“Pop is about perfection. We are the opposite.” This headline once appeared above an interview with Hinds, and years later, it still seems to be the mission statement of this charismatic Spanish band. Carlotta Cosials and Ana García Perrote met through a friend’s band at the time and must’ve figured: we can do this way better. Thus in 2011 they plugged in the guitars themselves. And you know what? The hype around Hinds hasn’t ceased the moment the first string of songs appeared on Bandcamp. Hinds played Best Kept Secret in 2015 and will do so again, now with their well-received debut album Leave Me Alone under their belt.
