English band Nothing But Thieves have announced their bold brand new single "Is Everybody Going Crazy?"
The tune 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.
Produced by Mike Crossey (The 1975, Arctic Monkeys and Wolf Alice), it is a fresh sound for the band that delivers in spades. Opening with a gritty rock riff, the track launches 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 dancefloor as it is filling stadiums. Lyrically it discusses a fractured, barely recognisable civilisation and desire for escapism. The band say;
“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. Others seem to revel in the lunacy. In a place like that, it makes you realise that you need something to hang onto, like an anchor. 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.”
