"Anjimile’s long-awaited new record, Colors, comes on the heels of coming to terms with...major life events. The beautiful scope it covers, directly and indirectly, speaks to the affirming yet unnerving process of gradually setting in to your own skin."
- DigBoston, Nina Corcoran
"Colors spotlights the lovability of Anjimile. It is a cohesive and insightful documentation of the perspective of a queer artist...Anjimile is a songbird for voices that are frequently left unheard. And Colors is a body of work that will bring them into the spotlight."
- WERS, Andrew Muccitelli
"On “Colors,” you can hear Anjimile venture tentatively into unexplored vocal territory, pushing gently at the contours of their new voice."
- WBUR, Amelia Mason
"The diversity and inventiveness from song to song has created a beautiful amalgam that has, through its differences, made a concept album more concise and moving than many other artists attempting to do the same explicitly."
- Sound of Boston, Nicole Collins
Colors is an indie pop album that explores the various shades and luminosities of sound. Anjimile's evocative lyricism and honey-smooth vocals shine brightly against a colorful backdrop of spacious
soundscapes and dynamic melodies. From the folk-rock fields of "Green" to the dreamy waters of "Wakanda", each track on Colors vibes confidently in the spirit of exploration and experimentation.
"Colors" was written and recorded at Industry Lab, an eclectic co-working space in Cambridge, MA, as the result of a 3-month artist residency. Its sound is heavily inspired by the remarkably inventive group of engineers, entrepreneurs, scientists, graphic designers, programmers, architects and artists that inhabit the space.

It's generating a huge response, scoring a total of 93 points in meta-critics. AllMusic described the album as "a record that has complex content but is easily and confidently delivered with lyrics and a combination of jazz throngs and exquisite rhythms," and NME gives it a perfect score of five, describing it as a completely flawless record. A record that doesn't always fall on this year's list of albums of 2018 released by many media outlets. jwsmusic
