Although she's been putting out quality pop cuts for years, Amber Bain aka The Japanese House has yet to put out a full-length album. That is all going to change on March 1st when Dirty Hit will put out her first album, Good at Falling. The latest track to be shared from the album is 'Maybe You're The Reason', a track that describes her climb out of depression through the love for another, as she explains:

“It’s about being depressed and realising there's no meaning in anything. Then in the chorus I thought, I can't keep this up! I need to make it something nice. I thought about my girlfriend at the time, and how maybe loving someone is the reason you live? It's the cheesiest chorus ever, but I think it needed it.”

Just as Bain explains, 'Maybe You're The Reason' finds her swimming in self-doubt and drowning in depression, asking "is there a point to this?/ Or are we living for the feeling when we look back and reminisce?" Constructed out of lamenting guitars and blocks of sad-sack synth, 'Maybe You're The Reason' manages to capture the dejection of the verses, but lift itself to a punchy and hopeful message for the chorus, where Bain is realising that her love for someone is all she needs to pull her out of this spiral. "Every time I try to figure it out/ You're the only thing I can think about/ maybe you're the reason," she admits, and a ray of light cracks through the gloom, bringing with it a lively synth solo that is sure to lift the spirits. Check out 'Maybe You're The Reason' below.
