Hot off the heels of her second album, In The End It Always Does, The Japanese House (whose real name is Amber Bain) will hit the road from May for a run of four live dates.
Bain is playing her biggest headline show to date at the Roundhouse in Camden as part of the four gigs.

Last week, The Japanese House played a sell-out gig at London’s new HERE at Outernet venue. In our four-star review of the event, whynow said: “With an artist like The Japanese House, who has a discography so varied and experimental and so often solemn, sometimes live shows can feel long or dragging with no time or space to get dancing.
“But at Outernet, Amber Bain avoided the curse, putting on a show that wowed, delighted and stunned.”
The Japanese House will play:
07 – Glasgow, UK – SWG3
08 – Birmingham, UK – O2 Institute
09 – London, UK – Roundhouse
10 – Manchester, UK – Albert Hall
In our four-star review of her latest album, In The End It Always Does, we were similarly enthused, writing it is “as gentle as it is significant, as simple as it is specific, and as intellectual as it is personal.
“It’s a leap from her debut as The Japanese House continues to assert herself as a leader in her own realm, refusing to stick to one genre or sound but gathering up a bit of everything to soundtrack her inner world.”
