Nite - On The Edge Of Darkness

Single review by kev@thesoundofconfusion.co.uk

Indie/electro duo Nite originate from Canada but have currently set up camp down in Texas. The music they make isn't what you may expect from your stereotypical southern US band though. The pair of Miles and Kyle Mendes are actually twins, so it's perfectly plausible for them to be on the same wavelength musically, and it seems that their sound of choice is an update of new-wave but with a distinct pop side to it which could see them gain a broad appeal. Single 'On The Edge Of Darkness' is from their recently released album 'I Am Not Afraid'.

It's a competent and confident track that makes good use of the duo's vocal range, splitting between the crystal clear lead and a dreamier, overlaid backing. Musically the song combines an electronic sounding beat that also varies, from a steady pounding to solid thumps, assuring the track has some clout. The electronic side is cut through with guitars that could be from a shoegaze band and the contrast works really well. 'On The Edge Of Darkness' is a solid track, and one that promises much from a pair making their initial steps into the music world at large.
