Between the hazy pictures, low key early gigs and the intangible music, the mystery surrounding The Japanese House, aka 23-year-old Amber Bain, could seem contrived. It is however, borne of a shyness that speaks to her gossamer pop sound.
Earlier this year Bain dropped her debut album Good At Falling, went on tour, and shared live EP The LA Sessions. That would be plenty for any artist, but she isn’t just any artist. Bain is back again with the announcement of another new EP, Something Has To Change, and dropped the project’s title track. The track is The Japanese House being introspective, which means it’s as great as we’ve come to expect.
