"Premiere: Feeling Infinite with Anie Delgado's Radiant Galaxy"

What gives you strength and lights your fire? For some, it’s people; for others, it’s an activity or work. No matter what gets you going, we can all connect to the elation of inner fulfillment and realized purpose – the joy of knowing you’re exactly where you’re meant to be. Anie Delgado indulges in a moment of serene euphoria on her new single “Galaxy,” a buoyant indie pop fire burning ever brighter.

Galaxy - Anie Delgado

Under the violet lights
We are safe.
we freak out, we let go,
We’re free.
Cause we are animals.
We are wild.
We are moving,
Atwood Magazine is proud to be premiering “Galaxy,” Anie Deglado’s first single of 2019. Produced by PJ Bianco (Jonas Brothers, Demi Lovato, ARIZONA) with Nick Lee, “Galaxy” is one of the first full looks into Delgado’s nascent artistry: Growing up between Miami and Melbourne, FL and having graduated from NYU with a degree in the performing arts, Delgado brings a poetic bent to her emotive and impassioned “indie” pop music. After parting ways with New York-based indie experimental rock band Dr. Medicine, Delgado began working with a slew of producers and self-released the songs “Average Joe,” “Say It,” and “Solstice” between 2017 and 2018.

While these tracks accentuate Delgado’s profound vocal strength and her wide range, they pale in comparison to the energy, story, and sleek instrumental work in “Galaxy.” Delgado’s first release since relocating to Los Angeles in 2018 finds her buried deep in a moody, electronic-driven soundscape. We hear her spread her wings and fly as she embraces individuality and togetherness in a highly connective chorus:

I don’t wanna complicate things tonight.
I just wanna sip on my pride.
Yeah, we’re distant stars but we’re intertwined.
And we react so differently.
We’re a galaxy.
When we’re in sync.
It’s a beautiful thing.
And we just let it be
To happen naturally
Baby you and me
We’re a galaxy.
I don’t feel alone drifting through the sky
We’re a galaxy —
I just feel at home with you by my side.

“I was on a bender of bad romances after breaking up with my first love,” the artist recounts. “I never seemed satisfied. I’d either lose myself in a new fling or lose interest. When I was at my lowest, one of my best friends reminded me that everything I needed was already inside of me: That I was my own galaxy. That revolution changed my life. I spent the next year learning independence and working on myself til out of the blue, I met someone who stopped me in my tracks. It scared me because I felt like I still had work to do on myself, but for the first time I understood that I didn’t need to lose my identity and independence to be with someone. Like me, he was his own galaxy: Strong, independent, and vibrant. I felt like together we could do anything. Be anything.”

She continues, “The conversation my friend and I had always resurfaces, but with my growth it takes on [a] different meaning. I feel like a galaxy when I’m amongst people who radiate love, high vibes, and unconditional support. My friends are my galaxy just as much as my love is. Most of all humanity is a galaxy. We are all so different and so complex and so capable and when we are moving in perfect sync we can do anything. ‘Galaxy’ is that feeling you get when you’re dancing with strangers, dancing with your friends, dancing with your love, or dancing with yourself. Galaxy is a song about finding what makes you feel infinite.”

‘Galaxy’ is a song about finding what makes you feel infinite.
You stop me in my tracks.
We collide,
We hold on,
and I can hardly breathe.
Cause I just saw you here
When we glide —
I don’t wanna leave.
I just wanna stare into your desert eyes.
But I’m feelin’ another vibe.
I promise I’ll leave with you at the end of the night.
But I just need to unwind–
Intimate and universal, “Galaxy” invites all to join in Anie Delgado’s reverie. Stream the new single exclusively on Atwood Magazine, and get to know this exciting fresh face through our interview below.

We’re a galaxy.
When we’re in sync.
It’s a beautiful thing.
And we just let it be
To happen naturally
Baby you and me
We’re a galaxy.
Listen: “galaxy” – Anie Delgado

Anie Delgado: When I started working with PJ Bianco, he gave me the task of writing with no genre in mind. In the year before I met him, I had written and collaborated with a number of other producers who had me write to a brand or sound they saw for me and PJ recognized this. He wanted to strip my writing process down so I could write something truly genuine. I think I sent him like ten ideas recorded on voice memos on my phone with my guitar. “Galaxy” was the first song I sent him and we both gravitated toward it. Being a perfectionist, I kept writing and writing but I couldn’t stop thinking about that record. I was at Coachella watching people dance at Four Tet’s set and it just solidified what Galaxy meant to me. And then I was like… That’s it. That’s the song. We cut the song in a couple of hours and I loved the production PJ and co-producer Nick Lee brought to the table so I decided to release it.

