I haven’t done one of these in a while, so I will compensate by putting two in one! Not the newest of the new, but definitely bright and shiny and incredible. If I could be in any girl band, I’d pick HAIM in a heartbeat. They’re a band of sisters, all with awesome names (Este, Danielle, and Alana) so I would have to change my name to something like Irena. Anyway. HAIM sort of reminds me of Michael Jackson because of their quick, crisply annunciated diction but the similarities end there. Here’s one of my favorites by them:
One thing I love about their music videos (besides general styling of everything) is their triangle formation. Triangles are my favorite shape.
Okay, now Foxygen! I have less to say about them cause they’re more a recent find for me, but I am intrigued. I hear different things about them, but I am digging this song. I guess today’s Lately Listening posts both feature bands from California! West coast best coast, anyone?
