Talented Southend band ‘Nothing But Thieves’ needed a brand new website to share all of their music and tour updates.
With an audience making most of their music discovery online, we aimed to develop a site that would both capture fans attention and offer added value to their listening experience.
- Client SONY Music
- Project Band website
- Highlight Awwwards.com Site of the day
Nothing But Thieves artwork features a circular graphic which has fast become a strong and recognisable part of their brand. Drawing upon this artwork and using WebGL and the Web Audio API we created a visualisation that moves and reacts to the sound waves of each track. Fans can select and watch the hypnotising graphic pulse and dance to their chosen song. Integrating the content with design in this way provides an alternative experience exclusive to the site and reflecting the band’s character. The ring is a visual device carried throughout the rest of the site. Using parallax scrolling, it spins and transforms as the site is navigated. The result is an exciting and bold site, that genuinely suits the content and band.

Since launch, the site has had an fantastic response. It's picked up great recognition amongst fans and web designers alike, and also scooped up 'Site of the day' on Awwwards.com.
