In late 2015, an upstart band from the U.K. named Nothing But Thieves turned heads with their self-titled debut album (click here for more on that), their blend of aggressive riffs, infectious harmonies and the soaring vocals of lead guitarist/singer Conor Mason helping them make an immediate impact.
On Sept. 8 (two months ago), the band released their sophomore album, Broken Machine, which expands upon the blueprint laid out by their self-titled album — and pushes them even further, creatively, as they continue carving their own place in the current rock scene, with most songs holding up a critical mirror to society, thematically.
This week, Nothing But Thieves premiered a video for “Particles,” one of the album’s strongest cuts:
This video is the third released from Broken Machine. Here’s their clip for “Sorry”:
Other songs, such as “Live Like Animals” and “I’m Not Made By Design” are definitely also worth checking out, as these guys have put together a very strong, fiercely intriguing sound at such a young point in their career.
