Nightbus - Average Boy (Official Video)

Having rounded off a brilliant break-through year in 2023, Manchester's Nightbus have returned this week with their scintillating new single Average Boy. With a big 80's synth-pop influence, the track's pulsating melodies and hazing atmospheres create another intoxicating listen as the band look set to capitalise on a promising year ahead. Speaking about the new track Nightbus say: “‘Average Boy’ is a narrative I’m sure many of us can relate to. The feeling of inadequacy, dysphoria, a longing for something that might never materialise. Those small moments that feel like destiny reduced to bittersweet memories. We all search for something, we get caught in cycles, we lose our way, half the time we don’t even know what we’re looking for. Gender, perspective, culture , we are all in some way the average boy.” They continue: “‘Average Boy’ resembles a lonely club night, there’s a strong sense of identity attached to the track. We have well and truly jumped two feet into the electronic realm with this one. With the help of producers Alex Greaves and Syd Minsky-Sargeant we are embodying what Nightbus was always meant to be.” Take a listen for yourselves.
