New Artist Discovery: The Japanese House

image

Fresh off of a world tour with label mates, The 1975, a solo project from the mind of singer-songwriter Amber Bain is catching the attention of music listeners globally with her distinctive style. 

With so many unique facets, it’s difficult to place The Japanese House in just one genre. Her blissful tunes carry sonic-electro elements while still maintaining an indie alternative feel. Her androgynous voice is well beyond her 21 years, emulating a modern Imogen Heap vibe that is past due in the music scene today. 

Bypassing an album, Bain teamed up with The 1975 members Matt Healy and drummer George Daniel to create a collection of EPs. Bain’s third addition, Swim Against The Tide will be available tomorrow, and she’s already dropped three tracks from the release, including “Good side in,” which came out this past Monday. Simply put: It’s crazy good. 

While we’re fixated on the eclectic style of The Japanese House, we’re completely intrigued by its name. Bain told NME back in August:

“A lot of female musicians, if they use their own name, get described as ‘female artist blah blah blah’. By taking away a person’s identity, all you have to focus on is the music, which is kind of cool.”
