There’s a lot to say about Haim’s Like A Version take on Shania Twain’s 1998 classic That Don’t Impress Me Much: we could talk about that silky-smooth guitar solo, the pitch perfect vocal interludes, or the sheer audacity to attempt such a big tune and actually pull it off.
But the thing we’re most struck by is how instantly the gang gets stuck into that groove. It is 0-to-100 in the mood stakes, friends. Surely there are regulations against laying down a vibe so luscious on a Friday morning.
After that, we’re left with two related thoughts: Haim have just laid down a contender for Like A Version of the year, and they could just be natural successors to Twain her-bloody-self.
