I don’t mean to reward all seven of you with another absolute stonker available for free download, but with Haim’s ‘Go Slow’ I’ll have to apologise for doing just that. The Californian sisters have a released a short EP via their website and in celebration and recognition i have selected ‘Go Slow’ to seduce you into completing said download. The ethereal tones of the trio are epitomized by the track which relies on thumping Hurts-esque back beats and overlapping vocals emblematic of megastars Tori Amos and Kate Bush. After the stumbling intro, the verbal beats begin, eventually becoming drowned out by sweeping verses toing and froing tidelike onto a shore of minimalist drums and delicate percussion. Stunning and haunting in equal measures.
