The Japanese House Unveils New Single “Face Like Thunder”

THE JAPANESE HOUSE UNVEILS NEW SINGLE “FACE LIKE THUNDER”

NEW EP SWIM AGAINST THE TIDE RELEASED NOVEMBER 11 VIA DIRTY HIT / INTERSCOPE RECORDS
September 27, 2016 (Santa Monica, CA) The Japanese House has returned with a new single “Face Like Thunder,” the first track from her forthcoming third EP Swim Against the Tide, out November 11 via Dirty Hit / Interscope Records.

Premiering on Annie Mac’s Radio 1 show last night, “Face Like Thunder” presents The Japanese House’s production at its most sunlit, with a record that despite its seemingly negative subject matter - “I kiss the floor, curled up in a ball / there’s nothing coming out of my month, so I said nothing at all” - sounds at once poignantly sad and contemplative, but also surfacing with what sounds like deep breaths of opportunity.  It’s in a track like this that the dualism Amber’s work is built upon is perhaps at its most present.

The Japanese House is the captivating moniker of 21-year-old Amber Bain. Over the past 18 months she has emerged as one of the UK’s most promising artists, following the release of her two EPs (Pools To Bathe In and Clean)which showcased her ability to create brooding, melancholic electronica that pushes the parameters of alt-pop. She now returns with Swim Against the Tide, which builds upon the sonic foundations laid so far by Amber, taking her distinctive sound to new heights by a more open embrace of pop sensibilities. With shades of introspection polarised by some of her most euphoric moments to date, Swim Against the Tide is a statement release from Amber.

After spending the majority of the year on the road supporting The 1975 on their worldwide tour, as well as embarking on her first run of headline dates, The Japanese House will be hitting the road again this fall for a series of UK, EU and US dates, providing another chance to see this fascinating new artist ahead of what will be no doubt be a huge 2017.
