November 3, 2023 BY Bailey Vigliaturo
In the midst of a North American tour supporting Vacations and Last Dinosaurs, Atlanta dream pop artist Bathe Alone shares her mesmerizing new single, “Archive 81.” The new track is personal for twentysomething visionary Bailey Crone as it tackles her feelings following her recent divorce. She explains, “I wrote this song right after getting divorced, and I really didn’t know what was happening in my life. I thought it was dumb that all I wanted to do was pick up where we left off and finish this TV show, but the thought of that was comforting. Amidst all the chaos, sometimes you just need to feel like you’re doing something normal – that’s part of denial, and that’s where this one came from.” The track follows the recent single hazy atmospheric song, “Gemini,” and her double EP, Fall With The Lights Down (Velma) & (Louise), which came out on August 4th.

Bathe Alone is the moniker for multi-instrumentalist Bailey Crone, who works closely with producer Damon Moon (Curtis Harding, Lunar Vacation & more) at his iconic studio, Standard Electric. Growing up with a formal background in classical music, Crone first burrowed her way into the Peach State’s indie scene as a teenager. She picked up drums, guitar, and bass early on and sharpened her skills playing in various bands, including touring as the drummer for the buzzy Girlpuppy. Bathe Alone was founded on her skills as a drummer, with influences from punk to ambient guitar drenched in delay. Her 2023 Double EP, Fall With The Lights Down, is a sonic expression of nostalgic longing, with each part dedicated to one of Bailey’s great-grandmothers whom she never met and are pictured on the cover of their namesake EP. The double EP received praise from media outlets like Under The Radar, Flood, Luna Collective, Atwood Magazine, Flood, Ones to Watch, and notable fellow musicians like Sharon Van Etten. She has already opened for artists like Jadu Heart, Beabadoobee, and Neighbor Lady. For the current tour supporting Vacations and Last Dinosaurs, she is performing with a full band backing her.
