Hot off the back of their recent successful singles ‘Tell Me Lies’ and ‘Broke It With Me’, which spent 9 weeks in Ireland’s Shazam ‘Top 10’ and 5 weeks in Spotify’s ‘Viral Top 50’ charts, Irish-Scottish Duo SIIGHTS return with irresistible pop bop ‘Shoulda Been’ recently released.
Teaming up with UK label LAB records, ‘Shoulda Been’ is the first release from the Duo’s much-anticipated debut EP, scheduled for release early next year. Marking a new development in their sound & direction, ‘Shoulda Been’ depicts the nostalgic idealism sometimes experienced when reminiscing on a previous relationship. It questions how things could have turned out differently & how, with hindsight, you can see things in a new light.
SIIGHTS say, “Most people will look back on a heart-break & overthink what they could have done differently. The song is about someone you had a strong connection with but the relationship didn’t work out for whatever reason &andknowing that we are probably not alone in that feeling.”
‘Shoulda Been’ features muted organic guitar riffs with a sound that could be likened to artists Chelsea Cutler, Sasha Sloan & Lauv. Since its release, the track has been added to Spotify’s New Music Friday UK & New Pop Revolution playlists, boosting their collective streams to over 3 Million!
The Duo has been hot-tipped as the breaking artist to watch in the coming months by DiscoverNü & have previously featured in the likes of Clash Magazine, Joe.ie & The Irish Times. 2019 also saw SIIGHTS become the #3 most played Independent artist on Irish Radio, reach #2 in the Music Week Commercial Charts and their most recent collaboration has surpassed 1.5 Million views on YouTube.
With live shows at Kaleidoscope, supporting Shy Martin and a sold-out debut headline gig in ‘King Tuts’ Glasgow combined with backing from Elton John & The Chainsmokers & more new music leading up to their debut EP in their back pocket, SIIGHTS are well on their way to making their mark in the pop world!
‘Shoulda Been’ is OUT NOW via LAB Records.
