Song of the Week: HAIM's 'Don't Save Me'

By Daniel D'Amours | The Lost Boys December 1, 2012 at 10:41AM

What's really fun about this week's pick is that it reminds me the 1990s era boy and girl bands. Spice Girls, Destiny's Child, Backstreet Boys....  HAIM is sort of an 2010s indie version of them. They consist of three sisters from Los Angeles who grew up in a musical family.  They've perform a lot with their siblings until they decided it was time for them to build their own little show. We can easily feel the classic, folk and R&B influences of their childhood in their pop. "Don't Save Me: is the first single of their upcoming album. Their last EP "Forever" showed everyone how these Californian sisters can easily blend almost any kind of musical styles that would normally be so far apart into a perfectly catchy three minute track. I can't wait to hear more from them. They are definitely a great 2012 discovery. You'll like them if you like: Cyndi Lauper, First Aid Kit, Regina Spektor What to wear while listening to that song: Ripped jeans shorts and Rayban What to do while listening to that song: Biking What to drink while listening to that song: Soda Pop
