The Japanese House streams new track “Cool Blue”.
If you’re one to keep up with breakthrough artists and new releases, it’d be a big surprise if The Japanese House has escaped your radar. The Japanese House’s talent was first highlighted when Zane Lowe selected her debut track, “Still,” for his last ever “Hottest Record” on Radio 1. With her signature blend of melancholic electronica and dreamlike alt-pop, 19-year-old Londoner Amber Bain has become the darling of music blogs far and wide. Her new releases are consistently shared among fans, publications, and fellow musicians with enthusiasm and haste, in an almost ever present murmur that would probably be tiresome if it wasn’t so agreeable.
Her newest track to spread like wildfire is “Cool Blue,” the lead single from her new EP, Clean. It’s stamped with the trademark The Japanese House feeling. Bain’s tracks are wildly atmospheric. In “Cool Blue,” she welcomes us inside a sun-drenched room where flickering guitar echoes off the walls and vocals swim around dancing particles of dust illuminated by sunbeams through derelict windowpanes. It’s a feeling of transcendence in a meditative haze.
The forthcoming “Clean” EP is out on November 6th on Dirty Hit Records. Leading up to this release, The Japanese House will set out on her first string of live shows, some of which have unsurprisingly already sold out.
