HAIM stream new song, ‘Edge’
After one of the longest runways to a debut full-length maybe ever, HAIM‘s “Days Are Gone” is finally out. You won’t find this track “Edge” on it, however.
The tune, co-written by Twin Shadow, only appears on the UK iTunes deluxe edition. And you know, there may be good reason for it. It’s a pretty little power ballad of a tune and cranks the ’80s revival zeitgeist up to 11 (the rhythmic chime symbol actually sounds a little like Peter Gabriel’s “In Your Eyes”) and it’s pretty good, as is everything HAIM does, but it’s not as strong as the rest of “Days Are Gone.”
Anyway, you can stream it below. And for a really awesome new tune—maybe one of the most criminally overlooked of the summer—take a listen to Twin Shadow’s “Old Love/ New Love.”
