Anjulie’s Self-Titled Debut Out Tomorrow

The years Anjulie spent honing her craft of singing and writing songs are readily apparent on her self-titled debut album. Co-written with her producer and collaborator Jon Levine (of Canadian R&B hit makers the Philosopher Kings), Anjulie sets intensely personal stories about her life, loves, obsessions, and heartbreaks to a glittering genre-blending mix of pop, hip hop, rock, and world rhythms she heard as a child growing up.

The confident and eclectic melange on Anjulie’s album explores a wide range of moods, a sign that she is an artist with a lot of range and versatility. The slinky opening track “Boom,” which debuted #1 on the Billboard dance chart, works a dark, Nancy Sinatra-esque ’60s vibe, while “The Rain” is a sleek, flamenco-flavored urban gem. Anjulie gets steamy on the feverish “The Heat,” the obsessive “Addicted2Me,” and the provocative “Some Dumb Girl,” before entirely switching gears on the uplifting acoustic-driven “Same Damn Thing” and the lovelorn piano ballad “Crazy That Way.” It’s not surprising that Anjulie is as eclectic as it is, as she cops to a host of musical influences, everyone from confessional singer-songwriter Alanis Morissette and the always-enigmatic Annie Lennox, to hip hop mavericks Kanye West and Lauryn Hill.