Delgado: I have a lot to say but I’m finding out how to cut through the noise and bring to the surface what really matters most to me. It’s an interesting balance between learning to be just precious enough with my music and thoughts. I tend to write a lot of emotional things lately which could just be who I am, but I want to try everything. I’ve been challenging myself to write at least one song a day. I have a notebook that I keep like a diary and once I day I sit down and just write whatever I’m feeling.

I’m at a really happy and exciting time in my life and some artists would argue that it’s harder to write during those periods, but I am really loving listening to the nuances of what I’m feeling. Life is never really one thing and I think this duality of life effects my music big time. I like to play the devil’s advocate.

I was a super angsty teen and I depended on music to process my feelings and confront things so I hope that my music will help other young people understand what they’re feeling too and deal with their feelings in a healthy way. I’m excited to break into the mainstream pop market but I’m having a lot of fun finding what makes me weird and unique and making those things a part of my music.

Delgado: Pop was always the goal but because there is so much out there, it was really important to me to find what was unique about me as an artist and run with it in my music. I think PJ’s challenge to just write, plain and simple without worrying about style or genre played a big hand in being able to hone in on my sound. It seems ironic, but when I wasn’t worried about my style is exactly when I found it. I found out that I write really etherial, vibey lyrics and from there we developed the production style to match the vibe and feeling of what I had simply written on my guitar.

Delgado: Finding the right team and the right sound. It’s so tough because people see you and they see all of these things you could do — which is really flattering and awesome, but after hearing so much feedback it’s easy to lose sight of who you are. You have to know who you are to make good music so it’s important to find a team who compliments and celebrates that. It’ll always be grateful to Jeff Gordon for introducing me to PJ Bianco. Right away, it was an amazing match. PJ not only listened to what I wanted, he pushed me to discover myself and my sound on my own. PJ also brought Nick Lee onto the project which was another major blessing. They both bring so much to the table.

Delgado: I want to release music as frequently as I can. I’m fortunate to have an audience on Instagram who have been asking and asking for new music and I am super excited to finally deliver on this after taking the year to develop! Performing has always been my first love so with new music I’m hoping for some awesome performance opportunities. I’d love to play some festivals next year and collaborate with other artists I love and respect. - Atwood Magazine

"Interview: Anie Delgado"

