Nothing But Thieves sound like: they’re about to drop their game-changing second album on everyone in the next week

Similar artists: Catfish & The Bottlemen, Kodaline, Muse, Arctic Monkeys

Their story: Nothing But Thieves are five chaps from Southend – Conor, Joe, Dom, Price and Phil – who fortunately are substantially more than just thieves, if that’s what they even are.

They released their debut self-titled album back in 2015 and, following selling over 250,000 copies and stream over 174 million times, the last 18 months have been ridiculous for the five guys.

The band spent a big chunk of 2016 in the US, whereby they became the biggest selling UK rock band in that country that year as well as playing high-profile performances on late night shows such as Jimmy Kimmel, Conan O’Brien and James Corden.

They are now gearing up to release their second album called Broken Machine on 8 September, from which they have today revealed the video for the title track, exclusive to metro.co.uk below.

Not usually my thing but the title track Broken Machine is really good.

Most of their singles are "hit or miss" for me, "Broken Machine" is interesting
