Hinds released their debut album, Leave Me Alone, at the very beginning of the year, and today they’re releasing a deluxe edition of it featuring some covers, B-sides, rarities, and demos. One of those tracks is a cover of a song by their friends and fellow Madrid-based band Los Nastys called “Holograma,” and it’s the band’s first Spanish-language release. Here’s a message from the band:
first of all, you’re gonna notice this song is in spanish (OMG!)
second of all, you have to know we didn’t write it (OMFG!!!)
so with these things you would probably wonder what made us think it’s a good idea to record this song and release it??
are hinds going crazy and they don’t like their own songs already?!
the thing is this song is from Los Nastys,
the thing is that covering this song was the beginning of this band (or at least one of them, ’cause our beginnings are v confusing), it was the first thing we played after a break of almost 2 years..
and covering songs from bands you love used to be a great tradition that people dont do that much anymore.
but the real thing is that we think Los Nastys are the best band in the world. since ever and forever.
and that all we have to say about this.
The Leave Me Alone deluxe edition is out now. You can order it here.
