Glaswegian pop duo HYYTS have released their new single ‘Singing Your Name’.
The track comes ahead of the duo supporting Griff on her sold-out UK tour later this month, culminating at London’s Shepherds Bush Empire, and their own recently-announced headline tour in November.
‘Singing Your Name’ follows up on their recent Helluvatime EP, winning Best Pop Act at the Scottish Music Awards and a nomination at The Scottish Alternative Music Awards.
“This song is meta as fuck – it’s this big jumpy pop song about how much we hate writing songs about our exes because we have to sing them to crowds every night and re-live that pain, so we’re literally going to be singing this to a crowd about how shite they’re making us feel lol” Adam from the band says.
He continues, “This song is like the lovechild of Hall & Oates and the Sugababes and we imagine it being the soundtrack of a noughties reality TV star’s fitness DVD. It encapsulates what HYYTS is about – we’re intentionally un-cool and just two fragile wee boys from Glasgow writing sad bangers that are universal and inclusive and make people want to dance.”
