Everyone loves a girl band. Yesterday, three of my favourite girl-trios released new videos, so I thought I’d put together an article to celebrate how amazing they all are. We’ll start with the wonderful Haim.
When the three sisters released their Forever EP earlier this year, I was instantly in love. Their timeless R’n’B inflected folk-rock was catchy, heart-warming and complex – a real breath of fresh air in what was becoming a pretty stale genre.
Currently prepping for their tour with Florence and The Machine, I’m sure that Haim are destined for success. Yesterday they released the video for new single Don’t Save Me. In the clip the three girls show off their basketball skills, clearly keen on being signed by their local team. Watch the excellent video below.
Next up is London’s Novella.
My first experience of this band was live at The Old Blue Last earlier this year, and it was totally brilliant. I could go off on a tangent about how attractive the lead singer is, but I won’t, because that could take away from how good this band really are. Yesterday Italian Beach Babes released the girls’ exceptional new single Mary’s Gun, and the video accompaniment was unveiled.
Combining elements of grunge-pop, with a hint of psychedelic rock, Novella are something quite special. Forming in Brighton almost 6 years ago, the girls have taken a while to find their sound and focus their time on the band, but of late it seems like they’re taking things to the next level. The trio have two London shows coming up in December, the first of which at the Queen Of Hoxton on the 2nd, and the second at The Water Rats on the 20th with Echo Lake. If I were you, I’d go to both. Watch the hazy lo-fi video for Mary’s Gun below.
Finally, last but most certainly not least, we were treated to a new video from Liverpool’s Stealing Sheep.
Fresh off an extensive stint of touring with Mercury Prize winners Alt-J, Stealing Sheep yesterday unveiled a stunning video for their new single ‘Rearrange’, set for release on December 3rd. The video was filmed over the course of a month in various locations in Liverpool and Wales, including disused quarries, giant warehouses and deserted art spaces. It makes for a pretty incredible video which perfectly compliments the song.
The track comes off their critically acclaimed debut album ‘Into The Diamond Sun’ released earlier this year. Watch the video for Rearrange below.
