Hinds make like a crudely animated, considerably bloodier Powerpuff Girls in their new alternate video for "Bamboo", two years after the original vid for the song that introduced us to the band back in summer 2014. Drawings and story by Laurina Paperina. The deluxe vinyl version of Leave Me Alone, featuring a ton of unreleased b-sides + demos, is out next month.

we take a lot of time to write songs. we usually jam and record it, then listen to it, then change it and record the new version etc. so this is a mobile recording from our song fat calmed kiddos, done in 24/may/2014:
It's been almost two years since Madrid's Ana Perrote + Carlotta Cosials started Hinds (fka Deers), and after releasing a handful of infectious, perfectly ramshackle singles, adding two new members (Ade Martin on bass and Amber Grimbergen on drums), becoming the stars of their own video game, and playing roughly a million shows all over the world (including a couple of the most vibrant and purely enjoyable shows we've ever witnessed), the group's debut full-length has finally arrived...

After quickly becoming one of our favorite new bands over the last year or so — via a string of undeniably infectious singles and their insanely fun live shows -- Madrid's HINDS have finally announced their debut -full-length Leave Me Alone, out in January 2016 on Mom + Pop / Lucky Number. The group says of the new record:
"okay, (big sigh) believe it or not, this is the announcing of our debut album.
let's start from the beginning. garden is the first track of twelve songs. why?
do you know when musicians say they hate their songs? we don't know if that's true, we only know it's not in our case.. 'cause we fucking love this song. and we knew it will open the album since the very beginning. please don't say it was a shitty decision.
we've been one year writing this album only while we were home, and you guys know that didn't happen very often. but the good part of having to write songs so separately in time is that we wrote about very different feelings we've lived. these songs try to represent the 12 faces of love we've experienced. it's funny 'cause we thought this album would be all party and cheerfulness but SURPRISE. it's not!!!!! haha. feelings are more balanced, like in life. so suddenly we had a more sober -or even sad- album than we expected. please don't think we've turned into depressive people or something, we've always been humans, it's just we're now showing it to you.
