Five bands every Haim fan should hear

The three sister from LA have easily been the success story of 2013: their debut album Days Are Gone went straight in at Number 1, they’ve been the talk of every festival they’ve played and have sold out every venue on their current UK tour. But if you’re new to the world of Haim’s music you might be wondering what to listen to next.

To point you in the direction of your next Haim style band crush, below are five acts that might not have appeared on your radar yet:

Chela

Australian native Chelsea Wheatley – aka Chela – first came to our attention this summer when she released her debut single ‘Romantiscie’ through French label Kitsune Maison, and we expect to hear a lot more from her in 2014.

Au Revoir Simone

Au Revoir Simone have remained on the periphery of main-stream indie success for nearly a decade now. The Brooklyn three-piece’s latest album Move In Spectrums is their most accomplished yet, and more than deserves your attention.

Wolf Alice

If you’re a fan of Haim’s darker side, you’ll love North London quartet Wolf Alice’s grunge leaning guitar pop. The band have released several singles already this year and hopefully a full album is on its way soon.

Claire

Claire are a five-piece band originating from Munich, Germany and their incredibly infectious synth-pop has already seen them tour with the likes of Chvrches and Bastille.

NONONO

Stockholm’s NONONO continue Sweden’s trend of making ridiculously good pop music – seriously, just try and listen to their debut single ‘Like the Wind’ only once.
