Sophomore effort from formidable Spanish four-piece Hinds, following up 2016’s successful Leave Me Alone. Their playful garage-pop benefits this time from the input of The Strokes’ producer Gordon Raphael. I Don't Run is inspired by their life-altering last couple of years. Out on Lucky Number and available on indies-only clear vinyl.

I know I'm not the target audience for a band like Hinds but with all the notices I was seeing about 'I Don't Run' I was under the impression that they'd created something special here. However really it's just more tuneful, kinda consequential indie pop produced in that manner that sees distortion added to everything particularly the vocals so that after about three songs your ears are screaming.
So basically in order to be the new best thing you have to just write a whole load of songs that have been written before, play them badly/charmingly shambolically and screech over the top in voices only their mothers will be able to deal with. They have a habit of all 'singing' together which is kind of hard to take sometimes - what we have is a bunch of girls having great fun in the garage and referencing the Shaggs and the Marine Girls - all very cute and quirky and I'm sure a blast live but.....there's no flecks of genius here that pervades the very best kind of lo-fi pop.
Completely harmless but at the same time not very good at all.
