Having recently announced their new album Dead Club City for release on July 7th, Nothing But Thieves drop their brand new single Overcome. Premiered as Clara Amfo’s Hottest Record in the World on Radio 1, Overcome is a massive pop rock track laden with 80s nostalgia. The accompanying videodirected by Teeeezy C (Central Cee, Unknown T) offers another glimpse into Dead Club City, the fictional city depicted in their conceptual new album.
The band comment on the new track:
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.
