Preview: The Japanese House at The Joiners, Southampton


Almost a year on, Amber Bain aka The Japanese House returns to Southampton’s Joiners for the second date of her 2016 UK tour, which spans the UK, Europe and North America over the next six weeks.

Since then, the 21 year-old singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist has amassed noticeable popularity, off the back of a further UK tour alongside Isaac Gracie and support of the 1975 on their worldwide tour, which has no doubt spread her music and unique sound to a more mainstream audience. As of this morning, Bain released her second single of 2016, the mellow offering ‘Swim Against the Tide’ which follows the poppier, more upbeat sound of ‘Face Like Thunder‘, premiered by Annie Mac on Radio 1 last month and synonymous with her 2015 EP releases Clean and Pools to Bathe In.

Support comes in the form of London-based indie outfit Colouring who will be accompanying Bain at all ten UK dates and fellow indie four-piece Fake Laugh, who will be supporting in Nottingham, Glasgow, Birmingham and Norwich.

Saturday’s Joiners gig promises to be something special and perhaps we will get whispers of an elusive debut album release next year. With the exception of a handful of US dates, tickets for all dates across the UK (Southampton included), Europe and North America are still available here.
