THOUGHT OF US
The Thought Of Us is the 4th single of Avi Kytes' debut EP "Sour Kisses & Goodbyes". An intimate exploration into the struggle of falling in love only with the idea of being with someone. A dark and deep story that explores mental health and the emotional toll of affection, all encompassed by a soft piano and a strong vocal performance that is joined by an evolving atmosphere of sound, portraying the uncertainty inside Avi's mind in this story.
Cult is an exploration on a love story between two clashing worlds, those a closed up cult and the outside world. It retains the innocence of a love story while slowly hinting at the inevitable clashes between beliefs. All behind an acoustic guitar with eerie undertones, and an experimental use of vocal textures throughout the song that impersonate the strange nature of this story.
Naked explores human vulnerability and the need to open up by drawing a parallelism between denial and pure intimacy. All encompassed in smooth vocal melodies and pulsating rhythms, coming from Avi's spanish influence, that paint an image of conflict, love and sensuality.
Roll Over is a love song in its essence that explores the moment you find out you truly love the person you are spending your time with, juggling both the fear of the future and the desire to embrace the present. Blending synthesisers alongside percussive elements from Avi Kyte’s Spanish heritage, Roll Over creates a rhythmic pace that combined with catchy melodies builds an atmosphere of movement and colour for the listener to be absorbed by.
