Hailing from Glasgow, HYYTS are best friends and flatmates Adam and Sam. Androgynous, inclusive, and ones to watch for 2020 as they unashamedly infiltrate the pop sphere proving pop is no longer a dirty word. Inspired by unconventional sounds and with a sonic palette that traverses genres, their sound draws from underground club culture, production laced with brooding beats and soaring pop ambition alongside frontman Adam’s work as a music therapist in some of Scotland’s toughest prisons providing a deep pool of emotion teamed with the theatre of sonic weaver Sam’s performance, drawing from his time curating and promoting underground nights around Edinburgh.
With their latest single ‘Lonely People‘, they continue to explore their genre-bending sound with the flux of life’s trials and tribulations. It’s a neon-drenched, euphoric banger that builds to a crescendo with soaring production and contrasted with an emotional, coming-of-age narrative.
Chatting about the single, singer Adam says: “Lonely People is about growing up and realising that you should always leave yourself open to be hurt because any kind of happy life needs some sadness in it. It’s better to feel anything than nothing. It’s a coming of age song and basically a wee bit of advice I wish someone had given me when I started going out and getting full of booze and drugs.”
