Tanners is a Brooklyn-based indie-pop singer from Tennessee. Not too long ago, she released “What You’ve Been Waiting For”, a seductive slow-burner from her self-titled debut EP.

Tanners – “What You’ve Been Waiting For”

“I can’t make up my own mind. What if I can’t rewind? Always looking for a distant shore. Now the light is different than before.” – lyrics

“What You’ve Been Waiting For” tells a story from a woman’s point of view. The song finds her walking through a doorway and into a room where her significant other waits.  

What transpires afterward illuminates the room. Time slows down significantly and she closes her eyes. Usually, when she dreams like this, the scenery is painted in black and white.

But on this particular night, there’s a colorful glow in the atmosphere, reminiscent of the morning sun rising, or perhaps, the evening sun setting.
