LA-based singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Anna Margo is setting a new standard with latest song You. Equipped with classical piano training and a disarming vocal strength, her music carries a blend of emotional depth and technical finesse. Collaborating with Timbaland after connecting through a TikTok live session, You is a promise of an exciting direction for her music as she prepares for the release of her upcoming EP.
Margo’s latest single is an ode to that unconditional love extended to people you know are doing you no good, and the terminal nature of that relationship, despite the reluctance to part from the unhappiness the person is ultimately causing. Opening with melancholic keys and subtle interference, from the beginning the stage is set for Anna’s lyrical storytelling. Her soulful and heartfelt vocals don’t disappoint when they kick in, melting into the delicate instrumental backdrop, building in intensity as the song progresses to then guide listeners to a serene conclusion. Each note and lyric feels deliberate and purposefully placed to draw out the raw emotion, conveying the bittersweet experience of a love turned sour. From classical masters like Beethoven, Chopin, Bach, and Rachmaninoff to modern-day cinematic composers such as Hans Zimmer and Ramin Djawadi, Anna’s inspired musical palette is rich and varied, meeting beautifully alongside these pop melodies on this track.
Studying at the prestigious Berklee College of Music, it’s no surprise Anna Margo is such a refined musician. Her style and sound has become distinctive to her fans from previous singles Place, Bad Friend, Know You and Something To Lose, earning her masses of streams globally as a result. As the musical partnership between herself and Timbaland continues to thrive with her EP project If You’re Still There on the horizon later this year, we look forward to what is next in store for Anna Margo.
