HAIM – ‘The Wire’ [New Track]

 

HAIM have spent the past few months holed up in an LA studio putting the finishing touches to their highly anticipated debut album. As they ready the release of the record, the sister-trio has premiered a sweet new tune called ‘The Wire.’ The track was produced by Ariel Rechtshaid (Major Lazer, Vampire Weekend, Usher)

Loving this. Take a listen!

Also, grab a disco-tinged, free download of HAIM’s ‘Forever’ by Australian duo, Streetlight Symphony.

Haim – “Falling” [Leonard Friend Remix]

 

Haim_LF_RMX

R&B whiz kid Leonard Friend takes on the catchy single from the the buzzed about Los Angeles sister trio HAIM.  Friend re-imagines the song with sparkling synths, a slowed down drum that gives a nod to Mtume’s “Juicy Fruit” (aka the sample for Biggies “Juicy,”) old Zapp records, Phil Collins and TLC.

In case you missed it, Leonard Friend released his LXLF ep just a few months back, a record packed with quirky synth explosions, slow jams, and dance-floor anthems like “Holograms,” “Middle of the Night” and more. The EP is available as a free download from Friend’s official site.

HAIM – “Don’t Save Me” [Official Video + Cyril Hahn Remix)

 

Up-and-coming sister trio HAIM have dropped the official video for the sparkling and catchy pop-rock anthem “Don’t Save Me”

In the video, the HAIM sisters prove they got-game as they take on fly-ballers on a basketball court.

And on the remix, the talented Cyril Hahn offers yet another winning remix as he keeps up the pop-flair with his own take on the track.
