The Event

The Hinds Brothers Durban 'Ocean of Milk' Live Concert Launch will be held on Saturday 31st of August 2013 at the Howard College Theatre in Glenwood, Durban. 'Ocean of Milk'  will be available on Tuesday the 27th of August 2013, while t

The Album

Two years in the making, 'Ocean of Milk' has become an album with heart and 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 SAMA award winning producer Dan Roberts and mastered in New York by Alan Douches (Sufjan Stevens, Roky Erikson). Incredibly 'Ocean of Milk' has a wholly cohesive variety and depth to it that resonates with the great albums of yore. The harmonic resonance of the two distinct voices and the brothers reflective musical composition communicates profundity, bringing meaning and nourishment to an art that has been somewhat neglected in recent times. A veritable treat to listeners' ears, the album is already gaining pre-release popularity. It was announced in July that 'Ocean of Milk' is to be the featured soundtrack of the Durban Surf Carnival of 2013 on Supersport. The Hinds Brothers' debut album is sure to set the listener on a journey of self-discovery and wonderment.

Aden and Wren are super excited about the upcoming launch and optimistic about sharing this album with the world. Now is the time for us as the city of Durban to rally behind these boys and help to bring their superb home-grown musical offering into the world.
