THE JAPANESE HOUSE shares video for new single ‘LILO’ - Watch Now

The Japanese House today shares the video for her new single ‘Lilo’, out now via Dirty Hit. Shot in the beautiful surroundings of the English countryside, the video is an emotional depiction of a relationship on the verge of sinking, featuring The Japanese House (aka Amber Bain) and also starring Marika Hackman.

“Filming this video was painful, easy, real and surreal all at once. I asked Marika to be in the video because I couldn’t think who better to be in it than the person the song is about. I’m extremely grateful that she said yes; I’m very lucky that my ex-girlfriend is also my best friend. It was a slightly mad decision but ultimately I think we captured exactly what I wanted to, which was a true and genuine representation of the love and intimacy we share. When I watch this video myself my heart breaks, but in kind of a nice way.” - The Japanese House

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).
