Haim, "If I Could Change Your Mind"


I go back and forth on Haim. Sometimes I'm all, "This is exactly the kind of low-investment sonic palate I need to color my world right now," but other times I'm more like, "Oh, come on, be less obvious." That actually makes it seem as if I don't really appreciate Haim at all, which could not be further from the truth: In this age of constant distraction and inescapable demands made on your attention by everything around you there is an almost spiritual hunger for something that you can simply appreciate for what it is, and there is no band right now which fits that particular bill like Haim. Huh, this still doesn't sound like a huge thumbs up. Hell, just listen to the song, maybe you'll get what I mean.

I've looked at Haim from both sides now
From win and lose and still somehow
It's Haim's illusions I recall
I really don't know Haim at all

Still not feeling them either. Pretty girls making catchy pop is right up my alley, but something's missing.

Going to agree with LondonLee here. I think the problem for me is that Haim feels too LA glossy/overproduced. A bit more sonically challenging, but for new borderline pop stuff, I like Wolf Alice a lot.
