New Scottish band, HYYTS, just performed this week in Edinburgh’s Mash House, promoting new track, Bullet, so The Fountain took the opportunity to catch up with the guys about performing in the capital and the origin of the band name.

TF: So, you were recently just performing in Edinburgh, how exciting? 

Hiya, ye we had our second ever headline gig this Thursday past at the Mash House. 

TF: Have you performed in Edinburgh before, how do you find the crowd?

We’ve played Sneaky Pete’s twice with two amazing bands, Upstairs Open and The Howl and The Hum. The crowds have been amazing and that’s probably one of our favourite venues in the world so it’s always been serious gravy.

TF: Where has been your favourite gig to date? 

There have been so many amazing gigs for us so it’s hard to say, although our first big stage experience up at Loopallu was completely mental and so much fun. 

TF: And finally, what inspired the name HYYTS? 

We actually have a song called Blinding Heights, which we planned on kind of flag shipping our first wee stint of releases (things obviously changed) and from that we got Heights, but that was taken so we went for a weird unpronounceable version.
