Nothing But Thieves introduced their fourth album ‘Dead Club City’ with lead single ‘Welcome to the DCC’ earlier this year and continue to unveil further insight into the themes and ideas around their new record with brand new single ‘Overcome’.
With socially insightful lyrics and an adept ability to progress their sound and experiment between the diverse genres that shape them as a band, Nothing But Thieves showcased their more sonically left field sound and made a statement return with ‘Welcome to the DCC’, marking an innovative new chapter with their fourth record ‘Dead Club City’, released on 7th July via RCA/Sony Music. ‘Welcome to the DCC’ is A-List on Radio 1 and Radio X and has also become the band’s biggest ever airplay track to date.
New single ‘Overcome’ received its world premiere as Clara Amfo’s Hottest Record in the World on Radio 1 last night. An epic pop track that has a fragment of nostalgia yet feels captivatingly modern, it is uniquely Nothing But Thieves. Backed by an anthemic melody and 80s synths, the track builds to an uplifting and euphoric chorus that captures the mood of the album and echoes the feelings of escapism, hope and new beginnings. The video directed by Teeeezy C (Central Cee, Unknown T) gives another visual glimpse into ‘Dead Club City’ and portrays a couple’s own escapist story within the city, set against a backdrop of a live performance by the band. They say;
“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.”
