The last decade saw the resurgence of good garage rock bands in Spain, many of them all-male bands. The Hinds broke that trend and became probably the most successful of them all. The Hinds was formed in Madrid in 2011 by Carlotta Cosials and Ana García Perrote, two young women who were fed up with looking on while their male friends made music. They picked up their guitars and learned the basics to write their first songs. Soon after they released their first demos on the platform Bandcamp. It was 2014 and the songs were “Bamboo” and “Trippy”, which soon caused a buzz in the music press, and received praise from NME and The Guardian. It was difficult to remain indifferent to those melodic and lively songs with a degree of pop and teenage appeal. The band then became a four piece as bassist Ade Martín and drummer Amber Grimbergen joined. Just as they released the single entitled “Barn” they changed their name to ‘Hinds’, having used the name ‘Deers’ up to that point. Their debut album, Leave Me Alone, was released in January 2016 under Lucky Number in the UK and Mom + Pop in the US. Over the following months they toured Europe and readied themselves for the release of their second album, I Don’t Run, produced by Gordon Raphael (The Strokes, Regina Spektor…). Their fresh garage pop is more polished in this album than it was at the beginning. Now their third album is in the pipeline. Single “Riding Solo” has been produced by Jenn Decilveo (Bat for Lashes, Anne-Marie) and presents a band continuously in search of something new for their music, without losing their irreverence and knack for catchy tunes.
