Anjalts is a force to be reckoned with in the indie music scene; Her latest single, "Are U Ok, released on October 13, serves to solidify her audacious artistry. The piece boasts a swirl of pop-rock elements, with features from electrifying guitar riffs and pulsating drums, thus evoking a sense of urgency, and compelling listeners to confront their emotional state.


Immediately captivated by the drum rolls and haunting metal guitar influences, I found the introduction to be one that made me think deeply about the piece. Delving further into the production, elements of darkness are dimmed by the synth elements. Everything quietens down and in come the vocals. Unique, intriguing. A true mix of genres in a swirl of a thriller piece.


The song comes fresh from her expansive 15-song album, "Air to Fire," and her recent single "Walking to the Sun." Marking the fifth release from her upcoming album, 'Bluency,' is a project that promises a mix of alternative soundscapes. With influences ranging from the pop sensibilities of Maroon 5 to the moody undertones of Chemical Romance, "Are U Ok" is a genre-defying release.

What makes Anjalts stand out to the ears of her listeners is her willingness to challenge the expectations of song arrangements. The way that the arrangements weave in and out of each other is refreshing. As a multi-instrumentalist who does everything from songwriting to arrangement, she offers a fully immersive musical experience. Her work was mastered at the iconic Abbey Road Studios in London, and it makes all the difference to the presentation of the piece.


The thematic core of "Are U Ok" is its call for emotional introspection. Anjalts has expressed that the song serves as a personal reminder to check in on her emotional well-being, a sentiment she hopes will resonate with her audience. Further stating that "There is so much we just don’t know, and we will figure it out in time. We will be Ok,” she states, encapsulating the essence of the song.


As we await her upcoming releases, music videos, and tours, one thing remains clear: What is that? You may ask - well, Anjalts is an artist unafraid to push boundaries, both musically and thematically and her work serves as a reminder that sometimes, the most revolutionary act is to ask the simple question: Are U Ok?
