2015 has been the year of THE JAPANESE HOUSE. The 20-year-old Londoner has released a string of hits, beautiful videos and to top it off, her second EP Clean, came out November 6th. Her  video ‘Sugar Pill’ is just like the sugary cherry on top of the cake.

The Japanese House (aka Amber Bain) may only be 20 years old, but her videos have this melancholy, and yet beautiful, home video feel. Her voice is deep and hypnotic, and her production skills are intricate and layered.

The video for ‘Sugar Pill’ is filled with the lights and visions of a carnival. You also get a glimpse of The Japanese House as she moves and dances to the beat in a transparent layer. Layers are a prominent theme for this video as lights from the carnival progress into countryside, with flashes of the carnival still lingering over a sunset.

The track itself has some haunting piano chords and layered vocals. The sound is obscure. ‘Sugar Pill’ progresses through different sounds as though you are on a journey, not unlike how you may fill if you have taken a sugar pill, perhaps thinking it were something else.

The final few moments of the clip and song are a new journey yet again in both sound and visuals, as though the sugar pill is wearing off.

Clean EP is due out November 6, though Dirty Hit Records.
