Hinds are back with their third LP, The Prettiest Curse. Based on the first track, the Madrid quartet appear to have pivoted to more a pop-leaning sound. The lead track, Good Times Bad Times, has a healthy dose of synths in it. Typically that’s my cue for heading to the exit but they work on this track. The Prettiest Curse will be release on 4/3 via the fine folks at Mom + Pop. Here’s some info from the PR team.

On this new record, Hinds take a quantum leap forward as a band and shrug off any remaining lo-fi accusations, finally harnessing the full extent of their pop prowess and unleashing songs which sound bigger, bolder, and more complex than anything they have done before, while still remaining true to their girl-gang, garage rock roots. “We have this incredible job, but it’s really transformed the way we live,” says Carlotta Cosials, explaining the album title. “We know we’re not going to stop, so we’ve decided to embrace it—to see this curse as something pretty.” Featuring songs performed in Hinds’ native tongue for the first time, The Prettiest Curse was produced by Jenn Decliveo and is positively bursting with life, finding Hinds at their very best yet.
