The Japanese House Performs Softly Sweet Tiny Desk Concert: Watch

Amber Bain (aka The Japanese House) recently paid the NPR offices a visit for a Tiny Desk Concert, during which the June 2023 CoSign alum performed highlights from her fantastic sophomore effort, In the End It Always Does.

The UK singer-songwriter marked her appearance at the Tiny Desk by swapping out some of the synth sounds on In the End for soft, sweeping arrangements with brushed drums and a violin, aided occasionally by resonant piano and baritone sax sounds.

The set opened with a stripped-down, intimate version of “Sunshine Baby,” before moving on to a performance of “Baby Goes Again.” A quick tuning of her guitar led into the keyboard-driven tune “Over There,” before wrapping up the set with the album single “Boyhood.” As the concert came to a close, Bain’s “thank you” to the audience was barely audible over booming rounds of applause.

Later this month, The Japanese House will play a headlining show in Japan, followed by a run of UK dates opening for The 1975. Then, she’ll head back on the road this spring, making festival appearances at Coachella, Bonnaroo, and Hinterland.

Last year, The Japanese House sat down with Kyle Meredith to talk inspiration for her latest full-length, including 101 Dalmatians.
