Haim: Girl Powa

Who needs another feel good girly song to dance around your kitchen to?

This aint your average pop bull shit, guilty pleasure. This is girl power in lo-fi perfection that will have you reminiscing of movies like Pretty in Pink and The Breakfast Club and funky guitar riffs that I can't help but find similarities in the great hits of MJ. I don't know if I'm over exaggerating the 80s influences of their sound, but I will say they do bring back a little 2000's memorabilia by throwing in some sweet Destiny's Child moves (I'm not kidding). In a strange way, they kind of remind me of a female Vampire Weekend (anyone else hear it?).

I'm in love with Haim's video for a reason I should probably be embarrassed about... it reminds me of the movie "Now and Then." 

I can't tell you how many times I watched that over and over as a child and dreamed about running the neighborhood with a pack of hormonal pre-teens with explosive family drama and awesome tree-houses (I had to settle for a scraggly bunch of 3rd-6th graders which formed my creatively titled Dumpster Kids Club, but that is a whole other story.)

p.s. You can download their EP fo free on their website! So charitable to starving ears.
