This is the comeback we were waiting for.

Banger


This is it. ‘Right Now’ was the alluring teaser for Haim's much anticipated second album 'Something To Tell You', but ‘Want You Back’ is the real thing. Full of confidence and making its presence felt, they're are firmly back in the swing of things and ready to reclaim their space at pop’s top table.

Like all the best Haim bangers it bores its way into the head and won’t let go. Building from swelling verses to a fizzing, finger snapping cracker of a chorus it’s a vivid and vibrant return from a band who can do it all. There’s nuance too - slap bass pops and supremely funky guitar stabs all held together by the sister’s impeccable harmonies. Each member has their moment. Haim are not about the individual, it’s all about the collective. When they get together to record glorious pop music like this it’s worth that three year wait.

The best thing about ‘Want You Back’ is not just the fact it’s got hooks and charm a plenty, it’s the fact that it’s filled with pure joy. Haim have never been a band afraid to let their infectious personality and classic pop sensibilities shine through. Full of passion and desire, this is the comeback we were waiting for. Martyn Young
