KYOTI are the thinking man's pop. A powerhouse of disparate influences - jazz, folk, and pop - KYOTI create rich soundscapes of synths and beats, interlaced with thoughtful lyricism.
Having exploded on to the London live music scene in 2017, they released their debut EP ‘Orbit’ followed by single ‘Avalon’. The trio have just dropped their third release 'Restart the World' - "digital pop done right" (Clash Magazine). KYOTI have had previous support from online press including TMRW, Indie Shuffle, Complex, and major Spotify playlists such as ‘Indie Pop’ and ‘New Music Friday Italia’. With a theatrical and energetic live show, and a slew of new material in the chamber, KYOTI continue to be ones to watch in 2019.
