It’s a pleasure to be writing an update on, EQ Music Blog regarding one of my favourite emerging pop duos. HYYTS, the electro-pop band out of Glasgow, has been up to all sorts of exciting things lately, which I wanted to highlight. The last few months were particularly busy ones for Adam and Sam. In October, alongside DYLAN, they were tour support acts for GRIFF. The band was again on the road during November, this time supporting Daði Freyr. They followed this up in December with a headline tour of their own. While all the tour excitement was going on, HYYTS also released a new track, “Singing Your Name.”
My bad. I never had the chance to write about “Singing Your Name” when it launched a few weeks ago. Somehow I also managed to miss the launch of the music video as well. I didn’t intend for the track to slip under the radar entirely. It is great to get lots of news from HYYTS and to have the chance to write about it now.
Musicality, style and lyrics are seamlessly coming together for HYYTS. Evermore, their melodic pop efforts glide down the ear like a dream. “Singing Your Name” (written with Sigrid, Dagny, Baby Queen and Gracey, collaborator Dan McDougall) shares personable lyrics and are indicative of the band’s experiences performing live. They say, “the song is about singing about our problems in front of you all“. This affirms what I have previously picked up about their songwriting, resonating with poignant messages and intelligent social commentary.
The year 2022 is already off to a good start for the duo. They have been named Ones to Watch by Amazon Music, while Radio 1’s BBC Introducing segment has hailed, “Singing Your Name” track of the week. (It will be played every day this week on the Introducing programme).
I am glad HYYTS are receiving this kind of recognition at last. I have had good feelings about them for quite a while. Catch on to these rising stars now if you haven’t already. They are making strides. They are also currently working on the debut album.
