Song of the Day: “Don’t Save Me”


Male siblings seem to dominate many famous musical groups. Examples range from contemporary bands like Kings of Leon and The National to household names like The Jackson 5, The Beach Boys, The Allman Brothers, The Isley Brothers and The Neville Brothers. So it’s about time the ladies earned a bit of the spotlight. Though the sisters in HAIM—Este, Danielle, and Alana—grew up playing covers at weddings, the trio’s collective sound evolved into something completely unique after their musical parents, Donna and Moti, bowed out of the lineup. Since the release of their full-length album, Days Are Gone, fame has come quickly to them. HAIM’s pitch-perfect harmonies and tasteful use of synth makes their single “Don’t Save Me” a song the whole family can enjoy.
