Manchester-based post punk/new wave/alt band Nightbus have premiered their new single “Mirrors“, alongside an accompanying music video.
The Joy Division-esque song is out now through So Young Records and is the follow up to their debut single “Way Past Three”, released last month. Buy it here.
Originally hailing from varying parts of the north of England, Nightbus found common ground in their mutual music taste. To make and write late-night music soon became the ethos of the band: soundtracking sleepless, frenzied nights out, the journey home and everything in between.
They make an eclectic range of music, with inspiration being drawn from post punk, alternative and electronica.
Commenting on the single, Nightbus say:
“‘Mirrors’ was one of the first tracks we wrote. The lyrics track the mind of delusion and confusion, a warped narrative that can only be resolved by that moment of realisation. The lyric “when these mirrors speak my mind it’s a lost direction” defines that moment I know many of us know far too well. It’s essentially the “what the fuck am I doing” part of the night. I think too many of us thrive within the reasons to get messed up, when in reality these nights always lead to regret, embarrassment or having to soothe yourself with some kind of justification.”
Nightbus are: Jake Cottier (guitar/production), Olive Melrose (vocals/guitar), and Zac Rees (bass/vocals).
