The Japanese House today makes her much-anticipated return with brand new single ‘Lilo’, out now via Dirty Hit. Describing the creation of the serene synth-pop track, The Japanese House explains it was inspired by one of her best friends encouraging her into the beginnings of a new relationship that turned out to be “everything I needed”.
‘Lilo’, she continues, is about “how, to me, her every movement – paired with her approach to life – seemed as serene as the image of a lilo floating across a swimming pool… it is a reminder to me that I am good at falling in love and I can survive falling out of it. I’m good at falling.”
The Japanese House, otherwise known as Amber Bain, has to date released four acclaimed EPs with Dirty Hit: Pools To Bathe In (2015), Clean (2015), Swim Against The Tide (2016) and her latest release, 2017’s Saw You In A Dream. With an “experimental and impressive” (DIY) sound adored by both critics and fans, Amber has played in arenas across the UK with labelmates The 1975, taking in shows at the O2 Arena, and found herself landing a spot on the prestigious BBC Sound Of 2017 Longlist. With a raft of sold out headline shows under her belt, including a night at London’s Koko, “Bain’s rise to the top appears imminent” (NME).