Hi Anie, welcome to VENTS! How have you been?
Amazing! This is such an exciting time for me.
Can you talk to us more about your latest single “GALAXY”?
Yes! I wrote Galaxy one afternoon on my guitar but the idea had been floating around in my head for a while. I had just met with PJ Bianco for the first time and he challenged me to “bleed on the page” and write something really real and raw. I’m at a really happy time in my life and as much as I love to write sad songs, I just took what I was feeling and ran with it.
Did any event in particular inspired you to write this song?
It came from one of those late night pep talks from a good friend, when I needed it the most. I had just gotten dumped on my birthday and my friend was like “STOP. You don’t need him. You’re a galaxy. You’ve got everything you need.”
I carried that idea with me like a mantra and really loved my independence, but when I met someone who totally stopped me in my tracks, I realized that I didn’t have to lose myself to someone else to be with them. People and relationships can be so draining, but it’s magical when you find that person that fits right in with you. Flowing around each other intertwining, but independent.
So when PJ challenged me to write something really raw, I sat down that afternoon and wrote the majority of the song. A week later, I was at Coachella watching people dance and I realized that we’re all kind of a galaxy. Really it’s about whatever makes you feel infinite and complete. It’s about those perfect moments when everything is in sync Sometimes that’s through self-love, sometimes it’s friend-love, sometimes it’s romantic-love, and sometimes it’s just loving a total stranger’s vibe.
How was the filming process and experience behind the video?
It was so much fun. I had the BEST crew. I’m really type A so it’s hard for me to let others take control, but I really wanted everyone’s creativity to thrive on this project so I just put together an inspiration board and prepped the team with my vision and let them create from there. They really came through.
The director Brandon Buczek is truly a champion at pulling together amazing people and communicating the vision. It was so much fun to see things unfold throughout the (really long haha) day. Everything was so creative from my makeup to my wardrobe to the cinematography to the direction and so on. A lot of people who worked on the project were personal friends and it just reminded me what a cool place LA is. Everyone is so uniquely talented and I love projects where that shines through.
Honestly, the toughest part was waiting for the visual effects because I was so excited. The VFX artist, James Elijah Aguilar made my dreams come true and took me to space! He’s crazy talented. I can’t wait to share the video.
How was the recording and writing process?
Easier than I thought! I sat down one afternoon and wrote the song on my guitar. I had a really great feeling about it from the beginning because of how easily the song came to me. The lyrics unfolded because I just knew the story I was telling and what I was trying to say.
On the day that I went into the studio to record, I had worked myself up beforehand and was ready to be in the studio for hours and hours, but it only took a few. PJ is so amazing at developing new artists — he brought really great ideas to the table. He and co-writer Nick Lee immediately got the vibe that the song needed to be and helped me make it happen.
What was it like to work with PJ Bianco and how did that relationship develop?
I love working with PJ because he’s really straight forward. You don’t always get that in this industry so I consider him a gem. I met PJ through Jeff Gordon. Jeff was helping me find the right producer to work with and suggested PJ. I immediately loved his vibe. He was just like, “What do you want to do?” He was really focused on starting from my own roots and foundation and building from there so he challenged me to go home and write something really raw on my guitar. He told me not to worry about production or style or brand. That was really freeing. I feel like I was able to revisit how I originally started writing music – simply on my guitar. Since then, I’ve been writing some of the best music I’ve written so I really owe that to his advise.
Even though first impressions were great, you never really know how it’s going to go down in the studio, but it was so easy to work with him and after we recorded “Galaxy” we made plans to do more songs. Now he’s helping to develop my sound. I’m really grateful.
How much did he get to influence the song?
He spearheaded the production for sure. When I got to the studio, I played the song for him on my guitar and he and Nick started creating the track. He really wanted it to be vibey and sexy. He has a great ear and found the perfect key where the intricacies of my voice could shine through. He also helped coach me on the delivery which was really important. I used to sing classical music and pop is a totally different game. I learned so much working with him.
What role does LA play in your music?
LA has been so important. I was living in NYC beforehand and loved it there but didn’t feel like the heart and soul of the industry was there. I took the leap to move to LA to meet producers and creatives in the industry and that’s exactly what happened. Also, it’s nice to be out of the NYC hustle, I feel like I have far more time to write now which is amazing because I feel like artists should write every day if they can.
How do you go on blending and balancing your 2000s love with the 90s angst?
It’s funny because even though those two time periods are close in proximity the attitude is really different. I love the pop music of the early 2000s because I grew up with it, but that rebellious, 90s angst is kind of just part of my personality. I think the 2000s taught me what solid pop writing is and the 90s grunge I listen to taught me how to make it cool.
How does your Latin roots influences your writing as a whole?
I think the biggest influences from latin music are rhythm and love. I’m a romantic and a lot of the latin music I grew up on is really soulful and romantic. I think that shines through in subject matter. Besides that, I always want to make people dance when I write so I try and sneak in some latin rhythms whenever I can. I wrote a song in “spanglish” not too long ago. I’d love to write in spanish more often. I love my heritage and my latin fans are so sweet on Instagram so it would be really fun to include that even more in my music.
Does the new single mean we can expect a new material – how’s that coming along?
Absolutely. This is a really clearly defined beginning for me. I am writing every single day and have plans to go back to the studio at the end of the month. I’m really lucky to have such a supportive community online that always asks for more new music, so that’s it: game face on, I’m making new music every day.
Any tentative release date or title in mind?
Nothing specific! I have a notebook of so many songs, but there’s no clear front-runner yet. I can say that releases will be frequently. I love working with PJ so I’m ready to just make music all of the time.
Any plans to hit the road?
I sometimes book shows when I travel anyways so you may see me in Miami or New York City. Touring is my absolute dream though so I am working hard to write some amazing songs soon. I have fans that reach out to me on Instagram from all over the world so it would be really special to meet them in person.
What else is happening next in Anie Delgado’s world?
I’m playing a show on July 27th at The Ivar in Hollywood! I’m really excited for that. Performing is my first love and I’ve been dying during this recording process to get on stage. Other than that, I’m just really focused on writing and creating and whatever opportunities that brings. I’d love to collaborate with other artists in the near future so that’s on my radar for this fall. - Vents Magazine


Newcomerin Anie Delgado, die aus Miami stammt und nun in Los Angeles lebt, nimmt einen bei ihrer neuesten emotionalen Single in die höheren Sphären der „Galaxy“ mit. Entsprechend verträumt, beruhigend und überaus stimmungsvoll kommt das neue Chillout-Werk der Sängerin und Schauspielerin auch daher und macht seinem Titel alle Ehre.

