Nite (aka Astari Nite)
SLC local band: Rare Facture
Guest Dj: SkyInverted

The New Division (Los Angeles, CA.):
The New Division is an alias of the electronic artist John Glenn Kunkel. With 2 albums and 2 EP’s under his belt, Kunkel returns in 2015 with Gemini, produced in collaboration with F.J. DeSanto from Hypefactor. They draw influences from Depeche Mode, Tears for Fears, New Order, Massive Attack.
The third full length album can be branded as an ode to his signature sound, which has placed The New Division at the forefront of modern new wave music today. These 13 songs feature an eclectic mix of sonorous guitar hooks complemented by synth leads eerily narrating times past, all the while remaining boldly in the present.
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.
ACTORS (Vancouver, BC)
ACTORS hails from Vancouver, B.C: (AMAZING Post punk)!
The term “post-punk”, like many terms with a similar prefix, is firmly planted in a time in history, and signifies an added precision and experimentation to a thrilling genre that has echoed forward in both style and attitude. The Jason Corbett-led outfit ACTORS are standing on the shoulders of titans with their brand of the style, and could almost be referred to as “post-post-punk”.
Give them a listen!
