HAIM - "Forever"

Forever, the new three-track EP from the Los Angeles sisters known as HAIM, has been releasing some seriously funky Kate Bush vibes into the atmosphere of late. Danielle, Este, and Alana Haim gracefully step from layers of jumpy R&B flavored harmonies on opener "Better Off" to the sensual call-and-response burn of "Go Slow" and the epic closer and title-track, "Forever"—a sharp and masterful cut of bass-driven grooves and dance floor candy. "Forever" is a song you can't just play once. In fact, it's hard to stop playing. That handclap and synth breakdown near the 3:20 mark? Hips will move and mountains will shake. If you dig, last month we wrote about Danielle Haim's excellent collabs with her beau, guitar extraordinaire Blake Mills. Danielle also recently classed it up on Conan with Mills in what is easily the best musical performance I've ever seen on late night television.
