Anjimile is a first-generation Malawian-American who grew up in the suburbs of Richardson, Texas. Their experiences with racism, homophobia and xenophobia in the deep south form the basis of their radical queer politics. The crux of their musical output is a gooey center of emotionality and tenderness informed by the power of their intersectional identities.
A staple in the Boston indie music scene since their debut EP 'In the Garden' in 2012, Anjimile's eclectic forays into ambient folk, indie rock and electro pop are bound together by an incredibly haunting and otherworldly singing voice. Anjimile is currently signed to Human Nature Records, a Boston-based independent label, and two tracks ("Golden Hands" and "To Meet You There") from their most recent EP 'Good Boy' were featured in the independent film Anything (2017) starring John Carroll Lynch, Maura Tierney and Matt Bomer.
Their musical influences include Sufjan Stevens, Lauryn Hill, Born Ruffians, Radiohead, TV on the Radio, and Real Estate.
Anjimile identifies as queer/trans/gender non-conforming and uses they/them or he/him pronouns.
