Hailing from Enfield, London, Thousand Thoughts have effectively exploded onto the modern alternative scene, seemingly from nowhere! Taking cues from the much-loved genres of nu-metal,pop-punk and alt-rock, the young quartet have risen from their initial formation to a label signing with Marshall Records and a single release in just a matter of months.

Back in January 2017, Thousand Thoughts performed together for the very first time under their original name ‘Elswhere’, and it wasn’t long before the band were showing off their skills at local shows. It was at one such show that they were discovered by fledgling record label Marshall Records, and quickly moved on to bigger events like Wilkestock festival, performing alongside the likes of VANT, Razorlight and The Sherlocks. Despite this, the band maintain their strong stance on mental health issues and the well-being of others, with a string of successful charity performances.

Thousand Thoughts’ debut ‘This One’s For You’ was released 22nd June under their original name ‘Elswhere’, through Marshall Records and; Eleven Seven Music. With support from Kerrang Radio, Rock Sound and BBC Introducing, the track is still causing a stir in the alt rock scene even after release, approaching 100,000 Spotify streams and 200,000 YouTube views.
