Haim, worth checking out!

I heard this girl band from LA on Jools Holland the other week - HAIM - and I thought they were excellent with fun rhythms and vocals. I took photos of another cool American girl rock band called Warpaint a few years back. No cool Scottish girl bands around though... oddly?    

The band's releases include the EP "Forever" and the single "Save Me" 2012.  They were announced as winners of the BBC Sound of 2013.

Haim is a group formed in 2006 in Los Angeles who first released in 2012. The band consists of sisters Este Haim (born 1986), Danielle Haim (born 1989) and Alana Haim (born 1991), along with drummer Dash Hutton. Most frequently compared to Fleetwood Mac, their sound has been described as "nu-folk–meets–nineties–R&B" and "music that sounds like it was written on a lakeside retreat attended by Stevie Nicks, John Waite and En Vogue"
