EDITORS’ NOTES

Cackling with energy and warmth, this debut album from the Madrid-based quartet is an effortless joy. Carlotta Cosials and Ana Perrote’s dual vocals circulate in a hazy mist around giddy guitars to produce gorgeous garage-pop gems like the woozy “San Diego” and bouyant “Warts.” But it’s not all sun-drunk and carefree. “Catigadas En El Granero” is a feverish riot while “And I Will Send Your Flowers Back” and “I’ll Be Your Man” reveal the band’s vulnerable—and joyously vengeful—side.

I'm not a troll but sampling this album was so bad I had to say something . get yourself an 80s 4 track recorder , a bunch of talentless trashy young drunk chicks and record them wasted singing to 60s and 70s tv show theme music . I wish I was the record label on this because they're gonna make millions off you mindless drones . lol sad but true . enjoy it if you like it .

Wow.

This album has such a profound psychedelic nature that exudes a true dreamlike quality. I love the vocals and instruments, hazy and unedited, and the nostalgic feelings they induce. I give this album 5/5 stars without a doubt…but what do I know, I’m fifteen :)))

I tried to like it

I can't like music where the vocals are awful and the music reminds me of some horrible 80s tape. I don't hear anything that I could stand to listen to. What I really don't get is how they were promoted on here like they are the next all female rock group, when really great bands get passed over. Don't waste your time or money if you love music from artist with great vocals and that play instruments well.

About Hinds

Spain in the 2010s was a hotbed for garage rock bands, mostly fronted and populated by men. The four women of Hinds broke the mold and in the process became the most successful of them all. The band was originally formed in Madrid in 2011 by Carlotta Cosials and Ana García Perrote, two young women tired of hanging out while their friends made music. After learning the basics of guitar, the duo released a pair of lo-fi demos on their Bandcamp page under the name Deers. Released in the summer of 2014, those two noisy, melodic pop tunes, "Bamboo" and "Trippy Gum," caught the attention of several U.K. publications like NME and The Guardian. Within months, Deers had expanded to a quartet with addition of bassist Ade Martín and drummer Amber Grimbergen. A second single release, "Barn," followed in November of that year, after which Deers were forced to change their name due to a legal threat by another band already using it. Under their new moniker, Hinds, they continued to expand their touring range across Europe and the U.K., releasing a split single with fellow Spaniards the Parrots in April 2015 and appearing on a compilation from garage-centric U.S. label Burger Records. Their debut album, Leave Me Alone, arrived in January 2016 on Lucky Number in the U.K. and Mom + Pop in the U.S. The band toured the world to promote the album throughout the rest of the year, released a deluxe version of the album, and were named a winner of a 2017 European Border Breakers Award. The band continued to tour in 2017, though they also took time to record a song, "A Rodar," for the Spanish release of the film Cars 3. The quartet also began working on their second album, this time co-producing the album themselves with the help of Gordon Raphael (the Strokes, Regina Spektor). 2018's I Don't Run was again released by the team of Lucky Number and Mom + Pop, and featured a slightly cleaned-up and punchier garage pop sound. ~ Timothy Monger
