The Japanese House is the solo project of Londoner Amber Bain. Crafting a mix of lush dream pop and brooding electronica, the Buckinghamshire native worked under a handful of different monikers before using the Japanese House name in 2015. The name was inspired by a childhood trip to Devon, where she posed as a boy for a week, earning the affection of a neighborhood girl who was later heartbroken to learn Bain's true identity.
'The music is a dreamlike display of both careful restraint and free-flowing creativity. Bain experiments with seemingly incongruent tapestries of sound, the earthy and the metal, the muted pastels and radiant neons, the futuristic and the familiar, to create something that’s neither purely cerebral nor of the heart.'
The Japanese House tour dates listed on Ents24.com since May 2015.
