    Haim - Days Are Gone

    Haim - Days Are Gone


    Three sisters and a drummer make up Californian Haim. Their sound, although obvious in its influence from Soft Rock to Synthpop, brings a fresh, unique sound to a stale marketplace. Vocals are a combination from all three sisters that range from light and delicate to strong and compelling; the drums incorporate influences that keeps the pace interesting, and lead and bass vary effects with distorted, heavy basslines adding weight to certain tracks.

    Hits 'Falling' and 'The Wire' are reminiscent of Michael Jackson and Enya while 'My Song 5' reminds of Joan Jett. In 'Honey & I' The Police are recalled, and strong synth leads are prevalent through the title track itself, and this diverse sound plus lyricism that will resonate with many make for great listening. Holding back the album slightly is the occasional lack of texture that prevents a potentially richer sound, but the album remains a fantastic debut from Haim with more to offer on every listen.
