Hinds, in general, make indie pop a brighter place, so it's excellent news that they're back for 2018. A few weeks ago, they released "New For You," the first single from their upcoming record I Don't Run (out on 6 April), and now they've come through with a second instalment, "The Club," which is just as satisfying as ice cream in a cone on a hot day.In a statement, the band called "The Club" (which will be I Don't Run's opener) their "presentation card", because it's such a perfect encapsulation of their sound. As fuzzy vocals mesh with intricate, sunny guitars, Hinds' simple melodies bring to mind bright days and cool evenings in a consistent but never same-y way. If I Don't Run – co-produced by the band with Gordon Raphael, whose credits include The Strokes – continues in the vein we've heard so far, it seems like the band may well have perfected their luminous, nostalgic formula. Bottle it and sell it, I say. Listen to "The Club" below.Follow Noisey on Twitter.
