Nothing But Thieves (UK)

Nothing But Thieves

Alternative rock band Nothing But Thieves created an immense buzz with their debut album in 2015. It rose to the top 10 on the British charts and took the band to sharing stages with rock greats such as Arcade Fire, Twenty One Pilots and Muse. The awaited second album is released in the autumn and its first single Amsterdam has gotten loads of radio airplay in Finland as well.

NBT continues the glorious tradition of British guitar rock; the songs are ambitious, they smell of youth and catch in your ear like an infection. Their music has been compared to bands like Foals and The Neighbourhood. Singer Connor Mason's voice is a mesmerising combination of sensitivity and rage, and no wonder, because he has mentioned as his influence none other than Jeff Buckley. The upcoming album is most likely going to be a break-through into the heavy league of rock bands for them, so this is the perfect chance to check out Nothing But Thieves!
