Following the release of their #3 album Moral Panic last October, Southend four piece Nothing But Thieves have just dropped their brand new single Futureproof. Their first new music since last year’s third full length, Futureproof was premiered by on BBC Radio 1 as Annie Mac’s Hottest Record in the World. Watch and listen below.
Speaking about the track the band said:
’Futureproof’ is about self-preservation; what that means to different people and the lengths that those people would go to achieve it. It’s designed to be a guitar rock and hip hop hybrid. That can be a bit of an eye roller and it’s easy to get wrong, but there’s a parallel between some of our heavier songs and the more aggressive side of hip hop, which we wanted to try and get at. It’s dark and chromatic and then it’s mixed like a hip hop track with loud drums and vocals. The idea was to try and explore that territory in the most authentic and fresh way.
The new track arrives ahead of the band’s massive UK, Ireland and European tour kicking off in September. The tour includes their biggest show to date at the O2 Arena in London. Tickets are available here*.
