Anjulie is a platinum-selling and JUNO award-winning singer/songwriter from Toronto. A new single by her, named Big Bad World, carries such an intriguing tone. I appreciate the idea behind it. The writing deserves high praise. It’s a heavy social commentary on turning a blind eye to the horrors of humanity—ecological collapse, terrorism, school shootings, crippling economic inequality—in a constantly connected, depersonalized, and performative world that’s distracted by shiny new tech, social media, and navel-gazing narcissism. Dan LeMoyne directed the music video that captures the spirit of the song well.
Anjulie’s signature vocal opens Big Bad World, putting the focus on the lyrics immediately. A melodic pop instrumental underpins the production. Perfectly balanced, structured music here. You can check it out below!
