Nothing But Thieves Release New Single
Nothing But Thieves have released their bold brand new single “Is Everybody Going Crazy?” along with the lyric video via Sony Music UK/RCA Records. Watch HERE.
“Is Everybody Going Crazy?” is the band’s first new music since their 2018 EP “What Did You Think When You Made Me This Way” and their 2017 acclaimed album “Broken Machine,” which charted at #2 in the UK album chart.
The track starts with a gritty rock riff before launching into lead singer Conor’s triumphantly versatile and intensely euphoric vocal, which builds into a frenzied dark pop chorus that is as at home on the dance floor as it is filling stadiums. Lyrically it discusses a fractured, barely recognizable civilization and desire for escapism.
“There is a quiet sadness about the verses. The character in the song doesn’t understand the world around themselves or relate to the people in it. What they once thought were the principles or morals they were meant to follow no longer seem to apply,” said the band in describing the lyrics. “Others seem to revel in the lunacy. In a place like that, it makes you realize that you need something to hang onto, like an anchor.”
The band have performed on US TV shows such as James Corden and Jimmy Kimmel, after their debut became the bestselling debut from a UK rock band in the US in 2015 and played packed out international shows from Poland to Amsterdam, where they headlined an arena to 6,000 fans.
“There are a few elements of escapism throughout the song, whether it is through another person, stealing a moment to switch off or changing their mentality.” Seems like 6,000 people can agree.
