Beloved Madrid band Hinds released their glorious beast of a third album, The Prettiest Curse, last month on Mom + Pop to critical acclaim. Today the band shares more new music: a cover of The Clash’s “Spanish Bombs.”
Here’s the band’s inspiration behind covering the track below.
“we’ve always loved doing covers. maybe ’cause it’s the way we started, or maybe because there are so many good songs in the world already that we wish we had written! and we really enjoy hindsifying them heheh. the clash were my mom’s forevers favourite band and ade’s parents also, so it is always beautiful to connect generations through music.
“as spaniards, we don’t usually get shout outs in songs, like “new york” or “london”, so the clash writing a song about our civil war made us feel honoured. we recorded it the last day of studio, pretty much live, while recording our third album.”
