Author Notes

"I've been riding solo. Doesn't feel okay. Make it go away."
Another song from Rolling Stone deemed a "Song You Need to Know", Hinds' Riding Solo's overall sound is somewhat reminiscent of M.I.A.'s, Paper Planes. But familiarity is where it stops as this one features four women singing in and out from each other (very complicated to chart!).
It seems every band has a song about being lonely on the road. This is Hinds' version. Hailing from Madrid, Spain, Hinds is an indie band with a very distinct sound. Sung mostly in accented English, they finally break towards the end and sing a few lines in Spanish.
Unfortunately, all instruments are highly repetitive, with guitars being the easiest to achieve FC; however, loving this sound and vocals drove me to its creation. I mean, we can all agree to have a little easy in rock band, can't we? =-)
Hope you enjoy!
