Carlotta Cosials and Ana García Perrote started writing songs under the name Deers in 2011 (it's some Spanish joke about ex-boyfriends that doesn't translate easily into English), but Montreal indie band the Dears lawyered up and forced them to change their name to Hinds (another deer gag). Along the way, they filled out their surf-rock/garage-gaze lineup into an all-woman party foursome. Interviews with them are as abysmal as you would expect for any all-female group. They get questions about their dating histories. How did they get their drummer? She was a fan of their band. Duh! Hinds has a relentlessly positive, shake-it-off attitude, and their shows are hella fun and psych. Reminiscent of a further out Black Lips or Thee Oh Sees, Hinds really kills it with their complex vocal harmonies. Take your shoes off. This is one of those sand parties.
