If you follow Hinds on any social media platform, it isn’t hard to figure out the four ladies from Madrid are squeezing every ounce out of the rock n roll lifestyle. They’re young, having fun and pretty much always have a smile on their faces. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t worried about a sophomore slump. Maybe they lost sight of the main item on their plate, making great music.

My worries were for naught. In fact, it is their never-ending quest of a good time that makes their music so damn enjoyable. But along with all those good times, the ladies have also matured. The opening two tracks, The Club and Soberland deal with dark reality that the nights all end eventually and having the clarity to see how things are really shaking out. The lead single, New For You, is so damn enjoyable; about wanting to reinvent yourself for someone. I Feel Cold But I Feel More feels like a tune you’d listen to on the last day of summer, as the sun sets and you have to head back to college.

I Don’t Run is a nice progression for the band. They’ve matured, yet managed to hold on to the who gives a fuck attitude that made them so endearing. And lest I forget, they are one of the most enjoyable bands you’ll see live.
