The Japanese House // 3/3


If you have followed Symbiosis Music for any amount of time, you’ll already know that I love The Japanese House. The three EPs she’s released so far are some of my favorite bodies of work, and my opinion of her only went up after seeing her live earlier this year. She is currently in the process of releasing her fourth EP, Saw You In A Dream, and leading up to it she has shared three tracks. All three sound unique but it’s becoming more and more clear that there is still cohesion between them. The comment I’ve made about both of the singles I’ve covered here is that the scope of what Amber Bain is doing has seemingly increased, and that’s definitely still true on latest released 3/3. It’s also potentially her most melodic track. The Japanese House has done a wonderful job of establishing a unique sound that is obviously hers, but exploring it and pushing the boundaries so that her releases don’t at all feel monotonous. This is readily observable on 3/3 as she still utilizes layered harmonies and staccato electric guitars to lay the foundation that have become one of her signatures, but then has one of her more accessible melodies to date. The Japanese House is still the artist I’m the most excited to see what they do. Check out 3/3 below and look for her Saw You In A Dream EP being released on June 27th.
