KYOTI Unveil New Single 'Curved Edge Straight Line'
London-based art-pop project KYOTI returns with a brand new single called Curved Edge Straight Line. This is such a smooth, infectious tune with an introspective vibe and blending jazz and electronica. It explores the theme of dependency on both substances and other people. As the band put it themselves,
Curved Edge, Straight Line is a song about searching for forgiveness from those close to you, while accepting your own faults.” The track is as musically grounding as it is thematically, with minimalist beats and a steady rhythm that rumbles away into a swell of cascading synths and keyboards.

KYOTI’s aesthetic as an art outfit is every bit as important as their stripped back, electro-wave sound. The three-piece, made up of Benji Huntrods, David Mabbott and Ed Burgon, base their image and artwork on the abstractness of an ordinary, mundane world. Specifically inspired by British Modernist sculptors like Barbara Hepworth and the surrealist optical illusions of M.C. Escher, the three-piece balance their aesthetic with the over-arching impact of contemporary pop music, citing artists like Hot Chip and Joanna Newsom amongst their influences.

Cutting a path through music, art and narrative expression, this dynamic three-piece bring a plethora of unique talents to the fore – and ‘Curved Edge, Straight Line’ continues to cement their reputation as a band with all the ingredients for a ripe future.
