“Mindwaves is a rightly-named psych-experimental rock band from Canada who recently released and an album entitled Horizons. Their sound is sophisticated and layered and has many connotations of past, present, and future. It can be compared to something akin to Radiohead mixed with David Bowie and Pink Floyd. Each song has a fingerprint that it softly presses upon your third eye and results in an ethereal listening experience."
-The Equal Ground

Mindwaves was born in a friend's basement in early 2011. Since then, the band has lost two members and gained another, resulting in today's version of the band: a four-figured ensemble of experienced, talented and motivated musicians. The band plays weekend gigs at local bars and at festivals in the summer.

Mindwaves consists of Jamie Crawford, James Wonnacott, Simon Joseph and Josh MacNeil. The band performs a dynamic, high energy set that draws the listener in with engaging uptempo riffs and captures them with hypnotic grooves and catchy vocal lines.

On September 5th, 2014, Horizons EP was released at Baba's Lounge in Charlottetown, and was received warmly by friends and fans, adding numbers to the band's fan-base. The album can be listened to at

Currently, the band is working on an LP which is expected to be released in 2016.
