Haim Win BBC Sound Of 2013

By January 4, 2013

Follow me on:


Este, Danielle, and Alana Haim, better known as the band Haim, have been named the winners of the BBC's Sound of 2013. Past winners of the Sound Of... poll include Adele, Ellie Goulding, and Jessie J. Haim combine influences from folk, rock, pop, and hip hop into a sound that is very current and fits perfectly into today's more alternative leaning mainstream pop. Based in Los Angeles, California, the sisters were originally part of a band with their parents called Rockinhaim, but on their own are one of the big buzz acts of 2013. Haim have toured with both Mumford and Sons and Florence and the Machine. The single "Don't Save Me" was released in the UK on the Polydor label last November and made the first chart inroads for Haim. The full top 5 from the Sound of 2013 is below, and then check out the "Don't Save Me" video by Haim.
