Having been introduced to the band by label mates The 1975, The Japanese House are in good company at indie label Dirty Hit. Rather, ‘she’ is – as the band’s name is the stage name for 20-year-old Amber Bain. Londoner Amber released her latest EP, ‘Clean’, to great critical acclaim in November and has drawn attention to her almost feminine version of The 1975, but with her own edge to the music. Having the likes of The 1975, Wolf Alice and Marika Hackman on your label can only be a good thing, and having drawn comparisons to her colleagues so far, it is no wonder to see why Dirty Hit snapped her up.
The Japanese House are about to embark on a tour, and will be stopping off at The Haunt in Brighton, a popular destination for any rising artist. The ‘Clean’ EP was recorded last summer, and saw her build upon the sounds found on her debut EP ‘Pools to Bathe In’. The shimmered guitar and vocoder vocals bring a certain refreshing taste to her lush indie music. Her melancholy electronica is sure to delight The Haunt and engulf the venue with her alt-pop sound.
Tickets for her tour are still available, so grab them from the link below quick before they sell out!
