Video: Haim — “Falling”
Not that I needed further evidence Haim have created an awesome sound that hearkens back to the 1980’s, but the three-pack of sisters from Los Angeles have supplied it with “Falling,” their newest single, and the accompanying video, which is some strange amalgam of Flashdance and Wet Hot American Summer. The ladies do their best to rock climb and shoot bow-and-arrow in jorts and sunglasses, and somehow manage to look sexy while those funky guitar licks and drum-machine rumbles provide the oddly fitting soundtrack. The video is kinda sorta mesmerizing, not just because these are talented, attractive women, but because it creates this irresistibly awkward, disorienting vibe. I’ll stop rambling so you can see and hear how great this song and video are.
