A lot of my fellow bloggers have been pimping out a L.A. trio called HAIM, which features three sisters: Danielle, Alana and Este Haim. It’s about time that I got on board.
Earlier in the year they released their debut 3-track EP, Forever for free on their website (it’s no longer free). If you like female fronted vocal-pop with added mystique, Haim are your go-to girls. The EP is wonderful in approach and execution. Fans of Bat For Lashes should find a similar ground to stand on with Haim.
One listen to “Don’t Save Me” will serve as a proper introduction. Pop laden vocals sugar coated just enough alongside the electronic battleground, serves as a strong minded pop song. The band just released b-side “Send Me Down”, and it may be my favorite track yet. Ominous industrial effects muddle the background before the sisters incredible vocals kick in and provide natural hooks as if they had been doing this for decades.
Take a listen to both below, and go give that EP a listen. All of this should be enough to hold you over until the bands eventual debut album comes out next year.
