CloudKid Presents Peyton Shay - PowerTrip
Peyton Shay is back with her next single, ‘PowerTrip,’ an anthemic, edgy, and daring song. The verse’s intentionally highlight the melody and lyrics, leaving the chorus to fill out both through production and vocals. The use of synth, guitar, and drums is used to create dynamic in the songs drive and energy, with lyrics on the song to match.
Peyton says of the song, “PowerTrip walks the lines of manipulation and realization. Having spent most of my life feeling like I needed to prove myself, it was easier to trust and love the wrong people rather than face the truth. When you’re young, there’s people who see that as an opportunity to exploit and build their own success through power and control. For most of us, we’ve been in a situation where we felt powerless, so I wanted this song to be the voice that so many of us have been taught not to use.”
