Hinds offer fans another glimpse into their gloriously raucous, sweetly playful world, in the form of a double music video/ short film for their cover of “Davey Crockett” and The Parrots’ cover of “All My Loving”, which was released earlier this year for Record Store Day as a split 7 inch single.
Directed by CANADA, the video is a potent shot of youthful effervescence, with an enthusiasm that is as intoxicating as it is deeply infectious.
Hinds and The Parrots spoke to Pitchfork about the making of the video: “we are 7 dudes born and raised in madrid and we’ve been friends since ever; we’ve lived from our puberty years to currently issues like not having money to pay the rent or recoding our firsts albums. we did a split 7” vinyl with two covers of songs we both usually end our gigs with because we love them. so suddenly the idea of shooting a movie with CANADA (our music-videos-educator) was kind of a dream. plus, this one is the first not-home-made-music-video for both bands. Felt great. But keep the budget low”.
