32 INDIE / ROCK Event preview Haim @ Kentish Town Issue 57 / 2013 GUESTLIST RECOMMENDS Lorde Haim return to London to play Kentish Town's Forum and, once again, bring their 70s infused soft rock sound to an audience that can't seem to get enough of these Californian sisters. 9th of December Debut album "Days Are Gone" proved be a massive hit among the masses, even getting to the number one spot on the album charts, and much more is expected of the trio. Expect crowd favourite "The Wire" to get a huge reception as well as "My Song 5" and "Don't Save Me". Event preview Ty Segall Lorde, the New Zealand singer/songwriter, real name, Ella Maria Lani YelichO'Connor, is the 16-year old everyone is talking about with her newly released single 'Royals' topping the charts worldwide. Her stylised mix of arty confessional bedroom pop and club-ready electro-rock has drawn comparisons to the likes of Grimes and Lana Del Rey. It was her number 1 selling single that really brought her to the public's attention, by taking aim at the world's obsession with celebrity culture and the way that we view celebrities as idols, Lorde was able to establish herself as being a credible artist right from the off. It will be interesting to see if Lorde holds onto this talent she has for creating hard hitting but, ultimately, well crafted and high selling pop sound. Good luck, Lorde. More @ NEW RELEASES Australian Ty Segall is a huge favourite on the Indie scene at the moment. His album "Twins", released last year, contained one of 2012's stand out tracks in "Thank God For the Sinners" and this year he returns with "Sleeper", a darker album which reflected a torrid time in the life of the 26 year old. Ty brings energy and enthusiasm to every show he plays as well as an incredible talent for psychadelia which Australian music has thrived off in recent years with the success of Tame Impala and Pond. This gig is sure to bring a lot of the trendy kids down to it so it's definitely one that you want to be seen at. Mt.
