Haim – Days Are Gone

Haim_-_Days_Are_GoneI missed seeing Haim last time they were in the UK as they sold out pretty quickly.  Not surprising as their live shows are notoriously great!    I think Haim have a very distinctive sound and whether they like it or not there is a touch of Fleetwood Mac in some of their songs.  Their varying style and vocal harmonies are what makes this album work so well.  You can tell their influences stretch wide, with RnB, Rock and Pop sounds running through.  Some tracks are great pop tunes while others go in other directions.  The prospect of a new album might mean they come back to the UK soon and this time i’ll be looking to book earlier.  On an unrelated note, I did my first proper street run this morning (ie: not in a gym).  Picking today when I was very tired might have been a mistake – it was.

Standout Track :  If I Could Change Your Mind does it for me every time.
