Since bursting onto the DIY scene, Hinds – Ana Perrote, Carlotta Cosials, Ade Martin and Amber Grimbergen – have mastered a raw and playful sound all their own. They have also established themselves as one of the most exciting emerging acts and, with the forthcoming release of Leave Me Alone on 8 January via Lucky Number, show no sign of slowing down.
Twelve perfectly imperfect and charmingly lo-fi tracks inspired by contemporary American garage rockers like Mac DeMarco, Ty Segall and The Black Lips, Leave Me Alone is an exciting introduction to the fun-loving quartet pioneering the burgeoning indie music scene in Madrid. Weaving sun-kissed, 60’s-inspired melodies, executed with a genius call-and-response between co-vocalists and band co-founders Perrote and Cosials, Hinds create the ultimate soundtrack to the best day ever – from start to finish – spent with your four best friends on Leave Me Alone. Featuring their first-ever single “Bamboo,” bright surf-pop tune “San Diego,” the mixed-tempo “Fat Calmed Kiddos,” a bitter ode to shitty boyfriends in “And I Will Send Your Flowers Back,” and 8 more tracks of pure garage rock greatness, Leave Me Alone is guaranteed to bring the Mediterranean sun to you wherever you are in the world at any time of the year.
To celebrate the release of the album, the foursome are streaming the album early in its entirety via NPR – have a listen here.
Hinds perform at Manchester’s Gorilla on 20 February 2016.
