million times on Spotify thus far. Listen below.
Amber has spent a large chunk of the last year on the road, winning over new fans the old-fashioned way, city by city. She supported The 1975 on their phenomenal run of dates throughout the UK and Europe in Spring and is just completing her first run of phenomenally popular US shows before reuniting with her 1975 buddies on their upcoming UK arena dates.
With a swelling fan base and almost universal positivity from tastemakers, it feels as though the next 12 months are going to be quite something for The Japanese House. Her debut album is surely going to be released sometime in 2017, so don’t be surprised if this time next year she’s topping plenty of ‘best of ‘ lists.
