HYYTS Share New Bop ‘Bad Tattoo’

Check it out now...

Scottish duo HYYTS return with new single 'Bad Tattoo'.

The Glasgow pairing somehow made it through 2020 unscathed, releasing banger after multi-coloured banger.

New single 'Bad Tattoo' opens their account for 2021, and it's a lively affair, all hi-octane production and a killer chorus.

Adam Hunter comments: "I’d been drinking this highly caffeinated vodka drink that comes in pint cans up in Glasgow called Dragon Soop. I had like three cans of it and it is mental stuff it sent me into mad fever dreams all night. And while steaming I’d given myself a really bad tattoo on the back of my leg which I was kind of regretting but while tossing and turning and thinking about it I dreamed up the whole song!"

A dream that turned into a song, 'Bad Tattoo' is the kind of delirious alt-pop that HYYTS have made their own. Adam continues:

"It’s all about scars, whether they’re self-inflicted or otherwise, and the pride they should stand for from getting through a situation and having the marks to prove it. So the idea was to use tattoos as a metaphor of how something painful can leave a positive impression and how being proud of your painful experiences is a beautiful thing."

Recovery, renewal, and locating light in the darkness – sounds about right for these times.
