NITE take on the A-Z challenge!
August 21, 2017 |
Canadian electronic/synth pop duo NITE are gearing up for the release of their new album Reborn. The twins, Kyle (vocals/synth/bass) and Myles (vocals/synth/guitar) Mendes powerful vocals have us at AltCorner hooked! We asked Kyle to take on our A-Z challenge...
A song that made you want to make music?
Avner - Bed för Mig. This song provides both peace and darkness that we tried to achieve with our album, Reborn. We've still yet to achieve both in one song.
Best rider you've had?
Any venue that provides a full meal and not just beer.
Craziest moment you've experienced in the band?
Our van was broken into in San Francisco in broad daylight, fully loaded with gear... and all they took were our laptop bags which included our passports.
Deepest lyric one of your songs features?
Lately I've been careless
Throwing stones to decide my fate
Or maybe I've realized
My fate is not in my hands
Easiest song you wrote?
Dream of You from our album Reborn.
Favourite song in your set?
Guest you'd most like to feature on one of your records?
Bono, of course!
Hardest thing about being in a band?
Learning to have patience and overcoming anxiety. There is a lot of waiting around before shows, which leaves you with a lot to think about.
Interesting fact about one of your members?
How about both... we're twins!
Jokes you have in the band?
Batman is the real star in the band.
Key to writing a song?
I like to write what I want to hear at the moment. My favorite songs tend to be written when I'm bored with the usual tunes I listen to.
Longest distance you've traveled to play a show?
We drove all the way from Dallas to Santa Barbara overnight to open for a sold out show with FMLYBND that included a member of M83.
