The Japanese House shares new EP and Justin Vernon collaboration ‘Dionne’

Two previously unheard songs appear on the ‘Chewing Cotton Wool’ EP

The Japanese House has shared new EP ‘Chewing Cotton Wool’, which includes a new track featuring Bon Iver‘s Justin Vernon.

The Vernon collaboration, ‘Dionne’, is one of two new songs on the EP. Its title track arrived back in November, following on from previous single ‘Something Has To Change’.

This comes after Bon Iver contributed to Taylor Swift’s recently released eighth album, ‘Folklore’. Justin Vernon co-wrote the song ‘Exile’, on which he also appears as a guest vocalist.

Reviewing ‘Chewing Cotton Wool’, NME wrote: “‘Chewing Cotton Wool’ is an elevation of Bain’s sound. It’s a short collection, but one brings the last few years of music of The Japanese House full circle, while pushing to the future with its lush sounds and huge, radio-ready hooks.

“Short but sweet, it’s another indication of the avant-pop maven Bain’s poised to become.”

Amber Bain released her debut studio album ‘Good At Falling’ in March 2019. In a four-star review, NME described it as “a glittering record stuffed full of gleaming, brilliantly honest songs”.


“From the earth shattering ‘Lilo’ to the radio ready hooks of ‘You Seemed so Happy’, ‘Good at Falling’ is a stunning and emotive debut,” our verdict stated. “People may have been wondering who Bain was when she first released music, but on her debut album she’s made damn sure you won’t forget her.”
