Riff: Haim – “Forever”

Jan 30, 2013

I’m tired of fighting the good fight/If you say the word, then I’ll say goodbye

from Forever lyrics by Haim

One of the tracks which contributed to Haim’s BBC Sound of 2013 win, the percussive funk-pop of “Forever” justifies the Fleetwood Mac comparisons, not only for its multi-layered harmonies, but also for its Rumours-esque dissection of a turbulent affair which is eternally on the verge of collapse.
