Our favorite madrileñas are back state-side. Hinds, the talented and whacky foursome of Carlotta Cosials (vocals, guitar), Ana Perrote (vocals, guitar), Ade Martin (bass) and Amber Grimbergen (drums) played Warsaw in Brooklyn on Friday night.
The Brooklyn-based Navy Gangs kicked off the night. They played the hard-hitting “Special Glands” and easy-going “Mondays” off of their recently released, self-titled EP. Even though their lead singer had a broken arm, the band still brought a lively set (and at times some one-handed guitar playing).
Cold Fronts followed Navy Gangs with vibrance and energy. Lead singer and guitarist, Craig Almquist, formed the band in 2010 while at school in Philadelphia. After a rotating cast of bandmates, Cold Fronts seems to have found its stride. When you watch them perform you get lost in the music as the band terrorizes the stage, while still acting nonchalant. The group played songs off their album Forever Whatever and set the stage for Hinds with their mad guitar riffs and constant head-banging.
The four-piece, garage rock group closed the night. Hinds is purposely unpolished. They are known for playing with reckless abandon, lavish facial expressions and intermittent bows throughout the show. They did not disappoint as Perrote anchored the stage and fed into and off the other members’ energy. The rowdy crowd matched their intensity as they moshed and dove off the stage into other viewers. At the close, fans stormed the stage as Perrote and Cosials jammed out while crowd surfing.
