HAIM

 

It’s been awhile since a hippie-chic girl group came around and grabbed my attention, then along came . Dubbed as the modern female version of Hanson, because these three beauties are indeed sisters. They may not be singing to 12 year old girls, but they do create symphonic indie pop hits that are very sing-a-long able and cheekily enjoyable. Their newest track “The Wire” is about trying to make a relationship work and fudging it up at the last minute. I can tell in her (Danielle, on vocals) voice she really wanted it to work but she even says “it felt right, but I fumbled when it came down to the wire.” I love the nonchalant attitude about it. HAIM is all like, “Hey I tried and it didn’t work, I don’t need to write a sad breakup song about it” (or that’s what I imagine them saying at least). Because they are cool hippie chicks like that, duh.

An upbeat drum harmony and symbol paired with steady guitar riffs, spiced up with an escalating tempo and confident lyrics is “The Wire.” They don’t mess with jazzy instruments or sound effects to make this song likeable and catchy. These ladies have yet to release even a LP after winning the BBC Sound of 2013 poll, but have been trucking on their debut album which they finished recently in L.A. and will be releasing on September 23. This is the first track to be showcased and it’s their most impressive work to date. Want to hear more of their un-released album? Well if you’re heading to Lollapalooza this weekend check them out on Saturday at 3:30 @ the Petrillo Stage and your likely to catch some more new tracks, just as fun to listen too.
