Anjalts’ Haunting New Acoustic Ballad


Los Angeles based singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist producer Anjalts dropped her debut single in 2020. Since then, the prolific young producer has produced a deep catalog of thought-provoking, genre-bending alternative music. Her sound blends elements of modern and classic alt-pop, rock, dark-pop, and dark wave vibes. 

Regular readers of The Static Dive have followed Anjalts’ musical journey for the past three years. Throughout that time she released a series of captivating singles while working toward the release of her debut album Air to Fire in 2023. Immediately after the record’s release she began work on LP #2.

“The Was a Man” is the brand new single from Anjalts, released worldwide via all major streaming services on February 16, 2024. Ambient synths open the track in a dark ambient mood as the singer steps to the mic with acoustic guitar in hand. Set in a melancholy minor-key scene, she offers the tragic allegory of a soldier who returns home from war to find that all he knew before is now gone. As the song progresses, our hero struggles to find a purpose.
