HAIM are SPIN’s next cover stars, and the evidence of their excellence is all around. Look no further than NPR’s stream of the Los Angeles sister-band’s debut album, Days Are Gone. Actually, do look further, because there’s more. First of all, you could do worse than to rewatch the videos for “Forever,” “Falling,” and “Don’t Save Me,” or to just stream “The Wire” on repeat. (Maybe not while streaming The Wire, the show, though.)
We’ve also already been introduced to HAIM’s dexterity where covers are concerned (remember that Sheryl Crow homage?), and now we’ve got a pretty wild one to witness. Above, the ladies visit the BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge, where they deliver a faithful rendition of Miley Cyrus’ Billboard chart-topping “Wrecking Ball” ballad. Enhanced by shimmering guitar and gushing keys, the version sounds perfectly at home (and a little Twin Peaks-y) in HAIM’s hands.
