Spanish indie-rock band Hinds has just released a scrappy, yet oddly charming new music video for their song “Bamboo.”
In the video, animated and directed by Laurina Paperina, intentionally unprofessionally drawn cartoon versions of the four band members destroy a monster with “girl power,” walk over rainbows and mutilate animals, dehorning a unicorn and cutting the tail off a rat. It serves as an eerily accurate visual representation of the bands’ sound, which has an odd mixture of unfiltered joyousness and unsettling DIY aesthetic.
Hinds also announced that they’ll be releasing a deluxe version of their record Leave Me Alone on Oct. 28. The deluxe edition will only be available on vinyl, and include various demos and remixes from the band’s debut LP. Well, according to the band, not really “demos”; according to the band in a press release:
“they are not demos. but we couldn’t find the correct way to call them. they NEVER were thought to be shown to the world.
ALL OF THE DEMOS we’ve chose happened when the song was just born, so we are making up English (?) words, or hardly reading the notebook while trying to remember the chords and the structure.
but mysteriously, even thou all this shit, we love them. ‘cause they take us exactly to the moment we wrote them. like a time machine. and we seriously hope this magic happens to you too and brings you to drink sangria at 1am sitting on a carpet with us.”
