2019 saw MINDSEED release Renovations, a follow-up EP to their debut album Households. It incorporated elements of alternative, hip-hop and even dance music while exploring socio-political, psychological and spiritual themes.
In September 2019, MINDSEED opened for hip-hop artist Tyga as part of the Unknown Calgary Fashion & Music Show at The Big Four Building.
During the COVID-19 lockdowns, Mindseed consistently wrote, recorded and released original songs every few weeks, establishing enough material to constitute their sophomore album Lockdown, released on February 26th, 2021.
Artistically, MINDSEED places emphasis on a strong sense of identity that is echoed throughout their music, visual art, and marketing.
