For the twin creative forces driving SIIGHTS, everything comes back to authentic connections. It’s there in the effortless interplay between Dublin songwriter, multi-instrumentalist/producer Mia Fitz and Glaswegian songwriter, guitarist Toni Etherson, in the seamless vocal harmonies that characterise their soaring work together, and in the close bond they’ve forged with listeners thanks to their refreshing lyrical candour. Less than 12 months on from latest collection Somewhere Between Lost & Found, the Lana Del Rey-approved pair are more in sync than ever and pushing their powerful guitar driven alt-pop into bold new territory with a pair of ambitious sister projects. Set to arrive in early 2024, Through Thick and Thin will be the first instalment: a five-track EP that sets themes of growth, empowerment and self-acceptance to some of the most indelible melodies of SIIGHTS’ story so far. As per all their previous work, this latest chapter was self-directed. Written, performed and produced by the duo in early 2023 – in-between dates opening for Dylan – both EPs were created between NYC, LA, Stockholm, London, as well as at Mia’s home studio in Dublin. “We've really been getting into the guts of our songwriting,” Toni enthuses. “And there's something so freeing and genuine in embracing exactly what it is we want to say.” Mia nods in agreement: “also sound-wise, our original folk and rock influences are starting to come through, probably more now than ever.”
