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 spend so many hours in the van, airports, stations and queues that we had to find things to do. mostly all of these times we have no wifi so we cannot work, so we just love to play games and these are the ones we like playing to:

this is a picture of the day we wrote Bamboo's lyrics. they came pretty easily, we were very very upset and very very drunk, so we knew exactly what we wanted to say and the way we wanted to say it...
(Madrid's HINDS are running things here on the site all day, so please welcome Ana, Carlotta, Ade, and Amber, and stay up on all of their posts here. The band's excellent debut LP Leave Me Alone is out now)
we always record our songs while writing them so we have all the process saved in videos at carlotta's place. we did it for the first ever single we put out:
