After a stunning rendition of 'Gypsy Queen' in our Rave On, Van Morrison series, Rosie Carney is back with 'Bones' – a minimalist take on a classic Radiohead tune.
Donegal-based singer-songwriter Rosie Carney has been keeping busy in lockdown, covering Radiohead's classic 1995 album 'The Bends' in its entirety. 'Bones', the first single from the release – due out in December – has arrived.
“I recorded ‘Bones’ the day before I flew home to spend the rest of lockdown with my family in Ireland," Carney explained.
“I listened to it nonstop as I travelled from my flat in London into the middle of nowhere. Every single line resonated with me on such a deep level and after this one, I became far more confident in how I wanted the songs to sound if they were mine.”
The track, minimalist and ethereal, sees Carney using her otherworldly vocal to highlight its lyrics.
Carney’s career plans and mental health were both derailed by the pandemic, and the young singer-songwriter was faced with abandoning recording, decamping from London to her bedroom in her parent’s house in Ireland in order to recover from a relapse into depression. While receiving treatment there, she decided to cover ‘Fake Plastic Trees’ – but ultimately decided covering the entire LP as a form of therapy would be a bigger, better challenge.
