Madrid garage rockers Hinds closed out the SXSW Radio Day Stage showcase with a spirited and fun set of songs from the band's debut album, Leave Me Alone. The all-women four-piece captures the punky spirit of The Runaways and the pop smarts of The Bangles. Carlotta Cosials and Ana Perrote lead the band with a magnetic charm that's enhanced by their Spanish accents and irresistible smiles. If Tiger Beat had a special indie-rock edition of its magazine, these young women would be on the cover.

Hinds' Radio Day Stage performance was a highlight of the Austin festival. Watch videos of "Garden" and "Easy" below to see why.
