Rising British artist The Japanese House has shared a dazzling new video for the title track of her upcoming EP, Saw You In A Dream. The new single is a hazy dream of a song, as Amber Bain’s soft angelic vocals glide over the luscious instrumentation and soft guitar grooves. Although the track’s subject matter of getting someone back after death for a fleeting moment is devastating, Bain manages to make the song sound deceptively warm and nostalgic, becoming both addictive and almost too existential to confront.

The video, helmed by Lucy Tcherniak and Jason Baum, who also directed Kendrick Lamar’s gobsmacking clip for “HUMBLE,” sees Bain and a clan of beautiful dancers gracefully prance between vintage art deco sets in a film studio. It evokes the haunting dreamlike nature of the song as they drift in between fantasy worlds, but the Hollywood soundstage brings in an element of harsh reality, which reminds us that not all is how we want it to be. Watch the stunning clip below.
