While we spend plenty of time looking at regions across the country and on the other side of the world, we need to spend some time with artists closer to home. On our latest peek into the indie world we are checking out “True Love Never Dies”, the lastest drop from singer Peyton Shay. Hailing from Los Angeles, Shay is in the echelon of the youngest artists to chart on the Billboard Hot 100! At a mere 18 years old, Shay debuted on the charts at #18 in the United States and #7 in the United Kingdom, showing that raw talent pushes past age. Using the momentum this early on in her career, Shay embarked on an international tour and spent any remaining time in the study, polishing up her sound. Not even taking a beat, Shay enticed listeners further with her debut EP in 2021, feeding her continuously growing fanbase. Shay plans to take 2022 by the horns and release even more singles throughout the year, so keep a close eye on the Peyton Shay camp.
While we’ve been cruising around in the indie music world for quite some time now, we still have the chance to find indie artists the tweak the formula just enough to catch our eye. The latest from Peyton Shay’s camp, “True Love Never Dies” is overflowing with late-2000s indie pop angst that it is almost overwhelming. Through the surprisingly awesome guitar work and the balancing act of the song’s arrangement, Shay explores a concept that unfortunately many people over the last two years have had to experience…or worse. Shay uses the track to peel back her feelings over almost losing a family member/loved one, but also the acceptance of the fact that your love for that person doesn’t stop just because they aren’t around anymore. An emotionally-draining single disguised as an epic indie-rock single? That’s exactly what we needed, Shay.
