Hinds tackle loneliness on the road with new single ‘Riding Solo’

It's the Spanish group's first new music of 2019

Hinds have shared new single ‘Riding Solo’ along with its colourful official video – stream below.

The song marks the Madrid outfit’s first new material since their second album ‘I Don’t Run‘, which arrived last year.

Released via Mom + Pop Records, the track reflects Hinds experiencing individual loneliness whilst out on the road. “Feeling lonely is one of the most common human feelings, right?” they explained.


“Your whole life [as a musician] is constantly moving, and the only thing that remains is yourself. And dealing with yourself.”

Hinds continued: “Oh gosh, we all know how boring and angering that can be. ‘Riding Solo’ is about this, about us perpetually on the move, being everywhere and nowhere at the same time, surrounded by strangers most time of the day, being nine hours time difference from our people and what we call home, living and dying por y para la música.”

In the vibrant official video, directed by Keane Pearce Shaw, the band pull guitarist and vocalist Carlotta Cosials across a desert location. Later, they lounge on rubber rings before making tracks in a red classic car.

‘Riding Solo’ was recorded in New York City with Grammy-nominated producer Jenn Decilveo. She has previously worked with the likes of Bat For Lashes and Anne-Marie.


Though it appears that Hinds’ third album is imminent, no further details have yet been shared. Next summer will see the group play Bilbao BBK Live Festival, with further festival dates also expected.

In a four-star review of their last full-length ‘I Don’t Run’, NME said that Hinds’ “cheery yet punk-as-fuck attitude is studded through their rattling second LP.”
