Hometown: Madrid, Spain
When an artist is having fun, you can feel it as a listener. You can feel it listening to HINDS—the Spanish quartet having been basking in the well-deserved praise for their debut album Leave Me Alone, and they run a loose, goofy stage that makes for a perfect beer soundtrack.
HINDS are playing all over SXSW this year, and for good reason—Leave Me Alone is full of jangly guitar rock that sticks, and the band's collective charisma doesn't hurt either. They're a must-see at SXSW 2016.
Catch HINDS at our No Ceilings show on Friday at the Main II (Powered by Wix). More details here.
