When I first heard music from Nothing But Thieves in May, I had a feeling I might have found my new favorite band. After hearing more music from the band, especially their new song “If I Get High”, I was sure of it. A perfect mixture of blood-pumping rock, incredible lyrics, and vocals about as swoon-worthy and passionate as Jeff Buckley, it’s hard not to be in love. Dom from the band says of the track:
“This is track 5 on our album. This was one of the songs where we’d recorded the demo back in the garage in Essex. And trying to re-create, re-record and re-play the parts during the recording of the album wasn’t quite capturing what we’d first got from the demo so we made the conscious decision to just rip out my whole guitar part and put it into the session and even take some of Conor’s vocals and some of the weird sonics that were in there. We didn’t want to lose what was special about it. – Dom”
