Hinds Brothers Debut Nominated for SAMA 2014 (South African Music Award)
Two years in the making, the Hinds Brothers debut 'Ocean of Milk' has become an album of the heart with a living tale. 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 top musicians. It was mixed by award winning producer Dan Roberts and mastered in New York by Alan Douches (Sufjan Stevens, Roky Erikson).
'Ocean of Milk' has a wholly cohesive depth to it that resonates with the great albums of yore, while brothers Aden and Wren Hinds' beautiful songwriting and arrangements are artfully complimented by the lush and acoustically textured production. The harmonic resonance of the two distinct voices, together with their reflective and honest lyrical sensibility communicates true profundity - bringing meaning and nourishment to an art form that has been somewhat neglected in recent times.
Now at the very beginning of 2014 there has been alot of good news and hype surrounding the Durban brothers, with the recent announcement of a record deal with Sheer Records, South Africa's biggest indie label & now the latest news that Ocean of Milk has been nominated for a SAMA (South African Music Award) in the category of Best Adult Contemporary Album of 2014.

"We are very, very stoked to announce that 'Ocean of Milk' has been nominated for the Best Adult Contemporary #SAMA award 2014! Huge thanks to everyone involved in the making of this epic labour of love, we are very proud..." - Hinds Brothers
