Ivory Layne is a rising singer-songwriter and producer based in Nashville, Tennessee. Not too long ago, she released an appealing audiovisual for her “Confetti” single.
Ivory Layne – “Confetti” music video
“I wanted something colorful that we could feasibly bring to life in the confines of my place. We created ‘the party that was so hard to leave’ from the bridge of ‘Confetti’ with cake, streamers, and glitter that refuses to help pay rent but somehow insists on sticking around.” – Ivory Layne explained
‘Confetti’ tells a heartfelt tale about a young woman who knows it will take time to truly get over a very special person in her life. Even though they are no longer an item, she still holds on to memorable moments of them being together. Later, she admits that she can look in her ex’s eyes, even though they no longer shine for her. That statement proves she has gotten over the bitterness and hurt. Now, all she needs is a new party to attend.
The quarantined-inspired music video was directed by artists Aaron Campbell and Gatton, with full art direction, styling, and editing duties courtesy of Ivory Layne. The video was filmed inside Layne’s Nashville home, and the visuals resonate with her love of movie soundtracks.
“You were the party that was so hard to leave.”
“I can listen to music again, hear your song without losing my head. Can let go of whenever you said, ‘Forever.’ I can tell you, ‘Hello.’ Never have one regret. Forgive with all my might. Oh, I can try to forget. I can get over the hurt and I can wish you the best. But I don’t think I’m ready for confetti, yet.” – lyrics
‘Confetti’ contains a relatable narrative, ear-pleasing vocals, and tuneful melodies that will resonate well with the fans of Adele and Maggie Rogers. The bittersweet tune possesses piano-driven instrumentation flavored with an emotional pop aroma. Also, “Confetti” serves as a wonderful presentation of what listeners can expect to hear on Ivory Layne’s upcoming debut EP, entitled, “Confetti,” set to be released on February 18, 2021. The project contains a collection of emotive tunes produced by Nick Atkinson and Edd Holloway aka The Barn Productions (Lewis Capaldi, Gabrielle Aplin, Dean Lewis), Jimmy Robbins (Keith Urban, Maren Morris, Miranda Lambert), and Ivory herself. Furthermore, the EP is Layne’s first UK release since signing with Justin Timberlake’s development company, Villa 40.
Ivory Layne has worked with Grammy Award-winning producer Ed Cash (Dolly Parton, Amy Grant) on her debut EP. She has collaborated with Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness and Needtobreathe. Also, she has written for other artists alongside co-writes with some of Nashville’s finest including Jimmy Robbins, Shane McAnally, and Lori McKenna. Furthermore, Layne’s sharpness in the writer’s room has landed her two global ad campaigns. One for prestigious jewelry house, Swarovski, and another for cable giant, HBO.
