Haim: NPR Front Row

"I'm schvitzing," says Este Haim. She's just two songs into a blistering set for a sun-burned crowd packed shoulder-to-shoulder at Cedar Street Courtyard. You'd think the California band would be used to the sunshine.
Haim (pronounced to rhyme with "fry 'em") combines three long-haired sisters, drummer Dvash Hutton and the best trends of the past three decades — '80s pop, '90s R&B and '00s anthemic folk — to create an infectious sound that is poised to dominate the summer of 2013. Their debut album is expected to be out later this year, but in the meantime, watch them perform their latest single, "Falling."
