See the band perform their 2017 single at Radio X Presents Nothing But Thieves with Barclaycard at the Clapham Grand In London.

Nothing But Thieves played a specially-streamed gig for Radio X listeners and Barclaycard customers in London last week.

The Southend-on-Sea outfit - made up of Conor Mason (vocals and guitars), Joe Langridge-Brown (guitar), Dominic Craik (guitar and keyboards), Phillip Blake (bass) and James Price (drums) - performed at the historic Clapham Grand, where they treated us to songs from across their three albums.

One such track which made it onto their setlist was Amsterdam- first single to be taken from their 2017 sophomore album Broken Machine.

A live audience was no longer possible due the government's current lockdown restrictions, but a select few lucky Radio X competition winners were able to watch the show in full via a livestream.

Watch them perform a stripped-back performance of Amsterdam in our video above.

The band also treated fans to a cover of Fleetwood Mac's classic 1977 single, Dreams, which has had quite a lot of attention recently due to a viral TikTok video.

Introducing the track, frontman Conor Mason called it: "One of the best songs ever written - a kind of schooling on how to write a song." He added: "We'll never write a song this good, so we'll cover it instead!"
