Nothing But Thieves are back with ‘If I Get High’, an earth-shaking alt-rock-pop stomper that is a masterclass in dynamic shifts.
The video, to our disappointment, doesn’t make any real explicit drug references despite the song title. I guess it’d be too easy to predict. Instead, the band went with something nearly as addictive: footage of the band performing live, gracing stages both small and large. This handily reflects the strength and size of the sound the song’s running with at the time.
Nothing But Thieves are still sounding like Radiohead with an attitude, and I love it.
