The complexities of loss are a tough, often impossible thing to try and comprehend. Through the prism of house, alternative R&B and pop, the Vancouver-born, now Montréal-based producer and artist, Janette King attempts to decipher some of these difficulties on her debut album, What We Lost, which is set for release on June 25, 2021, via Hot Tramp Records. King's songs here attempt to tap into the frightening intersection where searing pain and sadness can produce soaring new heights for art whilst simultaneously unpacking changes in her life such as the ending of romance, the loss of close family members, and at times, a loss of self. This full body of work arrives following a run of tipped singles and EPs which have found acclaim in Canada from CBC Radio, Exclaim, and Xtra Magazine, as well as earning King sets opening for Sudan Archives, CupcakKe and Jamila Woods.
