QRTR Track Of The Week #21
1 April 2020
Nothing But Thieves – Is Everybody Going Crazy?
‘Is Everybody Going Crazy’ is a fresh sound for the band that delivers in spades. Opening with a gritty rock riff, the track launches into lead singer Conor’s triumphantly versatile and intensely euphoric vocal, which builds into a frenzied dark pop chorus that is as at home on the dance floor as it is filling stadiums. Lyrically it discusses a fractured, barely recognizable civilization and desire for escapism
The band says this about the track;
“There is a quiet sadness about the verses. The character in the song doesn’t understand the world around themselves or relate to the people in it. What they once thought were the principles or morals they were meant to follow no longer seem to apply. Others seem to revel in the lunacy. In a place like that, it makes you realize that you need something to hang onto, like an anchor. There are a few elements of escapism throughout the song, whether it is through another person, stealing a moment to switch off or changing their mentality.”
