Nearing the end of a 40+ date tour across Canada, UK indie-folk singer-songwriter Holly Rees has released her anthemic single Getting By.
Holly Rees is a storyteller of her own soul. Her greatest gift is that she seems to write about our souls too. With “Getting By,” a single as rocking as it is reflective, Holly hones in on the see-sawing, cyclic nature of our lives – the way we’re given a ceaseless onslaught of times both good and bad. Life is no match for Holly Rees, though. She’ll challenge it right back.
“This is a song about struggling with mental health – how things can be really good and really bad at once, and ultimately how sometimes just getting through it is all you can do, and that’s okay,” Holly says. “Sometimes it’s okay to just survive. The tide will always come back in.” A peppy middle-finger-up to depression, “Getting By” is Holly Rees as we’ve always known her, stellar in both self-awareness and sonics. It’s a next-level singalong.
