Fresh from releasing their 4-track EP What Did You Think When You Made Me This Way? earlier this month, Nothing But Thieves dropped in to the Music Box studio for a special stripped-down session.

As noted in my Now Hear This column, frontman Conor Mason has one of the best voices in modern rock – something he seemed to prove quite effortlessly for this particular session.

He and guitarist/keys player Dom performed three tracks: "Forever & Ever More", their single off the new EP, "Particles", from their most recent album Broken Machine, and "If I Get High", which was taken from their debut, self-titled album released in 2015.

Sharing the full story, not just the headlines

While all of the tracks sound superb as acoustic versions, the rendition of "If I Get High" was a particular emotional one (one member of the video team, who shall not be named, shed a few tears during filming).

Watch the session in full (above) and check out the band's latest EP, which is out now.

The band have four massive UK dates coming up in November, at the Motorpoint Arena in Cardiff (19 Nov), the O2 Apollo in Manchester (20 Nov), Alexandra Palace in London (23 Nov), and O2 Academy Birmingham (24 Nov).

Music Box season 4 continues every Monday at 12pm until 26 November. Watch all of the latest sessions here
