Nothing But Thieves If I Get High session

2016 is lining up to be a huge year for British rockers Nothing But Thieves. They’ve already hit the UK top 10 with their debut album, sold out a British tour and have confirmed an appearance on the top-rated US talk show with Jimmy Kimmel.

To mark the occasion, the band have given Radio X an exclusive clip of them performing their new single, If I Get High, acoustically. 

The film was shot at The Asylum, a former chapel in Peckham, and gives a new interpretation of the track from the band’s self-titled debut LP. 


The official video for If I Get High features actor RJ Mitte, who came to be known as “Walt Jr”, thanks to his turn on Breaking Bad.

The video treads familiar territory for Mitte, as he endures a broken family relationship, while seeking an escape from it. It’s the perfect illustration for the track - watch it below.
