January Thompson was born in Los Angeles, but is now based in the UK after working with a host of underground DJ’s and producers.
Often compared to the likes of Kate Bush and Bjork, January’s latest album, Whelmed, is soft and tender with an extreme aesthetic discipline.
Her songs melt inextricably into each other with a sonic palette of synth oscillations and atmospheric reverb, advancing and receding within them like shadows.
Januarys single ‘Too Soon’ has distinctly rich and emotive vocals, which form warmth and sweetness whilst creating an echoing, almost haunting feeling with lyrics that tale a longing for love and togetherness.
Whelmed is available now on iTunes.
