Listen: The Japanese House unveils melancholic new ballad ‘Chewing Cotton Wool’

A heartwrenching, downtempo track from The Japanese House

The Japanese House has released a pensive, melancholic new ballad called “Chewing Cotton Wool.”

The heartwrenching, downtempo new tune revolves around an ambient, cyclical instrumental line as frontwoman Amber Bain sings about the loss of a loved one, as their memory becomes inescapable. Bain’s painstaking lyricism truly shines on this track, as she sings lines like, “She’s the sound of your own voice/ She’s someone else’s drink/ She’s like living in the countryside/ She’s the whirlpool in the sink.”
