Bus People - "Luck"

Hailing from Corner Brook, Newfoundland and Labrador, Bus People have just released their debut single. "Luck" is a lo-fi keyboard jam. It's one of the best examples of modern bedroom indie pop around these days. It's a weird little song that is going to win you over with nothing more than pure charm. "Luck" most likely personifies the description of twee, but I hesitate to call it that because it seems like Bus People are a little more than twee (as much as we adore twee around here). I might stick with that, but the song does erupt into a more standard indie rock ending, which is what helps elevate this song to being spectacular.

Aley Waterman and Scott Sheppard (aka Bus People) say of their new single:

"Our debut single, 'Luck,' was inspired by a nostalgia for being a young teenager in a small town. The conflicts of the time felt so simple when looking back through the lens of adulthood. 

"There’s a calm narrative throughout the verses but we wanted to capture an unhinged energy in the choruses that really reflects a desire to go back to the innocence of youth when that concept becomes an impossibility."
