Most Anticipated of 2017: #6 Haim Take Summer by Storm

haim-2016

Four long years have passed since one of recent memory’s most lauded debut acts hit the scene. Haim charmed the music world in 2013 with the release of Days are Gone, a simmering R&B-tinged pop rock debut album that landed them as the opening act on Taylor Swift’s 1989 World Tour, live performers on SNL and festival headliners across the country.

You’ll have to forgive the Haim sisters if they’ve been a bit busy, but even so, the ladies have been hinting at a new album just on the horizon for over a year now. When 2016 passed with no new music, the band’s growing fan base began to whisper. So…what’s the hold up?

Multiple rumored producers have surfaced in the past year, including an “organic” in-home self-produced record from the band. It’s clear that Haim are taking no chances with what is quickly becoming a crucially important sophomore release. If it’s not exactly right – they won’t be releasing it. As of now, the band is pointing at a summer 2017 release date.

It’s difficult to be mad at the ladies who have become some of the most likable figures in the indie rock realm, especially when Days are Gone still goes down so smooth. However, with each subsequent listen, that album begs even harder for a second chapter.
