It’s been a great year for breakout band HAIM. The sisters have experienced major popularity in the last year and all before they’ve even released their debut album, which is due out this year. The band has recently released their new single “The Wire” and it’s sure to keep people excited about their upcoming full-length album. The song features the 70’s inspired guitar riffs and low, sultry vocal harmonies characteristic of their sound. Consequently, “The Wire” has already garnered comparisons to Fleetwood Mac, an assessment that isn’t far off the mark. However, HAIM manage to represent their own unique sound in “The Wire” with its funky melody and upbeat chorus. It’s catchy, yet relaxed; the perfect song to drive to on a lazy summer day. “The Wire” is the perfect song to garner even more interest in HAIM’s highly anticipated debut album ‘Days Are Gone’.
