Anna Barnes Over
Anna Barnes has graced us with her new single, contemporary R&B delight 'Over' which is her second release of 2020.
'Over' is a funky R&B track with a jazz influence, paired with a banging contemporary beat. Anna's breathtaking vocals could easily be compared to a young Amy Winehouse with her raw and powerful tone. This track is pure and polished with unique harmonies and immaculate lyrics. A timeless and effortless classic of the future.
"This song is really personal to me, letting myself free of a bunch of old feelings."
Based in Atlanta, Georgia, Anna Barnes is an artist who captures a rare quality - a timeless and weathered vocal that carries echoes of some of pop cultures most recognisable female voices.

When you go away -remington ft. anna barnes
Remington pairs up with Anna Barnes on his latest single, “When You Go Away”. This track features a light production that elevates the vocal layers, especially the Anna Barnes’ harmonized choruses. Remington’s voice continues to stand out, especially with this style of hip hop/rap. You can actually hear how his voice changes over the song, getting slowly more fed up and frustrated towards the end of the song. The production lets Remington and Anna showcase what they really have. It’s there, but it doesn’t overpower what these artists are trying to accomplish. To me, I hear a boiling point approaching within the lyrics and tone of this song. This is iterated at the end of the song when the production just releases control and holds nothing back. Anna's voice creates this dream-like experience with echoing harmonies and a strong disposition of slowly drifting away. The story being told creates a path with many different avenues to go down, noticing which ones have been heavily traveled. I believe Remington isn't talking about someone else here with lyrics like "Trust me I'll be fine..". The song serving as somewhat as a reassurance, even though he might not be able to convince them completely. I am excited to hear more from Remington, as I've liked the last releases from the Dallas artist.
Originally from Hilton Head Island, South Carolina Anna started her music career playing late night cover gigs in bars. Eventually, with the inspiration of learning how to play the guitar and piano, she began to write and develop her own music. Moving to New Orleans in 2018 to go to school at the University of Loyola New Orleans, she now study popular and commercial music. Majoring in her craft has inspired her to release music as her first single Girls debuted in November of 2018. Girls has been compared to the writing styles of J Cole and Alicia Keys.
