Haim – Forever
Haim an LA-based quartet – three sisters and drumming friend Dash Hutton – who received rapturous reviews at SXSW this year have released EP ‘Forever’, with the title track a true beauty. Lot of talk at the Austin, Texas event was of the band’s mixing of endless genres, but Forever is full of energy indie pop at its very best mixing percussion and stunning vocal harmonies in a Drive meets Fleetwood Mac vibe.
Haim are Danielle Haim ( vocals, lead guitar), Alana Haim (vocals, rhythm guitar, keyboards, percussion), Este Haim (vocals, bass) and Dash Hutton (drums). The video (above) directed by Austin Peters sees old footage of the sisters as kids on holiday inter-cut with them riding on their bikes while guys do wheelies on motorcycles. The video is something of a lovechild of Lana Del Rey and Drive, with a heady mix of 90s cool and some RnB girl band dance moves.
Haim’s The Forever EP is out now on National Anthem Records.
