SIIGHTS are a formidable new alternative pop duo made up of Mia Fitzgerald & Toni Etherson managed by Grumpy management (Griff, Dylan, Ed Sheeran) Raised in Dublin and Glasgow respectively, SIIGHTS first came into view by chance in Los Angeles, where Mia and Toni were hustling in the studio for others. A fish-out-of-water experience, even after the most grueling days there proved to be an obvious connection between the pair (whether in the music they longed to make for themselves, or a shared Gaelic humour). Today, SIIGHTS seek to mix the harmonies, alt-pop and female empowerment of their childhood heroes - HAIM, Alanis Morisette and Taylor Swift - as experienced by a new gen of young women online, working it all out in plain sight. There is, clearly, more to SIIGHTS than meets the eye: the double I’s represent their two identities, but also allude to deeper allusions across the band’s work - whether foresight, hindsight, or the broadened horizons they long to make in the creative industries.
Somewhere Between Lost and Found is an affecting introduction to an exciting new band, who appear poised for a breakout year. With early support across Radio 1, BBC Introducing, Elton John’s Rocket Hour and a UK tour with Griff & Dylan already under their belts, stay tuned for more from SIIGHTS to come soon.