Produziert wurde es von PJ Bianco – der unter anderem schon mit Demi Lovato, den Jonas Brothers, ARIZONA sowie Parade of Lights zusammengearbeitet hat – und Nick Lee.

Ein spannender Mix von Latin Music à la Gloria Estefan bis hin zum Popsound der Beach Boys und zu guter Letzt Rock à la Led Zeppelin begleitete Anie Delgados Erwachsenwerden. Ihre Leidenschaft für das Songwriting begann schließlich, als sie in der Grundschule eine Gitarre erhielt. Als musikalische Einflüsse zählt die Sängerin dabei Künstlerinnen wie Halsey, Madonna und JoJo auf.

Ihre neueste Single „Galaxy“ gewährt einen tiefen Einblick. Sie handelt nämlich von dem Gefühl der inneren Erfülltheit wenn man weiß, dass man genau da ist, wo man sein möchte. Dazu erklärte die Musikerin gegenüber dem ‚Atwood’-Magazin: „[…] ,Galaxy’ ist dieses Gefühl, das man bekommt, wenn man mit Fremden, mit deinen Freunden, mit deinem Liebsten oder mit sich selbst tanzt. [Er] ist ein Song über das Finden von dem, was einem das Gefühl von Grenzenlosigkeit gibt.“ Sollte man seinen Ohren unbedingt gönnen! - Music All-New

"Anie Delgado talks about Latin & 90s grunge influences, working with PJ Bianco, and guitar"

Having roots in Miami, Florida, currently Los Angeles based performer and guitar player, Anie Delgado was influenced by the culture she grew up in, specifically Latin music, with hints of late 90s grunge and pop queens of the early 2000s. She found her passion while attending The American Musical and Dramatic Academy in New York City. She’s currently collaborating with chart-topper PJ Bianco (Avicii, Arizona, and Jonas Brothers), and has a new music video coming out soon titled, “Galaxy.”

Read on to find out what Anie had to say about her influences, the culture she grew up in, her introduction to the guitar, and her love of playing it.

You grew up inspired by Latin music, late 90s grunge, and pop queens of early 2000s. How have each of these genres shaped your songwriting and performing?

I think Latin rhythm is ingrained into my soul. I love a beat that I can dance to, and I think that is reflected in my music even though it doesn’t fall right under the Latin genre. I love to tie 90s grunge into the way I dress and perform on stage. I guess I never lost my angst. I feel like growing up watching all of the queens of the early 2000s really ingrained a certain kind of confidence and prowess in me when I perform. I also was inspired by their songwriting. I’ve always loved Taylor Swift’s knack for telling a really specific story that millions can relate to but from her own unique perspective. I strive for that in my writing.

You also play guitar…what was your first introduction to guitar?

When I was in elementary school, I saw the “Freaky Friday” remake, and I thought Lindsay Lohan’s character was SO cool. I had to be like her, so I asked my parents for a guitar, so thanks LiLo.

You recently relocated to the LA area to work with PJ Bianco. How did that collaboration come about, and what has been your writing and recording process like so far?

I actually initially moved here to work with another producer, to be closer to the kind of energy I wanted to collaborate with. He ended up moving back to the east coast, so although we were working together remotely, I feel like having the distance between us made it harder to break ground.

Meeting PJ came at the exact right moment and was such a great surprise. I started working with manager Jeff Gordon this January, and he immediately started reaching out to his network of producers to see who would meet with me. That landed me a meeting with PJ. I was so nervous for that meeting. I spent the entire car ride listening to every song I could find that PJ worked on. I really wanted to work with him. When I met him, two things happened: 1) I realized he’s super cool. I immediately felt a vibe with him and realized I had nothing to be nervous about, and 2) he really got me. I don’t remember exactly what he said, but at one point, I felt like he was staring into my soul and then just calmed all of the questions and insecurities you have as a new artist. He was just like “hey, this is going to be good, just write some honest music and this will be great.”

The coolest thing about the process is it took me back to my roots. PJ gave me homework to go home and write some genuine, honest, raw songs on my guitar without worrying about genre, brand, or style, and we’d go from there. He told me not to be afraid to suck, and so I did. “Galaxy” was actually the first song I wrote and sent to PJ. I sent him ten other songs, but I think we both knew immediately that was the one.

