“British Mind” Hinds

Hinds recently released a video for their new single “British Mind”, aptly named as they set their sights on a 17 date UK tour which will be the band’s longest to-date. The track is off the quartet’s release I Don’t Run, now out via Lucky Number.

Hinds on “British Mind”:

“British Mind is a song that has been born, fed, recorded, mixed, and mastered during this summer in between festivals. The title and its phrase comes from an idea that has been chasing me every time the sun is used as a metaphor of happiness in so so many songs made by English people. The sun is “that something” you have to look for, to wait for, to trust that it’ll come back someday, and will take care of you again. So, as Spaniards, a sunny day for us is simply a must. We just count on it. It’s gonna happen. For sure. Actually, the song was written on hot, sunny days. Could you tell? Anyways, it is still not the beginning of a third album, it is more like an epilogue for I Don’t Run.”

I Don’t Run was released on April 6 via Lucky Number and was Co-produced by Hinds and Gordon Raphael (The Strokes, Regina Spektor), and engineered by Shawn Everett (Alabama Shakes, The War On Drugs, John Legend).

Hinds on their Party Planet tour

“Party Planet is something we’ve been wanting to do even before having the band. We think that festivals are one of the best inventions in this world, and that friends meeting with the reason of music to have fun is awesome. so, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN. PARTY PLANET. WE CREATED A FESTIVAL. ALL DAYER. BEST DAY OF YOUR LIFE. AND MINE TOO. HINDS ARE HEADLINING. THIS IS THE BEGINNING OF A NEW ERA. FORGET EVERYTHING YOU LEARNT. #PARTYPLANET IS #HINDSASFUCK.”
