CHEWING COTTON WOOL is the second new track since THE JAPANESE HOUSE – aka Amber Bain –
released the critically acclaimed debut album GOOD AT FALLING earlier this year via Dirty Hit. The new EP is again produced by Amber and BJ Burton (Bon Iver, Francis & The Lights, Low & Banks). The album followed four previous EPs, praised for their “experimental and impressive” (DIY) sound, adored by both critics and fans alike.
Amber recently released SOMETHING HAS TO CHANGE from the forthcoming EP and, following on from her recently completed US tour, announced three UK dates in December where she’ll be playing in Glasgow, Manchester and London.
THE JAPANESE HOUSE has played in arenas across the UK with label mates The 1975, taking in the O2 Arena in London, and found herself nominated on the prestigious BBC Sound of 2017 Longlist. With a raft of sold out headline shows throughout the UK under her belt, and a huge US tour and a summer of festival shows including Reading, Leeds and Latitude behind her, Bain is now primed to head out on the road once more before the end of the year, with new music to play along the way.
