“…HYYTS push the boundaries of pop to the limit.”
- Clash Magazine
Glasgow risers HYYTS return with their latest precocious pop release, Car Crash Carnivore, out on 19th April 2019.
Kicking off with Adam’s ethereal falsetto soaring over soft synth soundscapes, the duo’s disco and alt-pop influences clearly shine through. Adam whimsically stays true to his roots with his own take on ‘skip-hop’ (Scottish hip-hop), creating a sound that feels truly refreshing and unpredictable. Talking about the track, HYYTS elaborate, “Car Crash Carnivore is a warning to all the shapeshifters and monsters that live among us and try to blend in. We wanted all the creatures that lurk in the shadows of show business and politics to know that we’re on to them and there’s no price for our souls”. Fans of the likes of Jungle and MNEK will feel at home here.
Adam and Sam HYYTS started making music together in 2015 and have been making waves ever since. They’ve supported the likes of The Howl & The Hum and Culture Club, as well as being the only unsigned artist to perform at 2018’s Scottish Music Awards. They have also received praise from Clash Magazine, Phoenix Magazine and 1883 Magazine to name a few. Having kicked off the year with a sold out show at the Glasgow Poetry Club and confirmed festival slots at Electric Fields and Loopallu, 2019 is shaping up to be a very exciting year for the future pop duo.
