Amoeba Review

07/05/2017

HAIM's combination of art school sophistication and teenaged lyricism felt perfect when Days Are Gone dropped on the scene. But in the four years since their first album, they have become one of the best pop groups of the last decade. There's something familiar and intimate in Something To Tell You that's uncharacteristic of today's Top 40. HAIM uses modern pop production of digital voices, slow build-ups, and ancient drum machines, but spins them in a way to make an album that still abstractly has roots in indie rock. HAIM spent the last year opening for Taylor Swift, and that experience playing in front of stadium sized crowds raised the stakes for their sophomore album. "Right Now" seems destined to be forever tied with summer 2017. Opening with a haunting organ harmony, the song is slow and steady until it explodes with rage and emotion. The first climax erupts into noise rock strangeness, but the second climax is heavy percussion (modified to sound right out of the '80s) and a gentle string harmony until the song hits a soft, delicate finale. "Want You Back" starts off like a guilty pleasure '90s adult contemporary jam, but then it slams with a hook that instantly gets stuck in your head with its thick riff of tropical rhythms, slap bass, and a bit of electronic funk. This is a strong contender for the jam of the summer, but it's hard to pick with this album. With every repeat listen, there's a new element in their unique, singular production and endless creativity on which to focus. Something To Tell You might be the thing to make HAIM start headlining stadiums themselves. The brightest and most sunshiney pop today.
