Bathe is a one-woman band by singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Bailey Crone. Bailey plays everything on the song from drums, guitar, bass, to vocals. Her debut single The Silence is lyrically about the feeling of being alone and how it relates to her past history with panic attacks and grieving the loss of friends and loved ones. Written in a mixolydian key, the song’s mood is supposed to be neither happy nor sad. The Silence will appear on Bathe’s debut LP titled Last Looks in 2020. Thematically the song and the album are about loss and the concept of absence that follows it.
