Hinds is a Spanish indie rock band from Madrid, formed in 2011, consisting of Carlotta Cosials (vocals, guitar), Ana Perrote (vocals, guitar), Ade Martin (bass, backing vocals) and Amber Grimbergen (drums).[2] The original name of the band was Deers, but they were forced to change it at the end of 2014, due to the threat of legal action from a similarly named band.[3] The group chose "Hinds" (female deer) as the new name of the band and announced officially the name change on 7 January 2015.[4] They have released one album, one compilation LP and four singles.

Hinds started in 2011 as a duo called Deers, consisting of Carlotta Cosials and Ana García Perrote.[5] After a break of a year and a half, the duo reformed in 2013. In March 2014, still as a duo, they recorded the tracks "Bamboo" and "Trippy Gum" and released both songs in Bandcamp as "Demo".[6] The single was praised by music magazines such as NME[7] and by Paul Lester of The Guardian who chose Deers as "new band of the week" in September 2014,[8] and by major musicians, such as Patrick Carney,[5] The Pastels,[9] and Bobby Gillespie.[10] After releasing "Demo" the duo became a four piece, with close friend and former guitar player and singer Ade Martín on bass and the Netherlands-born Amber Grimbergen on drums.[1] In May 2014, Deers won the "Make Noise Malasaña" festival contest[11] and were awarded with recording their second single "Barn" in Converse Rubber Tracks in Berlin. In June 2014 Deers played for the first time in London and "Demo" was released on July on vinyl by the record labels Lucky Number Music (UK) and Mom + Pop Music (USA).[12] During the rest of the year they also played in Germany and France, amongst other countries, and supported The Libertines,[13] The Vaccines[14] and Black Lips.[15] They have received very positive reviews in Pitchfork,[16] Pigeons and Planes,[17] Gorilla vs. Bear,[18] The Irish Times,[19] Paste,[1] and DIY.[20][21] On 3 November 2014, they released the single "Barn" with the tracks "Castigadas en el granero" ("Punished in the Barn") and "Between Cans". Once again it was released by Lucky Number[22] and was well received by the press.[8][16][21]

In 2015, the band embarked on their first world tour, having already played Thailand and Australia in February and the United States in March,[23] and played many major festivals, including Festival Internacional de Benicàssim, South by Southwest (where they played 16 concerts in just 4 days),[2][24] Burgerama, Best Kept Secret and Dot to Dot Festival. On 13 April they began recording their debut album, with Paco Loco (es) and Diego García (from The Parrots) as producer and engineer.[23] The band also released a split single in April with The Parrots for Record Store Day, featuring the track “Davey Crockett (Gabba Hey!)", a cover from Thee Headcoatees,[25] which is wrongly stated as a cover from Thee Headcoats, produced by Árni Árnason from The Vaccines.[26] In August 2016, Very Best of Hinds so Far was released on the Mom & Pop Music label. The limited to 2,500 copies 10" LP featured six songs (the band's singles up until that point and one live song).

The band announced at the end of April 2015 that they had completed the recording of the debut album. In September 2015 it was announced that the band's debut album Leave Me Alone would be released on 8 January 2016 on the label Lucky Number. The album features 12 tracks, including the brand new single "Garden", previous singles such as "Bamboo", "Castigadas en el granero" and "Chili Town", and several new tracks.[27] The album debuted at number 47 on the UK Albums Chart and charted on the Oricon Weekly albums chart in Japan.[28] A deluxe version of the album was released in September 2016 and featured previously released B sides, 2 new cover songs and the very first take demos of tracks from the original album. An animated music video for "Bamboo" was released to promote the deluxe edition of the album.[29] In February 2017 the band designed an exclusive clothing line through Urban Outfitters that also included a exclusive limited edition 7" of their song "Holograma" with 50% of the proceeds of sales going to Attendance Records, an Austin-based non-profit providing public schools students with a platform to create, write and produce their very own albums and magazines.[30][31] The band announced on their Twitter page that they are working on a new album for 2017. Production began in March 2017.[32][33]

Musical style

Overall, Hinds are considered a garage rock, garage pop and lo-fi band, and have been compared to a blend of rock bands such as Velvet Underground, The Pastels, and C86-like bands, contemporary garage rock and 1960s groups with a poppier sound,[8][10][34] although they have mentioned Black Lips, Ty Segall, The Parrots, The Strokes, The Vaccines, and Mac DeMarco as their main influences.[8][15][35]
