Nothing But Thieves have shared the surreal video for their recently released single “Real Love Song”, which is taken from their forthcoming new album Moral Panic and follows their recent single Is Everybody Going Crazy?.
Produced by Mike Crossey (The 1975, Arctic Monkeys and Wolf Alice), Real Love Song was included as Annie Mac’s Hottest Record in the World before being added to the B List on Radio 1 and has already achieved almost 3 million streams worldwide.
Speaking about the video, the band say;
“As an audience, we are often presented something that is excessive or overblown, especially when it comes to love stories. We wanted the video to capture the irony of the song whilst making sure it was still affecting. This is a song within a song and the video, with its nods to the modern relationship and its sensationalised band moments, tell two sides of the same story. Where does the cynicism end and the real begin? It was amazing to work with Basak and her team who totally got where we were going and created a story that works on these different levels. This is a love song, so what?”
Remaining on the Radio 1 Playlist for 8 weeks, as one of the longest running tracks on their playlist, Is Everybody Going Crazy? was the band’s biggest Airplay hit to date, achieving 10 million streams worldwide and welcoming the exciting return of Nothing But Thieves. A gritty dark rock song, lyrically it discusses a fractured, barely recognizable civilization and desire for escapism, which proved curiously relevant to the world right now.
Real Love Song and 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, their 2017 acclaimed album Broken Machine, which charted at #2 in the UK album chart, and their debut self-titled album Nothing But Thieves. They have recently announced the release of their third album Moral Panic, which will be released on 10/23/2020.
