Finally it was time to see Spain’s hottest music export perform at Brighton’s Concorde 2.

Hinds are out of Madrid and are Carlotta Cosials (vocals, guitar), Ana Perrote (vocals, guitar), Ade Martin (bass, backing vocals) and Dutch born Amber Grimbergen (drums) and they are fun fun fun!

Don’t believe me, then watch the fun video for their new anthem ‘New For You’ HERE.

‘I Don’t Run’ the new album by Hinds

This track is from their newly released second album ‘I Don’t Run’ which was unleashed to their adoring fans on 6th April. It arrived two years after their terrific debut album ‘Leave Me Alone’.

The ladies, who formed back in 2011 as a duo, are on a 37+ date UK, Europe and USA album plugging tour and thankfully Brighton was again on their list. As singer Carlotta told the Concorde 2 crowd tonight, that they love performing in Brighton and its general vibe and likened London to Barcelona and Brighton to Madrid (where they come from). Obviously something to do with the crowds response to their uplifting indie-rock tunes. Brighton was only one of five UK gigs.

Each time they play here, they need to book a bigger venue. First it was The Joker pub at Preston Circus (just when they were changing the band name from Deers to Hinds) and then they came back and played Patterns and now tonight they are gigging right next door to the beach.

Personally, I discovered the girls back in 2014 when they were originally called Deers and had only upload four trax on Bandcamp. To me they ARE the best band ever to come out of Spain – full stop!

So tonight’s 16 track set was always going to be a real treat for me. It is interesting to note that they are getting more polished with their stage presence whilst still maintaining the lovable DIY ethos.

Singer Carlotta addressed the lucky punters the most as usual and Ana spoke her piece too and unusually Ade was quite talkative this evening as well. Might have been something to do with her parents specially coming to the gig to watch their boiler suited daughter in action.

Not surprisingly the gig kicked off with the new albums opener ‘The Club’, which set the tone for the night. I particularly noted that tonight’s crowd (who were of varying ages) were singing along to the tunes including the songs from the latest release. I hadn’t recalled this happened at my previous Hinds gigs and so these chicas are on the way up!

They were having fun tonight jumping around the stage and amazingly in Carlotta’s case, she even full crowd surfed! The fans couldn’t believe it. There were so many smiley faces around me, you could tell that they were all being swept along with the occasion.

My choice trax from the night would be the early releases of ‘Castigadas En El Granero’ and ‘Bamboo’, but even they were eclipsed by ‘New For You’ and the Ramones-esque chant of ‘Davey Crockett’ (gabba-gabba-hey), for which the band invited their tour manager and crew on stage to play their guitars and bass whilst the girls solely took to mic duties.
