Crosstown Concerts presents...

Beloved Spanish indie rockers Hinds—a.k.a Carlotta Cosials and Ana Perrote, recently announced their utterly triumphant fourth, VIVA HINDS, out September 6th via Lucky Number. Today, following the release of “Coffee” and “Boom Boom Back” featuring Beck, the band share a brand new single. Entitled “En Forma,” the track is the band’s first release to be sung entirely in Spanish. With rapid-fire delivery, the duo mirror the head-spinning anxiety of the onset of a panic attack on this song.

On the new single, Carlotta shares “My boyfriend broke up with me and I turned 30 years old in the same week. This was the first song I could write after months of feeling absolutely devastated, immobile and pathetic. I just wanted to get better but I just couldn't, I couldn't cope with this eternal race of being happier and better and cleaner and healthier.” Ana adds, “When I talk with my girlfriends, in the same afternoon we can chat about wars, philosophy, love and clothes. I tried to reflect on this song the chaos and huge spectrum of what it’s like to be a young woman these days. How overwhelming it can be to juggle the news, politics, our bodies, relationships and laundry.” Listen/Stream “En Forma” HERE & watch their self-directed music video HERE.

EMBED

Shortly after the band made their debut ten years ago, they hit what felt like an insurmountable obstacle – they had to change their name from Deers to Hinds for legal reasons. But, as their fans began to greet them at shows by cheering “¡VIVA HINDS!”, the band soon realized that what initially felt like an ending was actually just the beginning. Fast forward to 2023, and VIVA HINDS was written by the band’s co-founders, co-vocalists, co-guitarists and co-songwriters Carlotta Cosials and Ana Perrote after a series of endings. They hit a creative rut after releasing their 2020 album The Prettiest Curse, and their bassist and drummer devastatingly decided to leave the band. They also split with their management team, lost touring revenue due to lockdowns, and were without a label for the first time. But when Perrote and Cosials got together to write again it became clear that their connection, one so special that they call themselves “millionaires in friendship,” would be all they needed to get them through. VIVA HINDS – the most accomplished, sonically adventurous, honest and celebratory record of Hinds’ career – is only the beginning.

VIVA HINDS will be released on September 6th via Lucky Number. Recorded in rural France, the album was produced by Pete Robertson (Beabadoobee), engineered by the GRAMMY-nominated Tom Roach, mixed by GRAMMY-winning engineer Caesar Edmunds (The Killers, Wet Leg), and includes a collaboration with Fontaines D.C.’s Grian Chatten, in addition to Beck.

The energy at a Hinds show is always palpable, and they kicked off 2024 playing several UK shows for Independent Venue Week, followed by SXSW in March, alongside two sold-out shows at Baby’s All Right in New York. Most recently their sold out tour saw them play electrifying shows in London, Brighton, Paris, Munich, Berlin and more. Hinds will return to the UK in September, playing a London headline show at Lafayette on the 13th, before returning in early 2025 for a full EU / UK tour, announced today and on-sale Wednesday 19th June 10am BST.
