Los Angeles sisters Haim are no strangers to the music world. Middle sister Danielle has toured with Jenny Lewis and Julian Casablancas, and the trio has shared the stage with the likes of Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros and Phantom Planet. Yet, while the group has been well-known in their local scene for some time, Haim has yet to release a debut full-length album. (Their first-ever EP, Forever, was released digitally in the US and on vinyl in the UK earlier this summer.)
This week, BBC Radio 1 premeired “Don’t Save Me” — a breezy jam punctuated by smooth, layered harmonies, bubbly synth lines and icy percussion reminiscent of Kate Bush’s mid-career output. “Don’t Save Me” feels decidedly retro in its sonic textures, but manages to manuver away from the stale, overly-derivative patterns usually present in music inspired by past genres.
No word on whether “Don’t Save Me” will be included in any upcoming Haim releases. Check out the track below.
