Of course, given that Busted have never been a powerhouse band in terms of innovation or technical songcraft (because why would they be? They know their eggs so well when it comes to delivering great pop hooks and lyrics that are witty, barmy, and which occasionally touch a chord.

Today, they also announce two extra shows on 24 th March at Newcastle’s o2 Academy and 25 th March in Southampton at O2 Guildhall.Busted are a totally schooling in lazy formulaic songwriting in ‘Half Way There’ and sometimes it’s funny and sometimes it’s charming but mostly it’s just annoying. Even back when the pop-rock and pop-punk they were so mercenarily emulating, it was telling that Busted always remained firmly in the boyband territory; the sound wasn’t that far from the genuine article in the early 2000s, but both musicianship and lyricism that drew from territory spanning from base to outright stupid was always a heavy implication of the pop machinations behind the scenes to make that sound even more marketable. There’s something refreshing about listening to a pop band that isn’t trying to conform with what is charting well and just doing what they want.

I'm kind of tempted to listen now to see what it's like, but I don't want Busted to end up as one of my artists on Spotify or have them constantly come up in my suggested videos on YouTube (which has happened in the past previous times I've checked out artists due to curiosity). The chorus of this track is at the very top of the band’s catalogue and guarantees multiple repeat listens as the trio’s vocals wriggle and thrive between your ears. The ‘ Year 3000’-esque ‘ Shipwrecked in Atlantis’ delivers another fantastical flight of fancy, while ‘ Race to Mars’ takes a look at the space race in a tribute to Elon Musk and Tesla, and once again taps into the band’s penchant for a pop culture reference or two in its lyrics.
