12. Haim "Forever"
Label: National Anthem
Producer: Haim & Ludwig Goransson
The video's current top YouTube comment describes "Forever" as "Wilson Philips meets early Michael Jackson and a bit of Pat Benatar." Those are some lofty comparisons for a band that doesn't even have a full-length album out, and the influence is more than apparent, but their style doesn't come off as anything close to a bite. Instead, the three sisters from L.A. keep their sound fresh with a welcome infusion of youthful transgressions in the lyrics and a vocal approach all their own.
