Twenty-three-year-old singer-songwriter Anna Wells has been refining her craft for over half of her life. The Essex-based artist released her debut album Circles in 2019, and has written almost one hundred additional songs since. Her prolific nature has paid off with the release of her most recent work, an evocative and powerful pop-rock ballad titled Untouchable.
Written during the first lockdown in 2020 in collaboration with fellow songwriter Julian Rosso, Wells tells us that Untouchable is designed to unify those who have found strength in isolation over the last year, referencing the pre-pandemic concepts of taking the presence of individuals in our lives for granted. These are themes that will deeply resonate with nearly everyone, and the music used to deliver them only serves to elevate them further. This track starts as a pure piano ballad, the keys providing a beautiful and simple backing for Well’s bright and dulcet voice, It’s perhaps the centerpiece of this track, carrying her heartfelt lyrics near-effortlessly. There’s a slow but intentional build across this song, which takes us from sweet and light to driving and powerful, delivering us to a full-band, definitively modern pop-rock sound.
An excellent combination of energy and emotion, Untouchable is a great show of skill and potential from young artist Anna Wells. Come for the gorgeous vocals and catchy, pop-driven chorus, stay because Wells has captivated you with an authentic and truly relatable message. Take a listen to Untouchable below.
