CloudKid Presents Peyton Shay - Badder Than The Bad Boys
Peyton Shay is badder than the bad boys, on her re-released single of the same name via CloudKid. The track is both powerful and anthemic, with verses being stripped to a pumping bass melody with kick drums. The sound design on ‘Badder Than The Bad Boys’ was also used and done literally as a means to describe the lyrics, such as using a clock’s tick before going into the chorus. Simple but effective electric guitars and drums are also featured throughout the song, with production and vocals made to complement, not compete against, each other.
Peyton says of the song, “I wrote this song following a strange dream, that subconsciously was my reality. The idea took place starting in high school. I grew up in a very proper and standardized town where everyone followed certain paths and expectations, even the ‘bad boys’ followed a norm, and I couldn’t stand it. Instead, I wanted to be on top of the world and genuinely live life for myself. This song is about me speaking and thinking how I want, not how everyone else expects me to do. I hope this song gives power to the listener and helps them discover their true self.”
