Some People Never Change is the fifth album from Leeds-based three-piece Nervous Twitch. After one listen I was confident it was my favourite album of this year so far. After two, I knew it would be an all-time favourite.

I can honestly say there is not a single track on Some People Never Change that dips into mediocre. The care in crafting each one is obvious, and makes all the difference. Nervous Twitch deliver it all – life-affirmations, quiet contemplations, much-needed reassurances, individual and societal callings out – with a wit, intelligence and an impressive range of musical stylings. All this makes the album a compulsive listen.

“Propelled by the momentum from our 2020 release we formed our new album…whilst trapped indoors the world was making bread, we were making an album! We are incredibly proud of our work and can’t wait for people to hear it.”
