Hinds release new cover of The Clash song ‘Spanish Bombs’
Spanish indie-pop group Hinds have released their own unique take on a classic by The Clash and have covered ‘Spanish Bombs’.
The song, which was originally released by Joe Strummer and the iconic punks as part of the band’s 1979 album London Calling, famously includes the lyric ‘Yo t’quierro y finito, yo te querda, oh ma côrazon’ which will, of course, ring true with Hinds.
“We’ve always loved doing covers,” band member band’s Carlotta Cosials explained. “Maybe ’cause it’s the way we started, or maybe because there are so many good songs in the world already that we wish we had written! And we really enjoy hindsifying them.”
Cosials added: “The Clash were my mom’s forever favourite band and ade’s parents also, so it is always beautiful to connect generations through music.
“As Spaniards, we don’t usually get shout outs in songs, like ‘New York’ or ‘London’, so the clash writing a song about our civil war made us feel honoured. We recorded it the last day of studio, pretty much live, while recording our third album.”
