ANJIMILE: HOW TO SAY F*CK IT WITH FLYING COLORS
"Anjimile’s long-awaited new record, Colors, comes on the heels of coming to terms with...major life events. The beautiful scope it covers, directly and indirectly, speaks to the affirming yet unnerving process of gradually setting in to your own skin."
BOSTON SINGER-SONGWRITER MINES BLISSFUL MELODIES FROM MELANCHOLY THOUGHTS
"Lyrically speaking, the songs on 'Colors' feel a little more earthbound. Such newfound directness may be thanks to all that therapy. 'I am more confident in my writing now because I have a greater understanding of the way that I relate to my own life,' Anjimile says. “Because I can figure out how I feel, just in general, it's easier for me to write that down when the inspiration comes to write a song.'”
BANDS YOU SHOULD KNOW - ANJIMILE
"In troubled times, it is especially heartening to see a queer musician thriving and building up a community. And with an abundance of raw talent—and years of performing under their belt—Anjimile is an artist to watch on their fast-moving journey to the top."
SOUND OF BOSTON
ALBUM REVIEW: COLORS BY ANJIMILE
"The new Anjimile album explores themes of change, loss of innocence, and the trans experience, all the while blending sounds and genres, creating a piece that takes the listener on almost the same journey of confusion and self-discovery."
ANJIMILE AND THE COLORS OF PRIDE
"Colors feels like the album that will escalate their popularity into alternative/indie stardom..Anjimile is an up-and-coming powerhouse of an artist that you should keep an eye on. Their lyrics are relatable and empowering for queer people who often share common experiences. Anjimile is a songbird for voices that are frequently left unheard. And Colors is a body of work that will bring them into the spotlight."
INTRODUCING WBUR'S FAVORITE MASSACHUSETTS ENTRY TO THE NPR TINY DESK CONTEST
"In the end, our panel chose a performance that doesn’t so much wow as enchant. “1978,” by the Boston singer-songwriter Anjimile, is one of those songs that becomes more miraculous the longer you listen. It is clever in its simplicity, sublime in its quietude."
TOP 10 LOCAL ACTS ON THE RISE
"It’s happening suddenly for the self-labeled “queer & trans songmaker,” whose video submission was judged WBUR’s favorite Massachusetts entry in the NPR Tiny Desk Concert contest last month, earning Anjimile a slot at the free Aug. 18 Wicked Good Festival on Boston Common with Bleachers, Buffalo Tom and Juliana Hatfield."
ANJIMILE JOURNEYS FROM 'IPSWICH' TO 'WAKANDA' ON NEW EP 'COLORS'
"Anjimile's timing this summer couldn’t be any more perfect. After being named the Massachusetts winner of NPR Music’s Tiny Desk contest and scoring a slot on on this summer’s Wicked Good Festival, the Boston ambient folk artist has dropped their new album Colors just over a week later."
