Become entranced with the premiere of The Japanese House’s new track ‘Sister’.
Taken from the enigmatic singer’s debut EP Pools To Bathe In, ‘Sister’ is sonically the most uplifting of track to be revealed so far. Like the songs before it, the production is reminiscent of early Imogen Heap, vocoded vocals layered in deep harmonies above moody synths. However, unlike the other songs from the EP, ‘Sister’ has added percussion elements that give the track a sense of urgency. Yet all sense of order is restored in the last 40 seconds as a warm bass and guitar sooths the tension.
While The Japanese House, aka Amber Bain, the 19-year-old London based singer remains a bit of a mystery, what we do know is that her music has a luscious ambient quality that’s both moving and comforting. And with her debut EP out later this month (April 27 to be precise) on Dirty Hit, we can’t wait to lose ourselves in it’s all consuming beauty.
