Lilo, a song by The Japanese House
The Japanese House is an English indie pop act from Buckinghamshire consisting of solo artist Amber Bain. She has released four EPs; Pools to Bathe In, Clean, Swim Against the Tide, and Saw You in a Dream, through Dirty Hit. Bain contributes vocals and plays guitar, synthesizer and keyboard for her music. The name The Japanese House was inspired by a property in Cornwall, England previously owned by Kate Winslet with furnishings reminiscent of traditional Japanese tea houses in which Bain and her family stayed in her childhood. During her week-long stay in the cottage, Bain posed as a boy, calling herself Danny. Her experiences there heavily influenced the use of an anonymous label for her music as opposed to the use of her own name. Amber Bain has worked closely with British band The 1975, and went on her first tour as an opening act for them. Since then, she has been working on a debut album that is set for release in 2019.
