Haim hail the Sound

BBC’s Sound of 2013 has a winner. The poll in its 11th year, Haim have been elected as rising stars of the year ahead. London R&B duo AlunaGeorge is the runner-up. New York-based rapper Angel Haze came in third.
Previous winners were Michael Kiwanuka (2012), Jessie J (2011), Ellie Goulding (2010), Little Boots (2009), Adele (2008), Mika (2007), Corinne Bailey Rae (2006), The Bravery (2005), Keane (2004) and 50 Cent (2003). Other names you may have heard of ending up in the top five in previous years include Frank Ocean, Marina and the Diamonds and Florence and the Machine.
Californian sisters Este Danielle and Alana Haim started out in a family band with their parents but have since made their own way. The girls, though only in their early twenties, already supported Florence and the Machine and Mumford and Sons on tour, and have already been compared to the sound of Fleetwood Mac. They all play guitar, drums and sing. Judging the names shortlisted before, they will surely deliver their promise.
