Living Room Pop

Haim (one of my new favorites) just posted their first video. Here it is:



Living room band practice, bike tricks, R n' B synchronized dance moves, childhood video footage, and sweet lo-fi pop that somehow reminds me of our childhood babysitter who had a massive Kewpie doll collection and used to drive us around in her CRX and play "Hold on to the Nights" over and over again. Like, she would just rewind that tape and play it again. A quick Google reveals the singer of that song to be Richard Marx. I always thought it was a woman. Anyway, Haim and their modern ballads. I'm not saying that I'm planning a breakup, but should that ever happen Haim's entire library is going on my Breakup Mix.

We shall pray to the gods of summer for a Grimes/Haim double bill and until then, living room dance parties will keep the candle burning bright.

Amen, Brother Gabe. Amen.

Is a reference to Corey Haim?

Rachel Wrong said...

No reference. They are three sisters and their last name is Haim. Here's their backstory courtesy of Vogue: http://www.vogue.com/culture/article/band-of-the-week-haim/
