Manchester-based post punk/new wave/alt band Nightbus have premiered their new single “Exposed to Some Light“, and its accompanying video.
Nightbus make an eclectic range of music, with inspiration being drawn from post punk, alternative and electronica.
Commenting on the single, they say:
“‘Exposed To Some Light’ for some time felt like a jigsaw, glueing the pieces together was a timely process. Originally taking the form of a poem written over the course of a cold and mundane January weekend, but it became a sign post for us as a band and a favourite of many in our live shows.”
“To ‘expose something to light’ for us means to bring something to the forefront of your mind and current head space. It can be negative, positive or perhaps neutral. By being aware of this certain something or feeling it can bring about many things; the death of an ego or perhaps the birth of a new chapter. It’s a track that is drenched in unremembered nostalgia, with an underlying sense of dread and a dark synergy. We wanted to retain a sense of narrative almost like we were soundtracking a true and relatable main character moment.”
