The Japanese House is a dream pop solo project of London-based Amber Bain. Amber is a Buckinghamshire native who picked the moniker of The Japanese House in 2015, taking inspiration from a childhood trip to Devon where she posed as a boy for a week. During the trip, a local girl caught feelings for Amber but was heartbroken when the girl learned Amber was a girl as well. The cottage where this all happened was called the Japanese House and was owned by actress Kate Winslet. The music of The Japanese House echoes this experience with its androgynous presentation of dream pop. Amber signed with Dirty HIts Records in 2015 and proceeded to release singles and EPs until her full album Good at Falling arrived in 2019. This album achieved critical success, reaching number 64 on the U.K. charts, and was followed up with her EP Chewing Cotton Wool in 2020. After a three-year hiatus, Amber came back with a single “Boyhood” in 2023.
