Music Spotlight: Confetti
LA-based pop-rock duo Confetti keeps things fun while also addressing struggling with spirituality in their latest single dear god. we chatted with them about the track + their mysterious aesthetic.
Asymmetric Magazine: Congrats on your release of Dear God. Tell us a little bit about it.
Confetti: Thanks guys! This one was special to us. We wanted to address a sentiment that seems increasingly popular in today’s world, which is a struggle/confusion with spirituality. But in Confetti fashion, we’re keeping it relatively lighthearted and sarcastic.
AM: How would you describe your sound?
C: It's a little bit of everything. We're definitely inspired by 90s alternative/hip-hop music but brought into the modern pop sound of today. Maybe it's best described as sarcastic pop.
AM: What themes do you typically pursue through your music?
C: We like to touch on topics, emotions, feelings that are relevant in society today. Sometimes it can be political or religious, but ultimately we're just trying to capture the current emotional climate of the world, put our spin on it, and hopefully have it relate to a large audience.
AM: What is the significance of the elephants that surround your image?
C: It signifies being the ‘elephant in the room’, as in, a topic that everyone wants to talk about but doesn't really know how to address. So, we're here to do that through music. Not to mention they're smart, loyal, strong, and they have advanced social connections. We're huge fans of the species.
AM: What other musicians are currently inspiring you?
C: Probably Kanye and Lil Pump with a splash of the Beatles.
AM: What role does Los Angeles play in your work?
C: For one, we owe it to Los Angeles for keeping us friends and bringing us out here to pursue music. For better or for worse, we're also at the heart of social media stars, reality shows, flashy Hollywood events—it provides us plenty of content to write about.
AM: Where is one place that you feel completely in touch with your creative self/music?
C: We're both from the midwest, so naturally when we're back in Indiana or Illinois, we find clarity in our writing. We actually wrote Dear God in NYC with our friends Kinetics and One Love, so apparently New York, too.
AM: What can we expect to hear from you next?
C: We have a few more singles lined up... they all combine some rock, pop, hip-hop, and reggae. It should be a fun journey, and we're pumped for the ride.
