After spending much of 2017 in hibernation January began writing her next album in 2018. This time with her bandmate and keyboardist Chris Kennedy leading her to experiment with an unconventional approach to an age-old instrument, created by placing felt or pegs on the hammers of the piano. The record defines January's signature sound which was further developed by her continued musical partnership with producer Matt Robertson. Her rich and emotive vocals create warmth and sweetness while the vocal overdubs create an echoing providing layer upon layer of luxurious, uplifting, undeniably spiritual warmth via lyrics that intertwine metaphor and a longing for love. Each song is set to arpeggios played contemplatively and intimately. While producer Matt Robertson, who’s skills are as diverse as the artists he works with (musical director for Björk, The Cinematic Orchestra) cocoons her songs with analogue synths, sequencing and arranging them into perfection, creating something truly unique, sounding only like January. January released her album Kintsugi on her label, January Music in August of 2019.
