Listen: Haim – “Falling”

14 Feb

Haim - Falling

Can anyone stop Haim? More to the point, why would anyone want to? The three sisters from LA have been tearing it up in the last few months, topping both the Blog Sound Of 2013 and BBC Sound Of 2013 polls, as well as featuring on our own Tracks of 2012, EPs of 2012 and Artists to Listen Out For lists.

They show no sign of slowing down either and their latest track, “Falling”, is another infectious and funky blend of R’n’B, Pop and Rock. We could jabber on about the 80’s influences or we could bore you to tears with more mentions of just how brilliantly they bounce their vocals off one another. We could even talk about the little piano notes that tumble sporadically in the background, and how it is these minor but oh-so important details that help set the girls apart from other acts.

But we won’t, because this is Haim and you already know all of this. Instead we will concentrate on just one element of the song in particular, the totally killer bassline that pulsates along at the start of the track like an electrocardiogram, before exploding into some Dev Hynes-esque funk.

Take a listen below and we dare you not to get your groove on, can’t be done can it?

”Falling” is available now on iTunes and will be released on ltd edition pink 10” vinyl on 1 April.
