Live: Hinds @ Academy 2, Manchester.

Saturday evening at the Academy 2 in Manchester was an evening of two halves: the support acts and the headliner. It isn’t often, but on occasions, the support acts outshine the headliners, and Saturday night was one of those occasions. Setting aside the greater depth of repertoire of Hinds, the line-up could very easily have been reversed. London-based lo-fi disco quintet SWEAT hit the stage first and quickly won over the half-full venue with their spellbinding and seductive sound and stage presence.

And being in bed...

Live Review: Hinds @ KOKO Camden

Live: Hinds @ KOKO Camden They can’t sing, can barely play, and their debut album Leave Me Alone sounds like it was recorded down a phone line. And yet, Madrid based all female four-piece Hinds, are currently darlings of the mainstream music press and were nominated in the ‘Best New Artist’ category in the 2016 NME Awards. Still, if questionable technical merit and lo-fi albums were a barrier to entry, The Sex Pistols and their ilk couldn’t have given the music industry a much needed kick up the arse in the late 70s and I think we’re all in...
