Press for Hinds ‘Leave Me Alone’
''This magical youthful energy they exude in everything they do is exactly why Hinds have gone from strength to strength over the past few years.’'
8/10 Line of Best Fit
Who knows where this promising debut will lead, but only Hinds can guess.
Dirty and pure, Leave Me alone is a remarkable debut: one for nights of excess and the hangovers that follow''
8/10 Drowned in Sound
Part of what makes 'Leave Me Alone' such a blast is the impression it gives of Hinds as a tight-knit girl gang, on and off record.''
With thirty sold-out shows on their UK/European tour and a US tour that kicked off with a sold out show NYC Bowery Ballroom, (Tickets were gone a month before and Heartbroken fans queued down the blocks and were only appeased when Hinds announced a free show At Rough Trade) the only way to describe what is happening with Hinds right now is that they're f*** killing it!
No girl group in recent years has caused the furore that Hinds has. Four girls under 25 from Spain and a teenage drummer from Holland didn’t seem the most likely break out band of 2015 but in a jaded musical landscape of hipster beards and bland synth-pop tunes that screamed made for sync, Hinds ramshackle, youthful energy and couldn’t give a f*** attitude was clearly what the world was clearly waiting for. There’s no pretence or artifice to Hinds live performance it is straight up rock n roll, bursting with energy.
Their exuberant live shows and audience reaction mirror the magic of early shows from The Ramones, The Strokes and The Libertines so it’s no surprise they have supported the last two, along with The Vaccines and The Black Lips. Although the girls cite their influences as more recent contemporary Mac DeMarco.
Hinds formed while Carla Cosials and Ana Perrote were at college and were hanging out in the garage/lo-fi Madrid scene. After releasing two tracks ‘Bamboo’ and ‘Trippy Gum’ under the band name ‘Deers’ they were named band of the week by The Guardian and championed by NME. Friends Ade Martin on bass and Amber Grimbergen on drums were then added.
This year Hinds have embarked on a second world tour playing Reading and Leeds later this year. The buzz for Hinds live shows has been incredible, the infectious dymamic between Cosials and Perrote's hazy Spanish accented vocals which just seem to playfully trip over each other have an undeniable charm. But although it seems like Hinds are holding the biggest party in every town, they take their role seriously and are determined to create a more postive space for young women to create lo-fi music. As Martin states "If you're a woman in the music industry, it's impossible to be there floating like a fish, expecting that nothing will touch you. In some way, at some point, it will happen," ... "But we're gonna make it right!”
The hype for Hinds debut album 'Leave Me Alone' has been huge. The crictics have lauded the album recieving great reviews from NME, Pitchfork, Line of Best Fit, Consequence of Sound, Drowned in Sound to name but a few.
