Yawners will perform at SXSW 2019.

The punchy Spanish rock band Yawners cites Weezer’s early records as an influence, and damned if Just Calm Down doesn’t conjure that exact reference point: The new album marries a slacker’s drawl to a candied wall of guitars that’d fit cozily into any college-rock and power-pop era of the last 40 years. Singer-songwriter Elena Nieto stands astride Yawners’ bright, brooding anthems with a star’s charisma and the dexterity of a guitar hero. “Big riffs, big feelings, big tunes. Yawners high energy indie rock feels like a crush.”

“Please, Please, Please” appears on Yawners debut LP “Just Calm Down”, to be released by La Castanya released on March 22nd, 2019.

A message from Hinds about Leave Me Alone Deluxe:

“hi! we are Ade, Amber, Ana and Carlotta and this is HINDS. Our first ever album is called Leave Me Alone but this is the deluxe edition. So you can listen to songs you might not know we had and demos recorded with a cellphone. about the demos, first of all, they are not demos. but we couldn’t find the correct way to call them. they never were thought to be shown to the world. while we are writing we record ourselves with our cellphones so we can listen to it again on the bus or wherever and we think new ideas and how to make the song better.

ALL OF THE DEMOS we’ve chose happened when the song was just born, so we are making up English (?) words, or hardly reading the notebook while trying to remember the chords and the structure.

but mysteriously, even thou all this shit, we love them. ’cause they take us exactly to the moment we wrote them. like a time machine. and we seriously hope this magic happens to you too and brings you to drink sangria at 1am sitting on a carpet with us”.

Mourn writes fast, loud, noisy post-punk. They use this format to tap into teenage frustration and anger about the vapid nature of their peers, intellectual vacancy of world leaders, and racism/nationalism in their home country of Spain and abroad. Mourn spent the last few years playing in their own region but made their first trip to the US this year and we’re confident there’s more to come from this young, exciting band.

Hinds at Fever- Shot by Mitch Ikeda

With their first ever album by the Spanish all girl band HINDS called “Leave Me Alone”, now are releasing a Super Magic Deluxe Edition. What is it gonna have ? Look, we don’t wanna spoil the party but… it will be full of amazing songs you’ve never heard, demos we probably shouldn’t be sharing and much more.

Why we shouldn’t be sharing those demos..? the thing is that – they’re not properly demos hahah. but we couldn’t find the correct way to call them. They never were thought to be shown to the world. while we are writing, we always record ourselves with our cellphones so we can listen to it again on the bus or wherever, and we think new ideas an how to make the song better and stuff.

hinds-leave-me-alone

Hinds, four young women from Spain writing music that is both sunny, catchy, but most of all startlingly authentic feeling.  In my opinion authenticity is at a premium in this year of our lord, and any group that can effortlessly evoke something like real, actual life should be worth their weight in gold.  If anything, the lesson to be learned from Hinds is that writing a good song is something very rare, but you know it when you hear it.  How simple it might be hardly enters the equation.

The band are also releasing an animated video with our song “Bamboo”!! do you like cartoons? ’cause you’re gonna love this toon version of Hinds haha.
