Nite’s “Hurt No More,” out April 17 on their new album, Sleepless, via Cleopatra Records, was written in quarantine, and is the perfect anthem to listen to during quarantine.
“I wrote this song deep in winter, sick out of my mind, and quarantined in a basement located in the small town of Steinbach MB, Canada,” Myles Mendes of Nite explains. “I wanted to create a summer-y vibe with this tune by mashing up my influences of INXS and Amii Stewart. It was a great escape from the five feet of snow outside and from the basement that made me feel trapped and claustrophobic. The song is about a new relationship forming and both people leaving past heartbreaks behind.
“The music video was filmed on roof tops and in parking garages all over Dallas. We had a lot of fun destroying mirrors (for good luck) and cookie jars, too.”
Nite are Canadian-born twin brothers, Kyle and Myles Mendes, based in Dallas, TX. The duo create a unique hybrid of electronic rock with a nod to ’80s-influenced dream-pop, outfitting their sound with dueling harmonies. Their pulsing dance beats fuels the bands’ energetic live performances across North America.
