HAIM is three Los Angeles sisters by that very last name who have taken the cues of their multifaceted musical childhood and blended it into a sound that’s all their own. The trio, all under 23, claim to be inspired equally by the discerning taste of their folk-fan parents and classic ‘90s R&B, and it shows in their music.
HAIM are offering their first three-song EP, Forever, as a free download, and we can’t recommend it highly enough. We’re particularly partial to “Better Off,” which layers impeccable group vocals reminiscent of TLC or early Destiny’s Child over electrifying psych-rock guitar riffs. And closing track “Go Slow” would be a radio ready R&B ballad, complete with sexy bassline, were it not for that shimmering guitar. Check it out.
