HAIM IS BACK! The soft rock band, famous for both being related (they’re all super cool sisters) and very musically talented, posted a new song on their YouTube channel, called “Right Now”. The group announced yesterday that they will release another album after a four year hiatus. For a mega fan like me, this is SUPER EXCITING, but then I heard the song.
I think that if you wait four years to release another album, everyone has all of these great expectations for what it should be. The first release of “Right Now” is a teaser for the rest of the album. It is an acoustic version, I assume of the song, but really I have no idea. It is really good and features the same strong bass that their first EP, Forever featured on pretty much every song. There is a lot of drummin’ in there and it really gives the song a more dancey vibe. I dig it on a surface level. It is amazing, but it isn’t anything different from their past songs.
The song is really good and is kinda sad considering it is about a breakup, I think. I mean, all of HAIM’s songs are about a breakup on the surface and at this point it is a little repetitive. I like HAIM a lot because they’re amazing, but I hope their next album isn’t as breakup-y and it is a bit different, but we shall see soon, hopefully.
