Bathe Alone – In Deep

Bathe Alone, formally known as Bathe, is the Dream Pop one-woman solo project of multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter Bailey Crone based out of Atlanta, Georgia. Bailey plays everything on the project from drums, guitar, bass, to vocals and aims to create songs you can “lay on the floor and stare at the ceiling to”.

“In Deep” is an 80’s inspired Dream Pop anthem that will appear on the upcoming LP “Last Looks”. It’s got a jam section that’s inspired by the chorused-out guitar tone in Lizzo’s Juice, but on steroids. By the second verse, the bass guitar is completely replaced by an octave jumping JX-3P bass synth to kick you right in your 80’s. I wanted this song to be an unapologetic song in it’s aesthetic and even in the lyrics. Lyrically, the song is about a relationship that has been brought to fruition only to be deteriorated, and what it feels like to lose everything that’s been worked for. Depending on if you hear the song in first person or in third person, the lyrics can be completely spiteful, or self-loathing. But that’s what I love about writing in the vague, is it allows the listener to chose which side to put themselves on in the story.

Lyrics:

Don’t bring your whole world in here
She says nothing
How can you pretend that we
Aren’t in deep

Hide in your old memories
You set aside
For that one day you are clearly
Left behind

Don’t bring your whole world in here
She says nothing
How can you pretend that we
Aren’t in deep
