Catalogue No.: HVN568
Release Date: 2nd October 2020
‘UNITED GIRLS ROCK'N'ROLL CLUB’ is a collaborative single from Hinds and CHAI.
“‘UNITED GIRLS ROCK’N’ROLL CLUB’ is a song that screams GIRL POWER!” the bands say. “You might be from different countries, different languages, but at the end of the day, the music speaks for itself. You can hear it, you can feel it! It's that type of song! Take a listen!”
Though they may live a world apart, Tokyo-based CHAI and Madrid-bred Hinds are cut from the same rebellious cloth. Both acts are celebrated for their euphoric live shows, giddy feel-good free-for-alls often complete with synchronized dancing and sing-a-longs. That frenetic energy is palatable on their albums, which boldly state the case for female empowerment and creativity. Whether challenging out outdated beauty standards or stagediving with reckless abandon, CHAI and Hinds are here to make you get up and dance in celebration of life and friendship.
