HAIM – Better Off

March 7, 2012

Attempting to generically define HAIM would be a fruitless exercise, not because their sound is unfamiliar, but because they cram so much into a single track. The three sisters from L.A. hop, skip and jump their way from 80’s pop to 90’s ballad to 00’s R&B, and that’s just on one track. “Better Off” is from upcoming EP Forever, and it’s a tune that feels simultaneously intimate and epic.
