Houston-based songwriter Peyton has been slowly but steadily amassing a following through her early singles and EPs, which have seen her included on the soundtrack for HBO’s Insecure. The next step in her journey comes as she signs to Stones Throw and announces her debut album, PSA, which is coming out on July 23. She’s also shared a new song called “Let It Flow”, saying:
“Following your own path can be scary, especially when there are many valid thoughts of doubt. ‘Let It Flow’ is an anthem and a mantra that encourages going with the flow and trusting your intuition.”
Chunky synth bass punctuates “Let It Flow”, and in the process introduces us to Peyton’s bigger and bolder production. She sounds fully in control as she oozes through the track, her advice of trusting your own instincts and not getting hung up coming in loquacious vocal melodies, giving us a picture of a woman fully comfortable in her skin. Rapper Brice Blanco steps in for a smooth verse, feeding off Peyton’s cosmic coolness and underlining the song’s themes of self-trust.
The video for “Let It Flow” was created by Uche Ogb. Watch it below or listen to the song on streaming platforms.
