After years as a solo success, with effervescent pop hits like “Bubbly” and “Realize,” singer-songwriter Colbie Caillat has formed a quartet with her fiance, Justin Young; her longtime collaborator, Jason Reeves and his wife, Nelly Joy.
Gone West blends pop and country in an intoxicating mix of four-part harmonies on display on debut EP, Tides, out Friday (Jan. 18). Today, Billboard premieres “Confetti,” a peppy, finger-snapping song that revolves around co-writer Eric Arjes’ buoyant guitar groove.
“We thought it would be cool to flip the script lyrically on a breakup song where when you get out of a bad relationship, you should celebrate it,” Caillat tells Billboard. “We always use the word confetti in our daily conversations, and Justin hit us with the brilliant line, 'No tears fell, just confetti.’”
