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.
From an early age, music was a huge part of Kyle and Myles’ upbringing. Mesmerized by KISS, the first concert the twins attended, their interest in performance hit an all-time high. Together with the memory of their first concert and the sounds of their favorite bands (New Order, The Cure, Depeche Mode) buzzing about in their heads, the two began experimenting, creating their own vibrant sound. Beginning at fifteen years of age, Kyle and Myles fronted a three-piece band, RadioFire. After a few years, they felt their music starting to take a bit of a different direction, so a new project was born. Originally named Nighttime Eyes and later shortened to NITE, the pair finally found the rhythm that worked for them. Forming a strong-knit team with their manager, Kami Fuller, whom they met before NITE played their first show, Kyle and Myles have been lighting up the stages of Texas and beyond since January 2014.
NITE completed two full tours within North America in 2016 with Seabound (Germany) and The Foreign Resort (Denmark), and also a U.S. 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, Clean Bandit, The Griswolds, 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, De/Vision, ACTORS, and many more. In July 2017, NITE released a new 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.
Spring 2019 will see NITE release their third album, Sleepless, on Cleopatra.
