Manchester-based Nightbus release their new single - only their second-ever release - ‘Mirrors’ on So Young Records.

‘Mirrors’ is the follow up to the band’s red hot debut single ‘Way Past Three’ which was released last month to widespread acclaim and was described  as “Atmospheric, a little XX-esque … perfectly conjures the eeriness of the world outside as you leave a party in the small hours” by The Guardian’s Alexis Petridis. ‘Way Past Three’ also received praise from the likes of The Independent, The Fader, Brooklyn Vegan, The Line Of Best Fit, Dork, Dummy, Yuck Magazine, and more. 

Originally hailing from varying parts of the north of England, set behind a backdrop of haze with their mid 20s approaching, Nightbus (Olive, Jake and Zac) 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. Their atmospheric soundscapes beckon you into the mindset of a twenty-something, immersed in the damp, grey, vice soaked north west of England.

Expanding 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.”
