Nightbus Share New Single ‘Exposed To Some Light’

Frosted synth-pop with post-punk overtones...

Nightbus have shared new single ‘Exposed To Some Light’.

The Manchester trio have caused a buzz with their potent yet restrained sound, melding icy, fractal synths with a minimalist, post-punk chassis. Reminiscent of Cabaret Voltaire in places, you can also hear aspects of early Rapture, or Manchester’s own post-punk lineage.

Set to play London’s George Tavern on November 2nd, new single ‘Exposed To Some Light’ is out now via So Young Records. A terrific piece of songwriting, it shows real imagination, composed from multiple fragments while achieving a seamless whole.

Each instrument feels balanced, the taut musicality displaying Nightbus at their most unified. The group comment…

“‘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.” 

Tune in now.
