This weeks’ track comes from LA female 3-piece Haim (rhymes with ‘rhyme’) with their latest single Falling.
A friend of mine recommended the song to me the other day and upon hearing it I was instantly smitten and had to make it my song of the week.
Have a listen below:
The first thing that will no doubt hit you about the song is the vocals. As well as the sweet harmonies (the girls are also actually sisters), the delivery of the vocals also stands out as being catchy and unique - influenced by Stevie Nicks with a little bit of MJ thrown in there too. In fact, you can hear their cover of the Fleetwood Mac song Hold Me HERE.
The production on this track is wonderful too – evoking a sunny and nostalgic late 80s/early 90s vibe whilst still sounding fresh and exciting. Again, it’s insanely catchy and warm.
Another awesome song you should by Haim you should check out is Forever.
It’s great that a band of three talented sisters like this is slowly getting the exposure they deserve and I look forward to checking out their debut full-length album when it does get released.
In the meantime, check out their Facebook page for more info and updates.
