The Hinds Brothers Band are a folk rock, alt country, indie group fronted by singer/songwriter brothers Aden & Wren Hinds. Born and raised on the quiet east coast of South Africa, the music of The Hinds Brothers emblemizes the tranquil beauty of these surrounds – but much more than that, they bring to the art of melody and lyric music written, sung, and played from the heart for the heart.
Individually their voices are very different yet meld seamlessly into harmonic perfection. Similarly their songwriting displays that merging compatibility that produces songs of unforgettable melody line and lyrical beauty. These qualities, perfectly complimented by voices of great originality and beauty, make live performances by these young musicians an intimate, dynamic and unforgettable experience. They have evolved a style uniquely and undeniably their own, taking inspiration from a wide range of influences including the Beatles and Syd Kitchen.
The Durban based duo's debut album 'Ocean of Milk' was independently released on 27 August 2013. Produced by the brothers themselves, the album was recorded in no less than 7 studios in Durban, Johannesburg, Cape Town and Pretoria, and features 19 of South Africa's finest musicians. The record was mixed by SAMA award winning producer Dan Roberts and mastered in New York by Alan Douches (Sufjan Stevens, Roky Erikson).
Great music always resonates with the trilogy of mind, heart and spirit and in this respect the creative work of the Hinds Brothers is an unqualified success, for their music will live long in the minds, hearts and spirits of all who are fortunate enough to experience their art.
