The Confederation is a band that plays a variety of genres and incorporates a wide variety of sound qualities and musical styles into its sound. The multifaceted congregation features a wide variety of musical styles and sounds that cut beyond categories of music. The music of the past, present, and future are skillfully blended together to create a sound that is exclusive to the Confederation.

The most recent single released by The Confederation is titled “Tailspin,” and is a New Orleans Gospel-influenced Summer Funk Rock journey. To be served along with sunshine and rum punch. The single was recorded via internet sessions with a live performance aesthetic. The song “Tailspin” is meant to be lively and pleasant to listen to. The lyrics have a sly sense of humour hidden within them. This song explores the unpredictability of love as well as the experience of being carried away in a whirlwind. A little bit resistant to the possibility that it is an illusion, while at the same time getting carried away by it.
