Singer/songwriter The Japanese House aka: Amber Bain, has unveiled the video for her new single ‘Saw You In A Dream’, released 16th June via Dirty Hit.
‘Saw You In A Dream’ ushers in new, classic tones to her songwriting and is perhaps her most honest offering yet. Speaking about her inspiration behind the song, Amber explained: “It’s a very clear message: I didn’t want to drown my vocals in too many harmonies this time because the melody is quite strong on its own. Rather than to hide your sadness about your loss of someone, it’s a nice thing to be like ‘I miss them’. That’s why the vocals are quite present.”
The track itself has a relatively dark subject matter, yet the tone beneath the story brings shades of new light, favouring sun-dappled guitars and bright hues. This is reflected in the video, which is her most visually stunning to date and follows Amber through an ever evolving film set in a series of colourful, dream like sequences.
The release comes in the midst of a run of European dates, which kicked off in April and culminates with her biggest London headline show to date at KOKO tomorrow. She goes on to headline the VEVO stage at The Great Escape this Thursday and will be playing a host of festivals over the summer, including Latitude, Parklife and Reading & Leeds.
