HAIM – The Wire (Tourist Remix)
Perhaps not the most likely of combos, but the Haim sisters work rather well with a sleek coat of paint from Tourist’s tin.
In his deconstruction of The Wire, he almost totally de-Haims it, morphing their pop hit into something far more sophisticated. Not that these long haired lovelies aren’t sophisticated; but there’s something about Tourist’s unmistakable style that connects with the electronic generation and turns these grungey girls into elegant women.
Haim’s long awaited Days Are Gone LP is out on Polydor on September 30 (order here) and with Tourist making an appearance his popularity in the states will surely – deservedly – grow.
