Hinds, everybody’s favourite Spanish indie pop group, have returned with their first new music in over 12 months with the release of ‘Riding Solo’.
The Madrid-born band, who released their sophomore album, I Don’t Run, in October last year, have now teamed up with Mom + Pop Records for the newest release.
According to a statement via the band, the new material was created after “a spell of loneliness” and, while the elements of lo-fi garage rock still exist, ‘Riding Solo’ has been ramped up in the production stakes and appears to be taking the band in a slightly different direction.
“Your whole life [as a musician] is constantly moving and the only thing that remains is yourself. and dealing with yourself,” the band said in a press release. “Oh gosh, we all know how boring and angering that can be. ‘Riding Solo’ is about this, about us perpetually on the move, being everywhere and nowhere at the same time, surrounded by strangers most time of the day, being nine hours time difference from our people and what we call home, living and dying por y para la música.”
