No Regrets In Old English (2015)

"From Brooklyn, New York, Hints’ long awaited debut EP is everything you’d expect and want from these talented new-wavers. No Regrets in Old English truly sounds like something lost from the mid-’80s, with rhythmic and hypnotic instrumentals that any fan of The Church or The Smiths could appreciate, and vocals that can rival Morrissey’s. Picking only one song to highlight is tough because No Regrets in Old English sounds like a greatest hits album. All of the tracks are that bit of comforting darkness you’d welcome with open arms... Hints are coming out strong with their first EP—No Regrets in Old English is a modern new wave masterpiece."

Vol. III (2013)

Hints’ Vol. III sees the band slowing the tempo a bit but dialing up the atmosphere and expanding the sonic landscape. The cycling buildup of ‘Endless Well’ sets a brightly-lit chorus against the shadowy verses, and second track ‘Forced To Ask’ plays like a teen prom anthem for those who would never go.

 

Vol. II (2013)

Where Vol I. traced the edges of the Hints sound, Vol. II solidifies the core. Lead track ‘Cher Ami’ – a supercharged, twin-guitar paean to a lost friend – finds its counterpart in the bass and jangle workout of ‘Solstice,’ another solid entry in the druid-rock pantheon.

 

Vol. I (2012)

The crackling of feedback that pushes Vol. I out of the gate is the signal to the listener that this is Hints' statement of intent. Between the vast sweep of 'Ritual's midnight incantation and the bouncy euphoria of flipside 'Built A Church' lies the field of play for subsequent Hints releases.

 

All At Once

This one-off gem was an longtime show-closer and the first song in the Hints arsenal. A proper jangle-and-bass anthem dedicated the loves that are worth waiting for.
