The New Division
The New Division is the alias of Los Angeles-based electronic Musician/Producer John Glenn Kunkel. With 3 albums and 4 EP's, as well as numerous remixes and productions featuring on his impressive and extensive resume, Kunkel starts 2017 with The New Division’s most euphoric and synth-heavy record yet: PRECISION.
Featuring six analog-driven tracks, Kunkel describes his latest work as, “An homage to neon-tinted dystopian cityscapes,” drawing inspiration from synth-laden neo-retro pop, Moroder melodics, vintage-inspired electronica, and cinematic sensibilities to create something wholly unique that is referential yet inherently forward-thinking.
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 continue to keep their eyes on the next touring opportunity with their sights set on Europe. They have been humbled to share the stage on a number of occasions with artists such as Midge Ure of Ultravox, Howard Jones, Clean Bandit, The Griswolds, A Flock of Seagulls, Small Black, The Alarm, 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.
