Annahstasia has something special. An artist of rare precision and intensity, the LA-based singer shared her transformative ‘Sacred Bull’ project in 2019. Reminiscent of the greats – think Nina Simone, Janis Joplin – she blended R&B tropes with classic elements.
Catching the ear of Clash favourite Raveena, Annahstasia continued working on solo endeavours. Much more will come in the next 12 months, but she inaugurates this fresh era with new single ‘Untamed’.
A wonderful, truly bewitching piece of songwriting, it’s stark, a return to her roots. Annahstasia dips into the music that first lit up her soul, and uses this as a canvas to draw something fresh on.
“Those were the first musicians that I felt lended their voice to their music and not the music to their voice,” she explains.
A beautiful return, you can listen to ‘Untamed’ below.