The recording process was so easy. I was hyper-prepared and kind of expected to be in the studio for hours, but we cut it fairly quickly. PJ and co-producer Nick Lee listened to me play the song on my guitar. We adjusted the key a little and discussed style and laid my vocals down. I had a cut pretty much the next day.

You have a new music video coming up for your single “Galaxy.” What was the vision and filming process like for it?

Yes! I’m so excited for it. I’m a really visual person, so music videos are fun for me. We really wanted to tap into the spirit of the song. “Galaxy” is about those connections in life that make you feel infinite and those perfect moments that you’re in pure euphoria because everything is in perfect sync. I played the song for director Brandon Buczek, and he pitched me an idea and I loved it. The video really plays with how these connections make really normal moments feel out of this world. Brandon is really talented at finding the poetic, beautiful nuances in relationships and reality, so I knew he was the man for the job.

Is an EP and/or album on the way?

I’m dying to tell a full story on an album / EP, but we’re sticking to singles in the immediate future. It’s really important to me to keep the songs coming for my fans. Singles allow me to release more often. I think I can predict at least an EP in the next year though.

Guitar Gear

What kind of guitar do you play, and is there a guitar you’d like to play but haven’t yet?

I played the goofiest guitar ever for the longest time. It was a hot pink acoustic-electric guitar. It was a birthday gift from my parents in high school but I recently upgraded to a Yamaha Acoustic Electric. Her name is Spicy. I really want to get a bad-a** electric guitar for my live shows. I grew up playing Fenders, so probably a Fender of some kind.

What strings do you use?

I use Ernie Ball reinforced strings usually. Always metal.

Mics, pedals and pics?

Because of the nature of my music, I don’t play live that often and therefore I don’t use pedals. If I do, I usually just use Ableton Live. I’m a weirdo and don’t use a pic when I play for the most part.

Fun Questions

Who was your first concert, and who has been your favorite thus far?

Hilary Duff! I saw her three years in a row as a kid then didn’t go to another show until college. It was super weird considering how much I love music. I just saw Maggie Rogers at Coachella, and I wept the entire show. She’s so special. Tame Impala would be a close second.

What was your first album on CD and/or vinyl?

I was a die-hard Hilary Duff fan if you can’t already tell, so the first album I remember buying was Metamorphosis. I also religiously played The Beach Boys in my car in high school because I got a VW Beetle and it just felt right. I got into vinyl in college and immediately gravitated toward Radiohead and Grizzly Bear. They sound great on vinyl.

Which five albums and/or artists would you not want to be without?

Heard it In A Past Life – Maggie Rogers
Golden Hour – Kasey Musgraves
OK Computer – Radiohead
Red – Taylor Swift (for nostalgia- I still blast this and sing at the top of my lungs like I did in high school).
Led Zeppelin III – Led Zeppelin

Name your top three female artists who have been the most influential in your music and performing?

Beth Gibbons from Portishead – I love her songwriting and versatility.
Taylor Swift – Her songwriting was really influential for me at the beginning.
Ariana Grande – I love her energy on stage and how she interacts with her fans.

Do you have a guilty music and/or entertainment pleasure?

Yes! I’m obsessed with Ariana Grande. I mean her music is good, but it’s just funny to me because I’m not the type to fangirl and I fangirl SO hard for her. I lost it when I finally got to see her live at Coachella.

Galaxy- Single - July 2019



Anie Delgado was born in Miami, FL and grew up in a small beach town called Melbourne, FL. Anie got her first guitar in 4th grade and all through her adolescence would write songs documenting her life. A few weeks after high school, Anie moved to NYC to study at The American Musical and Dramatic Academy. Anie immersed herself in multi-disciplinary performing in New York City. While her career in musical theatre progressed, Anie continued to be drawn to songwriting and music. She joined an experimental rock band and gigged with them until about a year later she decided to leave the band and musical theatre to pursue a solo career as an artist. Anie moved to Los Angeles in 2018 and soon later wrote her first single “Galaxy.” She recorded it with producer PJ Bianco and released it in July 2019.

Anie’s writing process starts at her guitar. Sensory-loaded lyrics and acoustic chords are the foundation for her songs that are developed into vintage-feeling bops through collaboration with her producing partners. The synths in her production feels nostalgic while the vocal production feels futuristic. Anie’s poetic verses pair with catchy hooks. Anie grew up inspired by the songwriting of Taylor Swift. Anie also grew up listening to disco and classic rock thanks to her parents’ influence. Led Zeppelin and Abba were the soundtrack to her childhood and elements of that inspiration shine through the nostalgia of Anie’s up to date pop.
