“‘In the End It Always Does,’ Amber Bain’s second album as the Japanese House, strikes a beautiful equilibrium. Bain is at her best when she’s embracing a sense of playfulness, winking as subtly as she cries, sashaying between humor and hurt.” – Pitchfork

“Flickering synth-pop … which pairs smooth sonic surfaces and effervescent electronic flourishes with her yearning, achingly human vocals.” – The New York Times

“Amber Bain is more honest and open than ever on her new record. Despite the serious subject matter, ‘In the End It Always Does’ is Bain at her poppiest; I dare you to find a catchier hook than on the chorus of album standout ‘Touching Yourself.’” – Nylon

“Amber Bain’s terrific sophomore album explores themes of transformation, heartbreak, and queer identity.” – Consequence

 “Glimmering, nostalgic, solemn dream pop.”

– Rolling Stone

“20 Best Summer Albums of 2023. [On] ‘In The End It Always Does,’ Bain continues her creative partnership with producer George Daniel of The 1975, giving these songs a humid funk and a deep-rooted sense of melody, the kind that sinks into your mind and repeats on loop.”

– ELLE Magazine

“Since her early anonymous EPs, Bain has quietly become one of the most consistent artists on the Dirty Hit roster with her feathery synth soundscapes, stacked Auto-Tuned vocals, and intensely personal lyricism. She deploys all of them to great effect here while emphasizing her indie pop streak. [It’s] is sharp, poignant, and beautiful. Each play can reveal rich new details, leaving you free to explore the differing shades of Bain’s latest cycle.” – Under The Radar


“Bain is a subtle Casanova.” – GQ

“Dreamy indie-pop …” – Interview Magazine

“Exploring painfully intimate subjects, her music feels as heavy as it sounds light.”– Paper

“A one-woman powerhouse of indie synths and hypnotizing vocals.” – Newsweek

“A mix of sumptuous synths and vocals with muted drums that sound like they’ve been wrapped in felt.” – Pitchfork

“Meticulously crafted.” – Billboard


“Bain’s music is tender and restrained, as if she is cushioning her own fall as she recants wounding memories and works through still-present feelings.” – FADER

“Poignant … against buzzing synthesizers, Amber Bain gets introspective with painful, incisive lyrics.” – UPROXX

“unabashedly catchy earworm” – Document Journal

NEW YORK, NY – November 1, 2023, The Japanese House (the acclaimed project of Amber Bain) will kick off her highly anticipated North American Tour TONIGHT in Philadelphia in support of her critically acclaimed album In The End It Always Does.

Limited tickets for San Antonio, Phoenix, Lawrence, Detroit, South Burlington and Boston only remain. Please visit for more details.


Released over the summer, the songs on In The End It Always Does highlight heartbreak and love lost, emotional reflections on childhood trauma and identity, and the album finds The Japanese House embracing her pop-side with help from Matty Healy and George Daniel (The 1975), Katie Gavin (MUNA) and Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon among others. The album was produced and engineered by Chloe Kraemer (Rex Orange County, Lava La Rue, Glass Animals), an experience Bain describes as “life changing” due to the unspoken, shared understanding between marginalised genders in a creative space. In The End It Always Does features acclaimed singles  “One for sorrow, two for Joni Jones,” “Sunshine Baby,” “Sad To Breathe,” and “Boyhood.”
