SINGLE REVIEW: Climb by Anna Weatherup

Australian singer-songwriter Anna Weatherup has just released Climb, a soul-stirring alt-pop mantra about personal struggle and the path back into a place of strength, hope and light. Anna’s extraordinary career has taken her from the heights of nationwide exposure during her stay on The Voice to taking stock during an interim period of self-reflection to becoming a finalist in the prestigious Hollywood Music in Media Awards in 2019. Anna Weatherup discovered her passion for performing when she was only 12 going on to release several single releases and four studio albums, revealing the ambitious nature of her creative process. Anna has now released an extraordinarily poignant alt-pop rock song Climb. The track is the first single to be taken from her forthcoming highly-anticipated album Crossing The Sea. Utilising different genres including rock, country, folk, grunge and gospel, Anna has created a wonderful blend of these styles and come up with a unique sound. Artists such as Johnny Cash, Kenny Rogers, Pearl Jam and Alanis Morissette, have been great sources of inspiration for Anna and this broad spectrum of work is reflected in her own. Although Climb is a huge track, with nicely textured guitar parts, resplendent background vocals and soaring melodic structures, it’s Anna’s enchanting voice which is at the forefront; commanding and engaging. Climb is a strong and multilayered track, and this is easy to understand considering its origins, as Anna has said of the process of writing it, ‘Climb was originally inspired by a friend of mine who was going through a dark time, so I wrote him a song. As I started to dig in and write this track I realized I was also delving into my struggles with anxiety and darker times. It quickly became my new mantra of strength and hope to fight through the deepest of nights. In a nutshell, if you are struggling, keep climbing as you are not alone’. Climb will undoubtedly impress and prove to be a break out track for this amazing artist.
