“Forever” by Haim | Called it. Haim has come out of top on the BBC’s Sound of 2013 poll. I got something right! Woot! (And to make it better, AlunaGeorge is in second place. My prediction this year has been so spot on.) I mentioned before, when I first wrote about the band two months ago, how I like the way they sound like the 90s (and, fine, a bit of the 80s) while fitting in perfectly with today’s sound. But I fell in love with them even further when I unwittingly recorded their live session on Lauren Laverne’s 6 Music show. I was listening to it in the middle of an old relative’s wake when I realized just how fun the three sisters are in an interview. Just so… boisterous and funny and, you know, cool. And everybody’s raving about their live shows too. I’m not expecting to see their CD in the Philippines any time soon, but I think I have something new to ask Jeany to send me. Sorry, Jean.
