We may only be halfway through 2015 but the Madrid quartet of Ana Perrote, Carlotta Cosials, Ade Martin and Amber Grimbergen – aka Hinds – are already well on their way to cementing their position as one of the breakthrough bands of the year. Their debut Sangria-fueled release, Demo, featuring the ramshackle Ronettes swing of Bamboo and spiky sweet psychedelia of Trippy Gum won them hordes of rabid fans, and their sold out 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 is our pleasure to announce that Hinds have officially signed Mom + Pop Music. To celebrate news of the signing, the band has unveiled 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:
"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 :)"
