Words: Saam Das
We're eagerly anticipating some more original material from our favourite trio of sisters (and their gentleman drummer) but in the meantime, we have HAIM's cover of Fleetwood Mac's 'Hold Me'. The track is part of 'Just Tell Me That You Want Me: Tribute To Fleetwood Mac', which came out this week. Listen to the HAIM cover below.
We've been in awe of HAIM so far this year, even going as far as declaring them one of our top three artists of 2012 mainly off the back of spectacular live performances at The Great Escape and headlining Dingwalls. Spectacular isn't quite the word we'd use for the 'Hold Me' cover, not particularly deviating from the original albeit with an added sass that we've come to expect.
The track appears alongside covers by the likes of Best Coast, MGMT, Marianne Faithfull, Lykke Li and many other bigger and smaller names. It's quite an incredible line up and you can listen to the record in full at soundcloud.com/concordmusicgroup. Check out the 1982 original 'Hold Me' below, along with the HAIM cover.
