Blake Rose Hits Home with Expressive and Relatable New Single, “Confidence”

Rachel Guttman

Following Blake Rose’s debut EP last year, A World Gone By, listeners have just gotten their first taste of this year’s music as he unveils the profound new track, “Confidence.” Blake has touched on the meaning of the song, explaining that it is about “lacking the self-esteem and confidence to realize that you can do better than the current romantic situation you’re in.” He expands further stating he believes that “a lot of people settle for disloyal partners because they think it’s all they deserve, but in reality, everyone deserves a partner who loves them and is faithful.”

After just one listen to "Confidence," it became clear to me that Blake is, without a doubt, an artist to watch and be excited about. “Confidence” has a certain depth to it which Blake creates through his profound lyrics and tranquil, indie-leaning instrumentals. The single is focused, precise, and guitar-driven, which makes the song feel notably raw. Furthermore, his fine-tuned vocals in combination with the song’s modern tones work in harmony to create a feeling of paramount authenticity.
