Anne Steele – “Love Can Take Us There”

anne steele

Anne Steele wrote the effervescent and upbeat “Love Can Take Us There” after the Pulse night club tragedy this past June. On the track, she pursues a “love trumps hate” ideology that firmly shows the LGBT community as, if anything, coming closer together and cherishing the power of love after the attack. With a bubbly synth-pop stylistic approach that reminds nicely of Erasure and Girls Aloud, Steele’s soaring vocals work nicely around a conventional yet hook-y array of synth pads and handclap percussion. Alongside Stephony Smith and Shane Stevens, she created this track to celebrate “love and life.” With all proceeds from this track being donated to the OneOrlando Fund in support of the victims and their families, it’s fun to listen to regardless and that provides an added benefit.
