Hinds Release Godard Inspired Clip for “Garden”

The fresh and jangly pop sounds of Madrid quartet Hinds are so addictive, you might as well just forget about listening to much else this summer. Formed in 2011, they used to be known as Deers, but changed their name earlier this year when a similarly named group threatened legal action. In our opinion, with a sound like that, they can call themselves whatever they like.

The all-female group have just released a clip for single Garden, their first offering under the new name, and the first release from upcoming album Leave Me Alone (due out in early 2016.) Directed by Pedro Martin-Calero, the clip has a distinctive Tropicalia feel, and takes inspiration from the 1965 Jean Luc Godard film Le Fou. The story traces a couple trying to lose themselves in an adventure to nowhere, with stunningly shot and framed scenes. In a recent release, the band said of the clip:

“Garden is the first track of our album. It is our favourite song and we say it proudly. This is the first time we got to choose the director of a music video ourselves, so it was an honour when Pedro Martin-Calero said yes. He is a genius and we did everything he wanted – except for the chicken, which was a thing we begged for.”

Featuring a fun vintage wardrobe, and flowers being snorted like cocaine, it is a little bit of cinematic loveliness.

If you are loving it as much as we are you can get in super early and pre-order the album due out January 8 here.
