Festival Date/Time/Location: Friday, April 12 / 12AM / Rubber Gloves Rehearsal Studios
NITE are Canadian-born twin brothers, Kyle and Myles Mendes, based in Dallas, TX. The duo create a unique hybrid of electronic-tinged rock with a nod to 80’s-influenced dream-pop. Kyle and Myles’ powerful dueling vocals might remind oneself of Tears for Fears’ Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith, with a delivery of tasteful guitar hooks amidst bright synthesizers and throbbing drum machines.
NITE completed two full tours within North America in 2016 with Seabound (Germany) and The Foreign Resort (Denmark), and also a tour with The New Division (Los Angeles) in 2018. They have been humbled to share the stage on a number of occasions with artists such as Midge Ure (of Ultravox), Paul Young, Chad Valley, Howard Jones, A Flock of Seagulls, Small Black, The Alarm, Zola Jesus, Blackbird Blackbird, Men Without Hats, Julien-K, Woody Woodmansey’s Holy Holy, A Silent Film, ChameleonsVOX, Modern English, George Clanton, Magic Sword, and many more.
In July 2017, NITE released the album, Reborn, on Cleopatra Records, which features the songs “Dreamer”, “Godless City”, and “I Long 4 U”, as a follow-up to their 2014 self-release, I Am Not Afraid. Summer 2019 will see NITE release their third album, Sleepless, on Cleopatra.
