Ok so these have been hyperhyped if you will, especially by NME. Also there's constant comparisons to Fleetwood Mac who I've never really listened to. These 2 factors mean I've always written these off as going to be average. Their band name is crap as well. So I go on to spotify to smugly prove myself correct as I stick on their brand new certain to fail debut, and from second one I think it's brilliant. Why the majority of pop music sounds so shit I don't know, THIS is what it should sound like! Hooks I actually hope are going to stick in my head.
Side note: the jam I was going to put up before about 1 minute ago was Generation by Liturgy, so check out the worlds most ludicrous looping instrumental after you listen to Haim, hopefully your brain doesn't melt and squirt out of your skull like a deleted scene from Evil Dead :)
