LISTEN: Hinds Get Playful on New Single “San Diego”

Leave Me Alone is out January 8 on Mom + Pop.

Hinds have just finished up a pretty extensive North American tour, but with their debut LP on the way, there’s really no time for the Spanish quintet to rest. This morning, the buzzworthy garage group dropped “San Diego”—a new track from their upcoming album Leave Me Alone, and the followup to lead single “Garden.”

Where “Garden” featured a slower beat and crooning vocals, “San Diego” finds the women of Hinds in a more playful mood. Jangly guitars and sing-shouted lyrics bring the warmth of the SoCal sun out front past the track’s textured wall of fuzz. “We all have bad days. We mean bad nights,” Hinds says about “San Diego”‘s meaning. “One day, a friend told us ‘I don’t wanna fall asleep because I know what’s the dream about.’ This song is about staying awake. Just staying awake.”
