Ground Control Touring Welcomes Hinds

Posted 11/15/2023

Each time they take the stage, Madrid-bred rock band Hinds, who formed in 2011, create a kind of wild magic, a feel-good free-for-all often complete with synchronized dancing and giddy crowd-surfing from the members themselves. While the band’s first two albums channelled the euphoric energy of their live show in their gorgeously punchy take on garage-rock, their last offering, The Prettiest Curse, released 2020 was described by Pitchfork as a “swing for the fences with a big, arena-friendly new sound” produced by Jenn Decilveo (The Wombats, Ben Platt and Anne-Marie).

Hinds first discovered their undeniable camaraderie back in 2014, three years after Cosials and Perrote first linked up and started covering songs together. Making their debut with the Bandcamp-released singles “Bamboo” and “Trippy Gum” in 2014, the duo quickly caught the attention of tastemaker press, and penned global record deals that kicked off their meteoric rise. Soon after, the band released their breakout debut album Leave Me Alone and their sophomore record I Don’t Run, which Hinds co-produced alongside Gordon Raphael (the producer behind The Strokes’ iconic first two albums), earning mass critical acclaim. Since then, the band have performed on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, won over crowds at festivals like Coachella and Glastonbury and played sold-out shows all over the world.
