It's hard to select three tracks for your weekly Freegal Downloads because "Days Are Gone" plays like a greatest hits album. Every song displays HAIM's knack for writing catchy hooks, sing-along lyrics, and dancing beats. Some of my favorites include:
1) Falling - with synths and pounding drums straight from a Peter Gabriel song, the echoing chorus (Now I'm Falling) is guaranteed to get you moving!
2) Days Are Gone - the title track does not disappoint with catchy guitar riffs, funky synth lines, and plenty of 80s seasoning to keep you rocking out in your car.
3) Running If You Call My Name - Dreamy 80s synthpop with booming drums and tinkling chimes. Again, if your toes aren't tapping or you aren't humming along to the singalong chorus (I'll be running if you call my name...), you might want to try for a position with the British Royal Guards!
Hope you enjoy!
