The Japanese House returns with new single ':)'

Following on from her much-loved sophomore LP 'In The End It Always Does' last year, The Japanese House returns to deliver a brand new single.

The new track ':)' marks her first piece of new material so far this year, and was produced by The Japanese House aka Amber Bain alongside George Daniel and Chloe Kraemer.

Speaking about the new offering, she said, “‘Smiley Face’ is a song I wrote when I was very excited about talking to someone off a dating app. She lived in Detroit and I was fantasising about flying to meet her. I was in a session at the time for someone else stuff but I couldn't help this song spilling out of me, I was in some sort of frenzy. Turns out I did buy the plane tickets, now we're engaged.”

Have a listen to ':)' in the player below.
