Last summer was a wild one for With Confidence. After being on the road with the final full-length Vans Warped Tour in different cities across North America, they released their sophomore album Love and Loathing, followed by the #5 spot on the Billboard Emerging Artists Chart later in the month. Now back and ready as ever for a new year, the band have released a new version of “Without Me (Pâquerette)” as their new single!
“Without Me (Pâquerette)” was a standout track for many on Love and Loathing. While With Confidence are known for their infectiously energetic shows and songs, this song reached listeners with a softer, earnest side that showcased their growth as a band and maturity as individuals. This was a fan favourite that reflected on and provided closure for many.
So, what does this newer version sound like?
This version of the song brings the With Confidence energy that we all fell in love with. While the original release of the song that touched the lives of so many listeners worldwide, this version is the sequel that still keeps its original meaning and intent. While the original was an honest and well-wishing goodbye, the fast-paced energy is the aftermath of closure. It’s the positive energy of having moved on. It’s knowing that you’re both going to be just fine. It’s the post-closure excitement for new experiences in the future. It’s genuine happiness and we’re so here for it.
