The Haim sisters display their early promise
on 7 August 2017
2013's 'Days Are Gone' is Haim's debut album and demonstrates the early promise of the 3 sisters, Danielle (guitar/vocals/drums), Alana (guitar/vocals/keyboards) and Este (bass/vocals). The most striking influences come courtesy of the Buckingham/Nicks era of Fleetwood Mac although it is really the sunny style of Christine McVie which comes across on tracks such as 'Falling', 'Forever' and especially 'If I Could Change Your Mind'. Although some of the songs are a bit too samey, Haim come across really well on the brilliant 'My Song 5' which is superbly inventive and 'Go Slow' moves smoothly through the gears. If you like Californian style harmonies alongside good old solid rock, then Haim should float your boat although they are even more impressive live on stage. Worth giving this collection a try.
