Infectious dance beats? Let’s groove!
Bay area-based musical creative, Anjali Asha, is a singer and songwriter who started young. Asha has been writing her own songs since she could hold a pen. Her Indo-Fijian and Mexican roots directly influence her love of reggae, Latin, and dance music. Her diverse background is notably reflected in her “sonic choices creating a style all her own with grit, vitality, and rhythms that captivate any crowd.” Asha’s influences also include artists like Amy Winehouse, Kendrick Lamar, Rihanna, and Harry Belafonte. Though she initially struggled to find her voice in the industry, a severe car accident at 19 pushed the artist to co-produce her debut album. This album, and more, are available on Spotify, YouTube, and Apple Music. Anjali Asha’s latest drop is the dance single “Composure.”
“Composure” is sonically charged and ready to go in any and every direction. The song’s message feels like a goodbye, however. Lyrics like “See, I’m trying to keep it down, yeah / I’m trying to stick around, but my sanity’s left too exposed, yeah” and “I know it’s wrong, but I’m just too far gone / baby, I’m too far gone” are delivered with instantly commanding vocals that nicely complement the tune’s hypnotic backdrop. While it seems like a final message, it doesn’t have to be. And even if it is, this song is crazy enough to send you out of the club happy. So, press play and try to keep your “Composure” while you’re dancing the night away.
