Coming from Atlanta, Anji Kaizen is here to rock’n’roll without holding back any punches!

She tapped into the punk-rock essence and pulled out a big chunk of it, fused it with her musicality and gave us her latest single “Blink”.

“Blink” is a huge sounding pop-punk-rock experience…

This is Anji’s biggest release to date…and it definitely sounds the part, it sounds big.

…the song took me back to the pure gold times of the emo-punk-rock scene of the 90s…

I feel like I’m in a swirl of nostalgia, with Blink182, Avril Lavigne and Paramore revolving around me in a dream-like world…

…but do I like it? I absolutely love it.

Anji’s emotion, energy and love are very obvious in “Blink”, whether musically, lyrically or from a vocal performance perspective, I personally feel like this is a labor of love anyway you look at it.

..so, why don’t we get into the nitty gritty side of things, dive deep into Anji Kaizen’s latest single “Blink”…and feel that experience?

“Blink” starts out with a perfect buildup, instruments coming in one after the other, each instrument going easy on us in the beginning…

Guitars riffing with little grit on them…

Drums are just putting in some kicks…

Some tambourine percussion…

…then the drums will jump and explode into an awesome fill that will transport us into the emo-punk golden age…and everything sounds huge!

This is the chorus…powerful.

I also want to add that the song’s chord progression has that emo punk rock to it, it has that one chord that just captures you and makes you wait for it to play again…

The way the song uses stops is also awesome, that happens at one point in the song and it changes the whole feeling and energy to it, makes you on your toes…love that…and, let’s not forget…would everything be complete without a guitar solo? NO! 

The guitar solo comes in at the right time, around the song’s last third…and that burst of energy acts like a jolt of electricity in an already energetic song.

Anji kept the energy levels high across the whole track…

If you are looking to boost your energy levels, you are in the right place and the right time.

Anji, we wish you all the best in the world, you deserve it and more.

Cheers!
