There are moments in music in which you feel privileged, as if the artist is finally sharing the reveal of some big secret, or they're letting you in to a memory or period of personal significance. On Rosie Carney's single "Bare" it feels as if the singer is telling you everything. True to its name, "Bare" is a track of stark instrumentals, only a simple guitar pattern backing Carney as she sings of a time when she was left "broken/smashed like a glass that was dropped on the floor." Her vocals barely rise above a whisper, lingering for certain notes, and retreating again to pause before continuing her story. The track is gorgeous and serene, keeping its pacing and mood until a sudden rush of piano. In that instant the single truly soars, Carney weaving a beautifully haunting portrait of her innermost emotions.
