    If you like Haim, listen to Monogem

    It's hard to pinpoint exactly what makes a song feel "retro," but a lot of it has to do with the melody. While a lot of newer pop music relies on tricks like pitched vocals, production magic, and dumbed down repetition, Haim thrives because of the fundamentals. What makes a Haim song so good comes down to the melodic songwriting and the execution. Los Angeles duo Monogem nailed both with "The Glow."
