In this latest edition of The Last Mixed Tape’s song-of-the-week feature The Mixed-Tape we turn our attention to Rosie Carney and her latest single ‘Awake Me’.
The inherent rawness of ‘Awake Me’ takes hold from the first reverb soaked notes of Rosie Carney’s softly picked guitar. Carrying with it a deep, stark texture Carney’s debut offering is emotionally honest.
Through awake me Rosie Carney expresses and convey’s her own struggles with mental illness in a way that is personal but also deeply relateable, thanks to the subtle lyrical twist and turns takes the listener on.
‘Awake Me’ is a brave first outing from a compelling young artist whose songwriting is instantly striking. This is music in real life.
