Meet LeyeT (pronounced "light"), who just released the music video for "Notice You," the first single from her forthcoming sophomore EP.
Explaining the inspiration for the song, LeyeT says, "This song is about giving someone recognition; letting them know that they are seen, noticed, and appreciated. In the music video that pairs [with the song], I highlight one of my best friends whose story, drive and light really inspire me. Her bright energy is undeniable yet as I got to know her, I learned that the light she radiates is not one marked without profound loss or everyday struggle."

After making her debut in 2017 with "Don't Make Me Cry," which topped Spotify's Fresh Finds, along with alighting on Spotify's US and Global Viral charts, LeyeT followed up with "Long Way" and "Like You More," both of which hit number one on Hype Machine, and "Let Me Know," which was featured on Spotify's New Music Friday.
"Notice You" opens on warm guitar tones topped by LeyeT's evocative voice. Iridescent washes of synths fill the tune with luminous colors, as the potent rhythm escalates.
The highlight of the song is LeyeT's enchanting tones shaping her moving lyrics: "I was sick of making empty conversation / Cause I only heard of fake communication, yeah / Suddenly you got me looking up / Honestly it's like waking up."
