The Hinds, a Lo-Fi, Garage Rock band from Madrid, were originally known as Deers. Turned out there was already another band named Deers - and they threatened legal action. So, the Spanish outfit dodged a bullet, or not, when they decided to become Hinds (the term for a 'female deer').
Carlotta Cosials and Ana García Perrote started working as a duo in '11 but took an extended break before picking it up again in '13. After posting a couple of songs ("Bamboo" and "Trippy Gum") on Bandcamp, the duo became a quartet.
While still Deers, the group won the "Make Noise Malasaña" festival contest which led a recording contract. A single or so later, Hinds signed with Lucky Number Music in the U.K. and Mom + Pop Music for the U.S.
A SXSW performance raised the group's U.S. profile with attention focused on the song "Garden."
