HAIM’s “If I Could Change Your Mind” and Other Dances to Learn This Weekend
May 9, 2014
HAIM have spent the last year showing the world just how cool they are. It’s a campaign that might seem desperate or deliberate, if it didn’t feel totally effortless on the sisters’ part. But they’ve outdone even themselves with these latest moves:
With the help of choreographer Fatima Robinson, the three sisters channel their inner Destiny’s Child—windblown hair and all—in the video for “If I Could Change Your Mind.” While the hip swivels, turns, and snaps (oh, the snaps!) may have caught us off-guard, it’s no surprise that the video is relentlessly, unapologetically cool.
In honor of HAIM’s newfound prowess on the dance floor, Groupon has pulled together a playlist of songs with great dance videos. We’ll now spend our weekend mastering Janelle Monáe’s “Q.U.E.E.N.":
Or perhaps we’ll take advantage of Scissor Sisters’ instructional video and have a kiki:
In any case, we’ve compiled the unceasing weirdness of Hot Chip, the surprisingly deft moves of Arcade Fire, and Radiohead’s Thom Yorke being Thom Yorke, among others. Listen below, then spend many, many hours mastering the moves on YouTube.
HAIM will be at the Riviera on Saturday, May 17, at 8 p.m. Tickets are $23.50 and can be purchased here.
