Haim - The WIre
Family telepathy can be the only explanation for how slick their sound is.
More polished than Simon Cowell’s gleaming set of chompers, ‘The Wire’ is the latest release from California rockers Haim, following this year’s EP ‘Falling’. Having only released their first EP a year before, the band have already been snapped-up by big-deal labels, picked up all the new band gongs under the sun and performed at three different stages at Glastonbury 2013. ‘The Wire’ continues their glossy R&B tinged rock – a grooving bassline is combined with finger-clickin’ good handclaps, with the odd burst of screeching guitar injecting the track with even more attitude .
Alana even gets a well-deserved verse, and as ever, the layering of instruments is as tight as Este's legendary 'bassface'. Family telepathy can be the only explanation for how slick their sound is – though we definitely don’t need to be mind-readers to work out that their debut album is going to be an absolute corker.
