Their new album Deep Fantasy comes out June 17th on Domino.
Back when I saw HAIM at SXSW in March they played a small little day show, and it was super killer. Now they're ripping up Glastonbury and featuring the most attractive member of the Lonely Island (and sometimes Girls cast member) Jorma Taccone in their video. There's no doubt that HAIM are blowing up. Even White Lung's punk front-babe Mish Way called them the "Kardashians of modern rock". Their debut album Days Are Gone is out September 30. Get ready. I have a feeling that it's gonna be huge.
What better way to start off the week than to head over to the Hard Luck for some PBRs and BC punk? On April 22nd, Vancouver act White Lung stopped by Toronto to tear our Monday night a new one. Made up of three babes and one lucky dude, White Lung shoved and shouted their songs into our faces and earholes. Agressive? Absolutely. Yes there was a mosh pit, and yes people were crowd surfing, and yes we’re still in recovery.
With tracks from both 2010′s It’s the Evil and last year’s Sorry the set clocked at a short half hour, leaving us wanting more. Drummer Anne-Marie Vassiliou is a machine and it’s no surprise that many make a Courtney Love comparison with front woman Mish Way (a rad writer in her own right as well). They’re currently touring all over North America so check em out if they’re stopping by a city near you. You don’t have to, we just recommend that you do.
Saw these Vancouver punks last night at Hard Luck and totally got a mosh pit back injury whilst trying to take photos. Said photos and review on the way. Still in recovery. Here's a Vine to tide you over till then...
