Sometimes when listening to Nothing But Thieves, it’s easy to forget that they’re passionately intense. The vocal is what tends to cause this; a masculine vocal with a lot of high notes generally gives a vibe of tenderness as opposed to intensity.
Nothing better to dispell that misconception than this live rendition of their track ‘Wake Up Call’ though. Filmed for Vevo Lift, it captures the live intensity of the song while also delivering the trademark high notes. The drums especially fall out of the speakers, pounding and crashing through the mix to demonstrate the raw brutality and power that reinforces the empassioned vocal.
