If you haven’t heard of these girls yet, where have you been? Seriously?! The Haim sisters are cool, funny and incredibly talented… what’s not to love?
The Wire is their third single to date, not including unofficial releases and EPs. I wrote about their first single, Forever, just over a year ago (see that post here) – even then, I was very excited to see what else they had in store. They’ve since gone from strength to strength, releasing track after brilliant track, and receiving praise from pretty much everyone in the industry. You may well have seen them sharing the cover of NME with Palma Violets back in January, after having released just two singles.
The question that’s been on everyone’s lips since then is “when’s the album out?!” Thankfully, Haim have finally announced that we can expect their debut album, Days Are Gone, on September 30th. It seems The Wire will be released with the album on the same date.
All that there’s really left to say is that this single is just as fantastic, catchy, and punchy as the others… if not one of the strongest so far. And the video is bloody hilarious, so enjoy!
