We first put The Japanese House on the cover of Dork 20-odd issues ago. Since, more than two years have passed - and even back then we were really, really ready to hear a full-length.
Thankfully, that wait is almost over. At the start of March, ‘Good at Falling’, Amber Bain’s debut studio album, will finally be released. You won’t get our full review until next issue, but you can guess by the fact she’s back on the front of this month’s edition just how good it is. And as if that wasn’t enough, she brought her 10/10 dog chum Calvin to the shoot. Someone knows how to keep us happy.
But that's not all we've got to offer this month...
Elsewhere we've got new interviews with Yak, Sunflower Bean, White Lies, FIDLAR, Girlpool and more. We chat with a band including an Actual Film Star (Ezra Miller's Sons Of An Illustrious Father, 'FYI'), rewind time with Metronomy and build coffee tables with Broods. Matt Maltese takes us in the studio for album two, while Blood Red Shoes, Cherry Glazerr and Queen Zee all talk through their new records.
In our new bands section Hype, we introduce Crewel Intentions, Another Sky and Alfie Templeton, while we report back from the front with The 1975, Christine and the Queens, George Ezra, Bring Me The Horizon, Lily Allen, Wolf Alice and more.
