- The Japanese House Premieres New Song “Lilo” on Apple Beats 1
- British alt-pop artist Amber Bain, aka The Japanese House unveiled a new song “Lilo” on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 radio show.
The song is taken from her upcoming as-yet-untitled debut album, which is expected to be released later in 2018.
The song was written by Amber Bain and co-produced by George Daniel, who is a member of The 1975.
Amber Bain said of the song:
“One of my best friends five years ago called me up when I was in a state of total heartbreak and said: ‘I’ve met somebody and you’re going to fall completely in love with them’. Quite quickly this became entirely true. Lilo is a song about that relationship, how she was everything I needed at that time and how, to me, her every movement - paired with her approach to life - seemed as serene as the image of a lilo floating across a swimming pool.
I feel very close to this song as I began writing it just before this relationship came to an end and finished it just after it had. Now, it is a reminder to me that I am good at falling in love and I can survive falling out of it. I’m good at falling.
'You were floating like a Lilo, with your eyes closed, going where the tide goes. Caught in flux: you drifted till you hit the sides.'”
