    Los Angeles musician Jack Kennedy and British vocalist Hannah Melbourn of NightBus have debuted their new single for "When the Night Time Comes" with an innovative technology.

    NightBus, an exhilarating new band featuring the aforementioned duo, forego the conventional way of listening to music on their debut single and EP, both titled When The Night Time Comes.

    With their feel good hooks and glittering looks, this retro-pop band is today's answers to The B-52s'-style dance music.

    The title track was recorded in a groundbreaking and unique sonic experience – three infectious singles in one, which creates an innovative way to hear a song taking note of the way two friends in today's pop culture listen to music by sharing one set of earbuds.

    The left and right tracks are 100% sonically different.

    When you listen on the left, you hear the song sung by Hannah backed by an electronic dance pop track; on the right, it's Jack's pop-rock version of the same song – not even the beat is the same. Yet, when you listen to both sides in conventional stereo, the songs mesh into another completely different, yet cohesive, song. Hence the name Stereo 3-Way showcasing three distinct ways of hearing the track: Jack's version, Hannah's version, and stereo version.

    Still with us?

    The single's release marks the first taste of new material from the band. And yes, it features the band's three distinct versions of the single recorded in stereo 3-way; Jack's version, Hannah's version, followed by the full stereo version.

    When the Night Time Comes EP Tracklist:

    1. When the Night Time Comes (Stereo 3-Way)
    2. When the Night Time Comes (Hannah's Version)
    3. When the Night Time Comes (Jack's Version)
    4. Across the Sea
    5. Twofer

    Listen below.



    Did you dig this unique way to listen to music? Or is it too confusing? Shut up and listen, peeps!
