The Japanese House is Amber Bain, a deeply soulful singer-songwriter who arrives in support of "Good at Falling." It's a breathtaking album whose atmospheric electronic textures are offset by deeply emotional reflections on love and heartache.
The Skinny says the album "has a feeling of the relief that comes after crying," adding, "It takes a moment to sit in sorrow, to feel every inch of it, only to find it washed away by hope and gratitude."
