Hinds share ‘I Don’t Run’ album opener 

Madrid-based garage rock quartet Hinds have released the opening track from their forthcoming album ‘I Don’t Run’. It’s called ‘The Club’ and was revealed on the Annie Mac show on BBC Radio 1 as the ‘Hottest Record In The World’.

They chose to open the new LP with ‘The Club’ because “we couldn’t believe that we hadn’t written it before and that we hadn’t been listening to it for years. A friend said that it is more Hinds than Hinds themselves hahah.Hinds previously released ‘New For You’ from the album.

The group’s distinctive lo-fi guitars, played by singers Ana Perrote and Carlotta Cosials, buzz through ‘The Club’ until a wailing guitar solo and key change give emotional depth. The vocals are fuzzed up, as if everything wasn’t fuzzy enough already. It takes the band’s trademark DIY sound and boosts it by the power of x.

Hinds intend to make the new track their calling card. The song’s vocal melody, together with the bass by Ade Martin and understated drums from Amber Grimbergen, recall the dirty early sound of The Strokes. It’s no coincidence that Hinds co-produced the album with the US punk revivalists’ producer Gordon Raphael. 

Hinds’ acclaimed debut album in 2016, ‘Leave Me Alone’, hinted at darker concerns lurking beneath the happy-go-lucky surface and the group are now addressing these head on. “On this album the struggles are clear. We want to be brave,Perrote says.
