SIIGHTS released their self-titled debut 4-track EP and lead single ‘Blue Skies’ on April 3rd. Clocking over 200k streams since its release and playlist support on Spotify’s acclaimed New Music Friday UK, New Pop UK, Frühlings Chillout and Best New Pop, ‘Blue Skies’ is their fastest streaming single to date.
This dynamic duo are back and have joined forces with one of the most authentic young voices in hip-hop, JyellowL to deliver a raw and touching remix showcasing the song in a new alternative light. The track is a powerful earworm that touches on topics of loss, grief and a much-needed message of hope.
SIIGHTS revealed: “We reached out to JyellowL and having him involved has been amazing – he’s so talented, we love what he brought to the track and the personal perspective he shared lyrically. This song means a lot to us and was hard to write. We have both lost people close to us and it’s something that stays with you forever.”
Channelling his own experience of grief, JyellowL beautifully adds to the song’s sentiment with his personal lyrics and hypnotic flow which make for a striking collaboration that showcases the talent and distinctiveness of both acts.
JyellowL explains: “When Mia and Toni first sent me Blue Skies, it resonated with me instantly. At the time, I didn’t know their personal stories behind the lyrics, but it made me think of how I felt when I lost someone close to me. My grandfather raised me since I was a kid, so when he died it hit me hard. One day he was there and the next he was just gone – everything was thrown into disarray. After a while I started digging into my memory for the experiences we shared together – savouring them and replaying them as a way of coping. Holding on to memories and savoring shared experiences you had is a powerful thing to be able to draw on when people pass on, so I wrote my verses very much with that in mind.”
