On The Rise: HINDS

Hinds On The Rise

“Our Motto Is ‘Our Shit, Our Rules” Hinds told NME. Of course it is. With their infectious feel good vibes and groovy girl power tunes, Hinds are here to have fun. Hinds are a bad-ass lo-fi garage party act with hearts of gold, from Madrid. Formally known as Deers, the band started as a duo in 2011 between Carlotta Cosials and Ana García Perrote.

In 2014, they released two mini EPs on Bandcamp (DEMO + BARN) and grew into a quartet with Ade Martín on bass & Amber Grimbergen on drums. They changed their name to Hinds (as in female deers) in early 2015 due to the threat of legal action from a similarly named band. Over the past year, Hinds have been slaaaaaaying the festival circuit from SXSW to Glastonbury, taking names and breaking hearts along the way. While many are quick to compare the gals to Mac DeMarco, something tells us they could drink + smoke ol’ Mac under the table and put the kid to shame. To truly get their vibe, check out their video for “Chili Town” below, which features the Hinds babes simply having a good time.

Hinds released their EP Very Best Of Hinds So Far with Mom + Pop this past August and their debut LP titled Leave Me Alone is due out January 8th 2016. Check out their latest single “Garden” off the upcoming album below.

You can pre-order Leave Me Alone on Apple Music. Follow Hinds on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram & Tumblr. You can also catch Hinds on tour at one of the below dates.
