Since forming in 2012, Nothing But Thieves have become one of England's biggest musical exports, touring the world, playing the late-night TV talk show circuit in America and hitting the Top 10 in the UK.
But it’s not all been smooth sailing. As the band toured the US off the back of their 2015 debut album, frontman Conor Mason suffered a breakdown, unsettled by the divorce of his parents, the rigours of the road and a mind that he says would not slow down.
As he explains in this interview he’s since learned to tame those impulses, and has found happiness through concentrating on mindfulness. He also talks about the early days of the band, why they struggled to be accepted, and his formative years singing at school.
