Hinds @ Union Transfer.

June 22, 2016


Last week, the four-piece garage rock/pop band Hinds took the stage at Union Transfer for their first show in Philly.

Currently on their Leave Me Alone tour, the Spanish group brought incredible energy and charisma to the stage, following performances by openers Joy Again and Sun Club.

Opening the show with their noisy demo “Trippy Gum,” Hinds then launched directly into a set full of songs from their debut album.

“This song is about a lovely plant called bamboo,” vocalist and founding member Carlotta Cosials said to the crowd before diving into their hit song “Bamboo,” a lo-fi single released in 2014 under their former name, Deers.

The playful quartet also played their other most well known songs “Garden” and “San Diego,” sipping beer in between songs, speaking to the crowd in a mixture of Spanish and English.

After leaving the stage for a brief break, the women came back on stage for an encore performance of “Davey Crockett,” a cover of British rock group Thee Headcoats.

Members of the opening act Sun Club jumped into the crowd and pulled people up on the stage, which was soon full of bodies dancing and jumping as the women ended their first, but hopefully not last show in Philly.
