song: "Bare" - Rosie Carney

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.
