Last month at the Mumford & Sons Stopover Music Festival, I was introduced to Haim, a three-piece hipster sister act from the greater L.A. area. Their high-spirited hair-in-the-air attitude has gotten them recognized as a band to watch by Nylon, Vogue, and Interview Magazine, and their uniquely raw sound reflects influences stemming from soul to blues all the way to folk-rock.
Today, thanks to N.Y. DJ-duo The Knocks, we have a hyped-up remix of their soulful single “Forever” that is equipped with enough jumpy beats and climaxed loops to get your body movin’ in all the right ways. Taking Haim’s choppy vocals and mixing it in with some 80s inspired grooves and building trance synths, this reworked version rallies several genres in order to create a fresh and infectious dance number that will bring back the fondness of summer splendor.
These ladies, who have just recently signed with Columbia and Polydor Records, are slated to release their first full-length album in early 2013. In the meantime, check out the mix, which is also available for free download in exchange for a ‘like’. Click here to jump on it.
