Four-piece indie-pop band SYTË drop their dreamy new cut “Tail Light” ahead of their debut album.
“Tail Light” is a rush through the city at night, glistening electronics twinkling like the ghostly glow of car headlights on the motorway. Nita Kaja’s honeyed lyrical inflections float effortlessly over the web of warped synth patterns and soft melodies, creating a soft haven for the listener to reside in.
“It’s dedicated to the youthful nights filled with fluttering anticipation and excitement when you’re headed to a house party and riding shotgun in your crush’s car” the group offers. “The night is illuminated by twinkling stars and red car taillights, and you feel like the protagonist of a tragically cool, indie coming-of-age film. These are the highlights of being a young person living in a quiet suburbia.”
SYTË, meaning “eyes” in Albanian, was officially formed in 2018 by Nita Kaja and Drin Tashi. Meeting during the summer of 2016 in Prishtina, Kosovo, the pair sparked a romantic and creative partnership which eventually blossomed into SYTË, bringing bass player Fatlind Ferati and drummer Granit Havolli on board. Working independently and creatively across the projects formation, the group have built up an impressive live reputation, playing slots at Sunny Hill Festival, Pop-Kultur and Localize.
