Peyton McMahon releases new single “No Control”
Produced by Harper James, this vulnerable single is an exploration of what living with anxiety is like. We visit the internal thoughts of an overthinker (hello, it’s me) and discover how there is a never-ending cycle of thoughts, fears, and decisions.
Peyton McMahon is not just a beautiful singer… with this song, he has proven his talent in songwriting.
“I wrote “No Control” about the anxiety I’ve struggled with since I was a kid. Whenever I’m in situations where I don’t have control over the outcome, or I’m trying to make a big decision, I can sometimes overthink and worry to the extreme. It’s frustrating and makes things harder than they need to be, and it can sometimes feel like an endless cycle, so I wrote this song to vent about it. I worked on it remotely with Harper James on the production, and I’m super proud of how it came out,” he explains.
Peyton McMahon has powerful and well-suited vocals for the type of music he creates. By taking his personal yet relatable lyrics, and mixing that with his musicianship, he has all the right ingredients for a hit record.
Now that he is on our radar, we will continue to follow his career. Head over and take a look at his TikTok. The covers posted there made me an instant fan (TSwift and 1D fans will get it).
“No Control” is available now on all major streaming platforms. You can listen to it below, as well.
