Spanish indie rock outfit Hinds have covered The Clash’s classic tune, ‘Spanish Bombs’. Check it out below.
Writing about the band’s decision to record their own rendition of the song, Hinds’ Carlotta Cosials said: “We’ve always loved doing covers. Maybe ’cause it’s the way we started, or maybe because there are so many good songs in the world already that we wish we had written! And we really enjoy hindsifying them heheh.”
She added: “The Clash were my mom’s forever favourite band and ade’s parents also, so it is always beautiful to connect generations through music. As spaniards, we don’t usually get shout outs in songs, like “new york” or “london”, so the clash writing a song about our civil war made us feel honoured. We recorded it the last day of studio, pretty much live, while recording our third album.”
The cover follows the release of the Hinds’ third album, The Prettiest Curse, which dropped back in June. Last month, the band shared the music video for single ‘Burn’.
