Nothing But Thieves Premieres New Song “Overcome” on BBC Radio 1
British rock band Nothing But Thieves, consisting of Conor Mason (vocals/guitars), Joe Langridge-Brown (guitar), Dominic Craik (guitar/keyboard), Philip Blake (bass) and James Price (drums), premiered a new song “Overcome” on BBC Radio 1's Future Sounds with Clara Amfo.
The song is the second single off of their upcoming fourth studio album “Dead Club City”, which is set to be released on July 7, 2023.
The track was written by Joseph Langridge-Brown, Conor Mason, and Dominic Craik. Produced by Jonathan Gilmore.
The accompanying music video was directed by Teeeezy C.
The band said of the song in a statement, “Overcome has always felt like a 'throw your stuff in a bag and get away' song. Dead Club City (the city) would definitely feel enticing for someone like that. We're all battling something, so having a song on the album that would describe why someone would want change felt right.”
- The band first performed the song in front of their fans when they got back from Australia, they said as "the reaction was unbelievable. It's kind of unexpectedly good."
The band told Clara Amfo about the song, “I genuinely think our fans like it just allow us to do whatever we want. Because they know that's what we like to do is just simply like just writing songs for ourselves and hoping that people like them, essentially. And I think our fans have always kind of supported that and championed us with it. So it's great.”
They continued, “What was going to be the first thing goes in it, and then we realized that was stupid because someone told us it was stupid. But I guess it makes sense so in like the concept world we're living in this couple in 'Overcome' have seen the advert is 'Welcome to DCC' is the next step of the story. So it makes sense that way.”
They added, “Definitely, we've the first time in all of our campaigns we've been so stuck in with all of the creative, the art, the videos, everything so it's been quite meticulous. And it's, it's kind of daunting in the fact that if that goes terribly wrong, it's just completely our fault. But it's been a lot of fun for us, really get involved with that and piece by piece, make it work.”
