“Hinds Usher in Summer With ‘The Prettiest Curse,’ Their Best Album Yet”

I first heard Hinds back in 2018, when I Don’t Run dropped, and immediately I was hooked; the record has just the right amount of distorted, coarse-ground rock and “I don’t care” spirit, sans any sort of pretense. The women comprising this quartet, they’re just themselves. They can’t be anything else. I learned as much when I backtracked to their 2016 debut, Leave Me Alone.

That carries through on their new album, The Prettiest Curse, delayed by COVID-19 but now available for your listening pleasure. You might disagree with me. You might think I Don’t Run is better. But boy, I don’t know, this is such a great example of how rock ‘n roll bands can expand their sound without changing their sound, and I really, really dig it.
