Their debut Sangria fuelled release, “Demo”, featuring the ramshackle Ronettes swing of “Bamboo” and spiky sweet psychedelia of “Trippy Gum” won them hordes of rabid fans, and their live shows have already made converts out of anyone lucky enough to catch them, bewitching audiences with their mixture of manic energy, infectious enthusiasm and addictive melodies. Now, it can be announced that Hinds have officially signed to independent label Lucky Number Music and, not only that, they will be playing the label’s 10th anniversary party this Thursday at Village Underground in Shoreditch.
To celebrate news of this signing, the band are also unveiling a brand new track, “Chili Town”, another perfectly imperfect slice of off-kilter pop; Black Lips by way of Phil Spector. In the band’s own words:
From HINDS: Chili town was born in a friday afternoon. while drinking sangria we realized that if our songs were battles, we’ll always end up being the injured soldier. Then we were like “fuck it dude, why are we always the weak one in our lyrics??? what’s wrong with us???” So yeaaaaahhh we made it! we wrote a winner song! …right?
Chili was written exactly in the same place and way we wrote our first song, AND is gonna be released exactly with the same team that took care of it: lucky number music in Europe and mom and pop in the US. You can’t imagine how proud and excited we feel 🙂
Hinds will also be playing Secret Garden Party in Cambridgeshire and Deer Shed Festival in Yorkshire this weekend.
