The Pin Show: Music Spotlight

We’re just one day away from the biggest fashion show in Dallas, The 10th annual Pin Show. The platform that aims to bring attention to Texas in areas of fashion, music and installations. This year’s show will feature performances from Zhora, NITE and Sam Lao. Check out exclusive interviews about what they’re anticipating most about the show. Canadian-born twins, KUntitled design (9)yle and Myles Mendes, make up the music group NITE. The Dallas based duo has a distinctive sound mixing electronic tinged rock with some influence from 80's pop. NITE says their music represents their subtle differences, while also highlighting their similarities. “Kyle’s approach to his writing and vocal performance is different, yet cohesive with the way I write and sing," Myles said. "When the songs are combined they sound like they came from the same place." The brothers fell in love with music at a young age. “When we were 6 years old, we had a Casio keyboard which introduced us to synth tones and cheesy electronic drum beats. We’d pretend we knew how to play it and dreamed of the day when we could,” Kyle said. NITE will be performing singles from their new album “Reborn” at the Pinshow. They are most excited about sharing the stage with Zhora and Sam Lao. Zhora has a reputation of high energy performaUntitled design (11)nces with amazing visuals. She produces music that people can dance to because that’s what she loves to do. “I love to dance. Bass and drums fuel my fire,” Zhora said. Her recent EP ‘Lights’, a collaborative piece with producer Adam Pickrell and writer Tiger Darrow, was featured in the filmed ‘Never Going Back’ and premiered at Sundance. As a returning performer for the Pinshow, Zhora is looking forward to the underlying message of this year’s show. We’ve all gone through a lot in the last year; in regards to the political climate and sexual harassment allegations," she said. "To reflect on these things is to (continue for most but to begin for some) the healing process and empowerment for those who feel are unheard."
