Hinds began their musical journey as a duo named Deers consisting of Ana Garcia Perrote and Carlotta Corsials in 2011. After receiving some recognition and releasing two tracks, “Bamboo” and “Tricky Gum,” they added two new members: Ade Martin and Amber Grimbergen.
In recent years, the group has expanded its influence past the realm of music. In 2017, Hinds designed a line of clothing for Urban Outfitters, and half of the proceeds were donated to Attendance Records, an Austin-based non-profit organization that encourages public school students to produce music and magazines. Earlier this year, the band released a limited-edition run of cruelty-free cosmetics in collaboration with 3INA.
Hinds’ sound has been described as “indie-rock-revivalism, making faux-naif surf licks and Mo Tucker drum beats seem new all over again” by Rolling Stone.
