Nothing But Thieves wrote its current single “Is Everybody Going Crazy?” in reference to the year 2019 and the things that made it a “wounded, sinister place.” But when the song premiered in early March of this year, it felt even more apt describing the first few months of 2020. Indeed, most of Moral Panic, the third album from the Essex-based British rock band, feels like it was written for this year — even though the album’s 11 songs were mostly written during 2019. Over the span of those 11 tracks, the band — Mason, along with guitarists Joe Langridge-Brown and Dominic Craik, bassist Philip Blake and drummer James Price — takes the listener through the fever-in-the-air feeling of life right now. Mason and his bandmates get to work out that frustration, along with other feelings, on Moral Panic. By the end of it, they — and we, the listeners — are left with the sheer catharsis of it all.
