Liverpool indie rock/punk/post punk band Eyesore & The Jinx have unleashed their new single “Nocturnal Athletes (Ode To Bruno)“.
‘Nocturnal Athletes (Ode to Bruno)’’ vividly depicts the scene of a late night gym session. Speaking about it, Josh Miller (vocals, bass) says:
“Bruno Mars and I go way back. Our relationship began in mid-2021, shortly after the death of my mother which was followed by a period of ill-health and what was in hindsight a breakdown. I joined a gym in a feeble attempt to somehow rebuild myself and grip some structure which had evaded me like a wet bar of soap.
In order to avoid the kind of people I’d always told myself occupied gyms, I began exercising very late at night alongside shift workers, competitive bodybuilders and other similarly self-conscious weight lifters. It was there that me and Bruno met. His porcelain smile, slick dance moves and sustained success beaming down at me from the Pure Gym TV screens, a stark contrast to the wasteland my life had become at that time.
I’d like to say that I took great comfort in Bruno and his music during those intervening months. I didn’t. Time did its thing, and I moved on. But he was always there, a singular, gyrating constant, looming over me whilst I struggled to lift 10kg dumbbells. .”
