Many folks regard the sister trio Haim as having one of the best albums of 2013, so I decided I’d at least take a listen to one of their songs. And you know what? They ain’t half bad! Yes, “The Wire” is clearly one of their more popular songs, and I haven’t yet dug that deep into their catalog, or into the album as it is, but this song is actually pretty cool. Of course it’s all about relationships, breaking up, moving on and so forth, as evidence by the dudes in the video. But the songs is equal parts sunny, flowery and glossy, while also having a twinge of darkness and angst to it. Makes me want to delve a lot deeper into the world of new millennium pop music in 2014, something I’m planning on doing anyway. All in all, it’s easy to see why 2013 was a big year for Haim with songs like this!
