Portishead’s Geoff Barrow has slammed HAIM, claiming the band sounds like Shania Twain.
The multi-instrumentalist took to Twitter yesterday (September 23) and made the comparison between the Haim sisters’ band and the ‘Man! I Feel Like a Woman!’ star, and made it clear that neither artist was to his particular taste.
Barrow tweeted, “Hiam [sic] sound like Shania Twain.. When did that become a good thing?”
This is becoming a semi-regular occurrence on the social media platform these days, as Barrow slammed The Weeknd on Twitter back in July for using a Portishead sample on Twitter without his permission, and last week (September 17) he tweeted: “Really…Kings of Leon co writers have gone well down hill.”
Anyhoo, read our HAIM The Wire review. There is sadly no mention of Shania Twain though.
