The Club: Play Fab New Video From Hinds Here

It's fitting that the video for the new single from Hinds, "The Club", echoes that "Ticket To Ride" sequence in Help! as, frankly, this new tune from the Spanish four-some is every bit as fun as those early numbers from that four-piece from Liverpool. Another taster from the band's upcoming album, I Don't Run, out everywhere on April 6, the cut is a blast, full of singalong appeal and bright, bubbly charm.

"The Club" is the second song to drop from the upcoming April 6 release and it's a bit rockier than the earlier "New For You" but every bit as infectious and catchy as that first 2018 single from the band. Hinds -- Ana Perrote (vocals, guitar), Ade Martin (bass, backing vocals), Amber Grimbergen (drums), and Carlotta Cosials (vocals, guitar) -- are here prepping the follow-up to their full-length debut album, 2016's Leave Me Alone. And if expectations are necessarily high for I Don't Run, I think it's safe to assume that these 4 players will find a way to surprise listeners in positive ways, and leave long-time fans with a big smile on their faces.

Some 4 years ago, guys like me were raving about this band (then called Deers), and I'm happy to be still raving as, frankly, Hinds make music that's such a pleasure to listen to, that one wonders why so much of the rest of modern indie-pop has to be so dour and joyless.

I know: The world's going to hell, but people can still be awesome, and pop music can still be a great thing, so dig this new one from Hinds!
