Summer Thieves Become Space Cowboys on New Single ‘Funny How the Mind Works’

‘Funny How the Mind Works’ will feature on Summer Thieves’ forthcoming third album

Summer Thieves have shared a new single and music video, “Funny How the Mind Works”.

The reggae rockers really know their way around a festival-ready track, with the amiable breeziness of “Funny How the Mind Works” sounding primed for a hazy afternoon under the sun.

The accompanying music video, directed by Taylor Mansfield, draws inspiration from iconic music videos like the Beastie Boys’ “Intergalactic”, and sees the band occupy a trippy space cowboy-themed space. You can watch the tongue-in-cheek clip below.

“Firstly we wanna say a big thank you to everyone who’s been on the journey with us over the years. This has been an awesome first run and we are only getting started on what’s to come,” Summer Thieves wrote on social media today.

“I remember we were re-tracking some guitars for another song on the album and I popped out the room picked up an acoustic and the song just came instantly. We went for a 90s hip hop vibe. Dylan cut samples and we smashed it out that day,” Jake from the band added.

“Funny How the Mind Works” will feature on Summer Thieves’ forthcoming third album, which is set for release later this year.

2023 will also see the band return to Australia to support L.A.B on their tour of the country (see full dates below). Summer Thieves have also recently performed to huge crowds at Kiwi festivals like Rhythm & Vines and Electric Avenue, and will be looking to maintain their impressive showings Down Under. The band also plan to return to Australia again in support of their upcoming third album.

Summer Thieves’ “Funny How the Mind Works” is out now.
