PEYTON LIST ON HER LEAP INTO ADULTHOOD WITH “LIAR LIAR”
Peyton List is most known by fans for her role as Emma in Disney’s Jessie and Bunk’d, but now she’s making waves with her new single entitled “Liar, Liar”. The track is the essence of driving electro-pop and features bold catchy melodies paired with raw honest lyrics. The song signifies her leap into adulthood, breaking the Disney bubble. I got the chance to interview Peyton, discovering her process in creating the single and her upcoming plans for her music.
What was your inspiration behind “Liar, Liar” and was there an actual guy in your life you felt was unfaithful?
It was less of a guy more of people who have hurt me or betrayed me. People who have thought I was weak because I’m kind. This song very much shows a side of me I don’t show a lot of people. It’s more a moving on the song for me. Saying you lied, I know the facts, I’m done, have a nice life.
The single features unfiltered lyrics that are straightforward and honest, what was your writing process like when creating the track?
I was honestly surprised I ended up putting out “Liar Liar” because it very much felt the most unfiltered I’ve ever been with people who aren’t in my immediate circle. I thought I’d choose a safer song when the time came.
I work with producers over at Dirty Canvas, and their buddies Jackson and Ryder wrote it. The song spoke to me immediately I wanted to scream it and sing it over and over. Any song that can bring out the bad bitch buried deep down, ha.
“Liar, Liar” is infectious electro-pop, is that a genre you’ve always been drawn to and who are some of your musical inspirations?
The past couple of years it really is the sound I’ve been attracted to. I’m going to drop my playlist for you because it is basically a hodgepodge of my musical inspirations.
What does the future look like for you as an artist and what can your fans expect next?
Oh, I’m going to get back in the studio right after the holidays. I was so blown away by how positive everyone responded I’m so grateful. Can’t wait to record more music for them.
