Review: A.N.J.A.’s single “A-Bomb” – Release date June 10, 2022
Can the album or single title tell you what kind of music to expect form an artist? Certainly, and Belfast-based artist A.N.J.A. proves it very efficiently with her latest single titled ‘A-Bomb.’
Post punk horror surf rock is the name of the game here, A.N.J.A. covers the wide ground that includes artists old and new – Queens of the Stone Age, Masters of Reality, The Velvet Underground, Iggy and the Stooges and PJ Harvey.
A.N.J.A. actually started out as a busker in the streets of Belfast in 2018 she has been on a steady trajectory and since her first ever song release in late 2019 and has played various shows on renowned stages of Northern Ireland’s capital.
As far as this single is concerned, A.N.J.A. explains:
A-Bomb” is inspired by real life predators and power imbalances. The lyrics are a journey through dirty cityscapes and outskirts of depraved humanity. The song dances around the inevitability of human decay. Crime lingering around every corner.
It’s a criticism of messed up humanity, oppression, and danger within a superficial society where the incapability’s of law enforcement and failed justice systems are ubiquitous and grinding.
