Check Out Haim’s New Single “The Wire”

It would seem that sister act Haim is giving Of Monsters And Men a run for their money for the title of “Most Famous Band Before Their Debut Album Is Even Released”—if such a title existed, that is. Already known across the globe due to heavy touring and a series of well-timed singles and EPs, this week Haim released yet another teaser single, “The Wire.” NME reports the band is also finally finished recording their debut album, which should be released this fall.

“The Wire” is already a live show favorite, so this studio version should play quite well for fans. Zane Lowe officially premiered the tune on BBC 1 radio, but the band have also made it available for live streaming on SoundCloud. See what you think!
