Stream Hinds’ ‘Leave Me Alone’ before you buy it

Garage-rock band Hinds, hailing from Madrid, today released one of the most hotly anticipated albums (so far) of 2016 — Leave Me Alone.

It’s streaming now on NPR, for your listening pleasure. FYI: NPR points out that hind is another word for a female red deer.

Their sound is a bit like ’60s harmony Britpop or laid-back surf-pop, which then turns right around and slaps you with some harsh punk reality.

In their press release, the band explained how they expected a perhaps sunnier album and were rather taken aback when that’s not what came out.

“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.”

Hinds are on the lo-fi side but with amped-up passion, authenticity and sheer confidence. Leave Me Alone, their full-length debut, contains demos and a cover of The Headcoats’ “Davey Crockett” for Record Store Day. Hinds have already released the singles “Garden” and “San Diego.”
