If there is any justice in the world, 2021 will be huge for Anna Leone. As much as we loved "Once" earlier this month, her latest single has elevated our budding fandom. "Still I Wait" is a powerful, contemplative song. Leone uses her vocals and minimal instrumentation to create this lush, fully formed song that is impossible not to be completely enamored with. Sure, the song includes guitar, piano, and strings, but they're used just enough to help give "Still I Wait" structure. The song is focused on Leone's vocals, with good reason. Starting off as mostly a folk song, it builds impossibly slowly to something that's not quite folk and definitely not pop. It's a beautiful song from a new-to-us artist that we can't wait to hear more from.
