The Brief History of The Japanese House
Amber Mary Bain, otherwise known as The Japanese House, was born in Buckingham, England. The music is best described as lyrical indie-pop. She has this innate ability to transform her obsessions into melancholy symphonies. She had an interest for music as a small child. This came from The Japanese House growing up in a world surrounded by music. In an interview with PAPER magazine, she said, “I’ve been obsessed with music since I was a baby: my dad played guitar and was singing all of the time. I’d sing with him and we’d write songs together, he taught me guitar.”.
Dirty Hit Labels is the record company that signed The Japanese House. The same label that The 1975 are on the roster. Bain worked closely with Matt Healy, their lead vocalist. Next thing, rumors spread that she was the protege of the iconic band. In the same interview for PAPER magazine, she addressed these rumors and here’s what she had to say:
At 17, when I was green and didn’t know what was going on, I’d accept that more. But I’ve released an album now and four EP’s, so I think that’s really patronizing. I’m my own artist and I think they would want the world to think the same as well.Interview with PAPER magazine, May 1st, 2019.
The Japanese House Hits and Tour Dates
She has created 2 albums, 4 EPs, and a dozen singles over the course of her career. Even with her 3 year break, fans have been raving over her newest album drop “In The End It Always Does.” This album flourish is in the singers trademark–brutally honest lyrics. It is a sad themed album. That said, featured singles like “Boyhood” have an upbeat musicality.
