Climber

"My first hint that Climber might be something special was when members dragged their upright piano all the way from home for a show. Initially, I had been turned off by the band's CD art-from the look of the sterile stick figures pressed on the package, I figured they were some trendy techno band-but, on the recommendation of a pal, I asked them to play the Doug Fir. From the first notes, I was arrested by the strains of orchestral rock. Climber's blend of lush, rich melodies, delicate piano lines, extraordinarily well-thought-out arrangements, emotive vocals and an overall coating of fancily effected guitar made me lose track of myself. On occasion they do echo such commercial stalwarts as Radiohead and maybe even Coldplay. But given a little time in the creativity incubator, Climber will emerge triumphant, with both its sound, its CD art, and its vision refined, ready to turn on more than just Portland's ears." -Alicia Rose, booker, Doug Fir Lounge (Portland, OR)
