SYTË was created by vocalist Nita Kaja and producer/synth player Drin Tashi; they met in Prishtina in the summer of 2016, developed a romantic relationship, and quickly understood the musical chemistry between them. When Fatlind Ferati (bass) and Granit Havolli (drums) came along, the duo became SYTË. Their debut was marked by the release of their self-titled EP in July of 2018. Since then, they have been touring and working on a second album which is set to be released sometime soon.

"If they used lead singer Nita Kaja’s voice for the recorded messages I hear on the NYC subway every morning, the world would be a much better place. I just get a real warm, melty feeling from it. Pair it up with the shimmering soundscapes courtesy of Drin Tashi, and you’re feeling neck-deep in the comfiest blanket this side of the Rio Grande.
Hope that mess of a paragraph above gets across how well I think these two work together. It is so often that I see talented people who are missing that other half or are kind of mismatched. In this case, they just play off each other well." - The Family Reviews
"Ajo çka na tërheq më tepër është inspirimi që SYTË marrin nga romantizmi, ekzistencializmi, natyra, astrologjia dhe gama e gjerë e emocioneve njerëzore, por mbi të gjitha frymëzimi ndaj së bukurës." - Electronic Beats
