Wow! Just, wow. HINDS is everything an indie rock band could ever dream to be. This indie rock band from Madrid is so powerfully raw that you’ll think they are the ones who created rock music.
Starting in 2011 as a duo doing primarily covers, Carlotta Cosials and Ana García Perrote built a small following with their strong vocals and guitars skills. After recruiting Ade Martin on bass and Amber Grimbergen on drums, the duo became an epic foursome of spirit and attitude for the indie rock scene.
Their first album, Leave Me Alone, came out January of this year full of smashing hits. There is something impressively simple and thoroughly amazing about this these four girls. I realized it sounds like they are the first people to ever pick up guitars and drums and sing at the same time. I mean this in the best way possible, as if they are the first ones to discover what rock music could be. Their style is all from them, no outside influences or pressures from the world, you hear these artists pour every ounce of their soul into every track. The guitars meld together on every song and their layering vocals are so sweet and driven by emotion, it’s addicting. I hope you can hear it the same way I do, and the more you listen, the more you see their raw talent and personality in every note.
Their new music video for “Warts” is a punch in the face message about loving the wrong person and watching a train wreck of a relationship. The description in the video says, “have you ever seen a couple that shouldn’t be a couple? Have you ever seen your friend’s girlfriend’s warts before he does?…..She is gonna beat him bad, but he only hears parabarabaraba.” It has everything a indie rock band should have: style, originality and a sound that stay with you all day.
Enjoy this wonderfully bittersweet music video and check out the rest of the album Leave Me Alone, with songs like Bamboo, Warts, San Diego and Garden, you’ll never want to listen to anything else this summer.
