Song of the Day: The Light – Kyoti

Released just before the Xmas period, pop/electro trio KYOTI‘s latest single ‘The Light’ is a song for those cold, winter months. They wanted to create something dark to reflect the season but that was ultimately full of hope and joy.

Singer Ed took influence from his own struggles with depression during the festive season to write the lyric. He said this about the track:

“The Light is a really personal song. Once we started writing I realised how complex and at times fraught the season can be. I’ve always been fascinated by the symbolism of light in the darkness and wanted that to be the main driving image behind the song. Last year I was in a very bad place in November and December which culminated in me calling The Samaritans, but thanks to a lot of self-care and therapy over the year my mental health has dramatically improved and for the first time in a long time I feel hopeful. It seemed to me that the line “I’m beginning to see the light” perfectly summed up that feeling.”

KYOTI have recently embarked on ‘Project Twelve’, where they will be self-releasing one track every month for a year. ‘The Light’ is track #3, with nine more to come in 2020. Their previous single ‘Restart the World’ was released through Seahorse Music (Bryde) and Kitsune Musique in early 2019, gaining airplay on BBC Wales and BBC Newcastle.

Sunny Achille reflect on habit and addiction in ‘Obsession’

Brighton-based SUNNY ACHILLE signs out 2019 with the release of single ‘Obsession’

Produced by Kai-A, ‘Obsession’ is about habit and addiction. Sunny explains: “It’s something we can all relate to in some form. We can often break a promise to ourselves and find ourselves escaping in a toxic way. Down the rabbit hole we go with our Obsession!”

Sunny grew up on his mother’s music collection ranging from Jazzmatazz, Lighthouse Family & Seal – to Coolio and The Streets – which led to have a diverse musical palette of his own. Blending trap with dubstep like synths, Achille combines his hard-hitting lyricism with left-field hip-hop elements throughout ‘Obsession’.

‘Obsession’ is out now on all major download/streaming sites. Stay tuned for the official music video in the coming weeks….

Song of the Day: Better Together – Mauritia

Vibrant alt-pop northerners MAURITIA‘s sixth release of the year, ‘Better Together’ is a charmingly playful love song with all the flavours of an indie classic. It’s the perfect blend of catchy melodies, big vocal hooks, soaring instrumentals, and some crunchy synths thrown in for good measure.

Drawing influence from the likes of Coin, Two Door Cinema Club and Foals, the Hull band have quickly forged their own style and glow with likability.

To celebrate the latest single and see the year out with a huge bang, MAURITIA headlined The Polar Bear, Hull last month, with support from Jumanji and The Avenues.
