Last year we brought the excited Madrid four-piece, recently re-named Hinds to Australia for their first international tour. Between schooners and pots, late night gastronome and extended trips to Bondi, shows were played in dives along the East Coast. A year on, they’ve stayed on the road, booking dates around the globe and playing with greats at Glastonsbury, Benicàssim, South by Southwest (where they played 16 shows in four days), Burgerama and Best Kept Secret.
With a now worldwide fanbase, having hundreds of Hinds devotees join them on stage for the rambling, beer soaked hook closing “Davey Crockett” - Hinds have quickly outgrown the gentle steed of their namesake into a fully formed, almighty, heartbreaking beast.
Following on from their much loved and highly rotated EP, Garden, is their long-awaited LP, Leave Me Alone, released in January. Keeping things friendly, the album was produced by Hinds’ companion and often collaborator, Diego Garcia of The Parrots. It’s a twelve track representation of difference facets of relationships the young women have faced, a sadder but no less of a wild and giddy affair that charmed us in their early days of Deers.
We cant wait for them to return with new songs and old faves, and they're equally “excited as fuck” to come back to where it all began.
