Single review: HYYTS – SOS

Glaswegian duo HYYTS’ latest single ‘SOS’ tackles the important subject of mental health support with some grace. With simple lyrics accompanied by an understated but steady electro-pop backing track, the song provides an uplifting message with an equally positive sound; it’s catchy enough to sing along to, and deep enough to make you think of that friend you haven’t spoken to in a while but probably should.

Released during a year where the message is especially needed, and in association with World Mental Health Day, the group have made it clear they are making more than music – they are building a community for their listeners to make connections in a time where many people are more isolated than ever. ‘SOS’ shows they aren’t afraid of approaching important and potentially difficult subjects, and that they’re capable of doing this while making fun tracks you’ll keep coming back to.
