We’ve been head over heels with The Japanese House for a while now. That unique and instantly recognisable blending of glacial-chimes and spine-tingling rawness have been captivating right from the go, and with each and every release that sounds has only gotten stronger. To follow-up such a masterful run of collections would do most artists in, but for The Japanese House ‘Saw You In A Dream’ may very well be her defining moment to date - and the moment where Amber Bain becomes the pop superstar we’ve all been waiting for.

Carefree and her most direct anthem to date, ‘Saw You In A Dream’ manages to encapsulate everything vital about The Japanese House before unravelling itself in dazzling fashion. Laid across a rich bed of guitars and soothing bass-lines, it’s a track that doesn’t so much grab you by the shoulders but instead lifts them up, like a spell-binding journey across the city at night. Sugar sweet in its many golden moments, ‘Saw You In A Dream’ has that special knack most tracks will never reach, an ability to switch you into an all-encompassing world of sparkling clarity that you’ll never want to leave.

That’s what makes The Japanese House such an unrivalled voice. Not just soundtracking a moment in time, ‘Saw You In A Dream’ captures the butterflies in your stomach, the unbridled emotion that swirls round your head and the longing desire that can only come from loving someone unconditionally. It’s majestic, stunning and a beacon above the city that takes The Japanese House to an unrivalled new level. Everyone’s playing catch-up now. Jamie Muir
