Lo-fi Spanish indie band Hinds have been on and off the road since releasing a deluxe edition of their debut full-length, Leave Me Alone, last October. That means that the last thing the Madrid-based four-piece released was a cover of Los Nastys’It was Hinds‘ first Spanish-language song. Now, ten months on, they’ve returned with another cover. This time it’s a version of Kevin Ayers’s 1973 song “Caribbean Moon.” The original was heavy on woodwind, and Ayers affected a cringey Caribbean accent through the whole thing, Hinds switching the flutes into a surf-rock guitar lick with a background whistle. The vocals trade off between Carlotta Cosials’s intentional absurdity and Ana García Perrote’s straight(ish) delivery.

Original song by Kevin Ayers (1973) we fell in love with this song the first time paco loco showed it to us in the studio (while recording our second album!!), we didn’t think we needed stronger reasons to do a cover of it 🙂
