Artist Spotlight – Haim

Leave a comment


So,

Haim and Palma Violets lead the pack in NME's Stars Of 2013 issue

If you view my topic sidebar at all, you see I happen to talk about Haim a lot.  Well, looks like it’s starting to catch on.  I’ve been singing the praises of this LA-based sister group, and now major music media is starting to pick up on them as well.  There are articles all over the interwebs about the girls, for instance:

NME

Consequence of Sound

They also took home a victory in the BBC  “Sound of 2013” poll and were nominated for numerous NME awards this year.   Next thing you know, they will be a VH1 “You Oughta Know” Artist.  These girls have really put out some strong tracks so far and their EP Falling is due out in April.

The trio has a busy schedule this year:  They are at SXSW this week playing a couple of showcases, they opened for a number of dates on Mumford & Sons most recent tour (and even cameo in their newest music video for Whispers In The Dark), the girls are hitting up the festival circuit as well, including dates at Governor’s Ball, Firefly Festival and Bonnaroo just in the US, are about to go back out opening for Vampire Weekend on the North American portion of their tour.  I’ve already seen them once so far this year and will be seeing them again as they open for Of Monsters And Men in between their three North American festival dates in June.

If you haven’t listened to them yet, expect to hear them A LOT this summer and love it.
