Mindofalion – Thinking Outside The Herd Self Titled EP and Tour Dates for Brighton Based Trio



Mindofalion – Thinking Outside The Herd

Self Titled EP and Tour Dates for Brighton Based Trio

Mindofalion are progressive thinkers. They are a statement for individuality, art, inspiration and positive attitudes. They 

exist against a background of travelled upbringing, and a desire to instil purity within their own lives and to stand against all 

they perceive is wrong with the world.

In many, this could be perceived as preaching – but brothers Jack (Drums) and Archie (Lyricist, Guitars) Brewis-Lawes, along 

with bassist Henna Malik, are doing anything but. To them, their band and its ethos is a way of embodying their own beliefs 

and an expression of their state of mind, done alongside the passion of touring and performing. If people appreciate what 

they have to say, then welcome, join the pride.

Originally from High Wycombe, the band are now based in Brighton. The brothers spent the last 8 years writing music 

together, and have been active on the touring circuit for 6 years, developing as musicians and gaining a respected 

reputation within the music industry as a stellar live band, hard workers and great writers. The band are all vegan, activists 

for the animal rights movement, and as humans have strong views on their own existence and their way of living – as 

detailed in their upcoming self titled EP.

Released on Friday July 18th, the record consists of three tracks of alternative indie, ranging from energy to ambience. It

tells a combined tale, incorporating the brothers UK housing estate single parent upbringing; time spent homeless on the 

streets; travels across the world, witnessing atrocity in 3rd world countries; seeing first hand extreme poverty during time 

sent in India; and their current existence in a western world that thrives off war and greed, a society built for a divide in 

wealth and power. As people, as a band, Mindofalion are trying be the change they want to see in the world. The release 

date of the record is also significant – as the anniversary of the birth of Nelson Mandela, it is a date that signifies how an 

individual can change the world by standing up for their own existence and beliefs. The EP is accompanied by a set of UK 

dates throughout July, culminating at Tramlines Festival in Sheffield.

You could be forgiven for attributing all this to an overtly political band – but front man Archie views it differently:

"We express our views and experiences of the world through our music. Through these experiences we've seen the purity 

of life and we live by that as a state of mind. We exist as a band for the enjoyment of music, our views and who we are is 

filtered through our music - if you like the sound, that’s wicked."

Mindofalion’s self titled EP is due for release on Friday 18th July. Check out the track ‘Obstacle’ here:
