DIY’s November issue is all about musicians who break the rules. Some of our favourite acts shun the norm, switch gears and ignore outside pressure to get their way, so we decided to bunch them together into a massive cover feature.

It’s led by Hinds, Madrid rule-breakers whose debut album ‘Leave Me Alone’ is testament to sticking by your guns. They’re joined by the brilliant Run the Jewels, Shamir and Father John Misty - acts who stand out by doing things their way.

The suggestion that Hinds jumped straight into the deep end - without a single look back - is no exaggeration. For a lot of new bands, the immense pressure could have been 
overwhelming. Hinds, though, have a single motto that they’ve stuck by. Nuestras mierdas, nuestras reglas. Our shit, our rules.

Whether they’re harnessing their innate talent for prompting stage invasions wherever they go, mounting full-scale missions to befriend musical hero Mac DeMarco, or sticking firmly to their analogue guns in the studio, Hinds have lived by that mantra from the beginning.

Elsewhere in the new issue, rule breakers arrive in the form of Father John Misty, shunning the singer-songwriter stereotype; Run the Jewels, never compromising in their bid to take over the world and Shamir, maintaining his independence while taking on the charts.
