Spanish four-piece Hinds have announced their return to Australia for a run of fresh dates this May, after making their first appearance in the country in 2015.
Since they toured Australia’s east coast in February last year, Hinds (who were named Deers before that tour) have backed up their Garden EP with their debut album Leave Me Alone, which arrived earlier this month.
Hinds say they’re “excited as fuck” to return to Australia with some new tunes and old faves on their 2016 Aussie tour, which kicks off in Sydney on 5th May before moving through come cosy venues in Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth.
Speaking with Music Feeds ahead of the release of Leave Me Alone, bassist Ade Martín told of how working with Diego Garcia from The Parrots changed the band’s recording process on Leave Me Alone.
“We brought the producer — one of our best friends Diego from The Parrots, who also mixed the other two singles, and it was his first time recording an album and also producing one,” she said.
“So it was so, so new for all of us and overwhelming. Like recording was fine because we’d been playing the songs for ages but then the mixing – we didn’t know what mixing meant really. Like we didn’t know you could record something and make it sound like the most electronic stuff to the most garage thing.”
