The Japanese House release debut album ‘Good At Falling’

THE JAPANESE HOUSE has released her long-awaited debut album GOOD AT FALLING via Dirty Hit. Produced by THE JAPANESE HOUSE [aka Amber Bain] BJ BURTON [Low, Bon Iver] and GEORGE DANIEL from the 1975, GOOD AT FALLING follows four acclaimed EP releases and includes the singles LILO and MAYBE YOU’RE THE REASON as well as FOLLOW MY GIRL and WE TALK ALL THE TIME. In the build-up to GOOD AT FALLING, THE JAPANESE HOUSE played a sold-out show at London Scala, completed a twelve date European tour and received acclaim from The Guardian, The Sunday Times, NME and many more.

The album began as demos recorded by Bain on her laptop in her room in London, and was finished in studios across Wisconsin, Brussels and Oxford. The result is an album that draws from Bain’s life in a way her work never has before; a personal, vulnerable and yet confident body of work. “These songs are definitely more direct,” she explains. “The album has a lot more of me in it, so it makes sense.”

To celebrate the release of GOOD AT FALLING, THE JAPANESE HOUSE have shared the video for the latest single MAYBE YOU’RE THE REASON, which sees Amber searching for answers amidst the shadows, pulling at the less optimistic threads from the glowing sad-pop anthem.
