Music Review: Rock sister trio Haim shines on debut (VIDEO)

Haim, "Days Are Gone" (Columbia Records)

October 5th, 2013 by REETU RUPAL, Associated Press in News

Siblings Este, Danielle and Alana Haim have been steadily gaining momentum with tour support slots for Mumford & Sons, Rihanna and Florence + the Machine. Their audience is mostly comprised of young girls who just want to rock out without giving up on their pop just yet.

"Days Are Gone," the trio's debut album, is slick and radio-friendly, thanks to producers Ariel Rechtshaid (Vampire Weekend, Usher) and James Ford (Florence + the Machine, Arctic Monkeys). The tracks are delivered with energy and confidence and catchy hooks are easy to come by. This album is instantly likable.

"Forever," "Falling" and "Don't Save Me" are upbeat jams laced with 1980s synth guitars, while "My Song 5" is gritty with its Muse-esque dark guitar licks and R&B vibe. "Let Me Go" is full of attitude, with the group showing off their perfect harmonies.

The album's closing track, "Running If You Call My Name," brings Haim's anthemic pop-rock effort to a close with vulnerable lyrics and punchy vocals. These L.A.-based sisters are newcomers, but they've made quite an impact with this stunning debut.
