Buzz for HAIM couldn’t be bigger now that their debut LP Days Are Gone is less than a month away. The L.A. sister trio’s first single off the album, ”The Wire,” is a solid 70s-style classic rocker with amazing triple harmonies and an intense drum beat (à la The Eagle’s “Heartache Tonight“) produced with a modern indie rock touch.
In comes Tourist to give it some electronica flair. The Brighton-based house producer takes the single, cuts it down to the essentials and morphs it into a synth and bass heavy dance track. The harmonies now sound slightly deranged, and the synth track is overly upbeat, but it all works seamlessly together. When it’s all said and done, “it felt right.” Stream it below.
HAIM’s Days Are Gone is set to release on September 30th via Columbia.
