Outside of their Forever EP we’ve not had any material from Haim, and hence this makes for a welcome surprise.
The overarching vibe is one of much more positivity than the work on the aforementioned EP. That manifests itself as instrumentation with much more funk and perkier vocals, with the former relying heavier on bouncy guitar plucks and speedy percussion, whilst the latter is catchy, pop-inspired work that’ll rattle around your brain for hours after listening to it. Essentially, it’s the same genre-blending HAIM style, but with a stronger lean on the pop side that gives it plenty of potential to break out into the mainstream. Enjoyable upbeat effort, and fingers crossed there’s more to come. Be sure to check them out on their upcoming tour across the UK next month.
