In this brand new feature I will be talking about anything from musical artists, to TV shows, to even shops that have seemingly disappeared for the time being, and trying to lure them back to doing what they are good at. This edition is about the genre-defying American trio of sisterhood, Haim.
Haim first came to prominence in 2013 with the release of their debut album Days Are Gone. The band, consisting of sisters; Este, Danielle and Alana made waves in the music world with their unique sound incorporating elements from Rock, R&B and Pop. Haim effortlessly created musical masterpieces by drawing from a vast plethora of influences including Michael Jackson and Fleetwood Mac, which as mentioned, make for an eclectic sound.
Their singles include; Don’t Save Me, Forever, Falling, If I Could Change Your Mind, The Wire and My Song 5 (My personal favourites being Forever and Falling). Each of these songs instantly memorable to anyone familiar with the tracks. These tracks are iconic not only for their vocal arrangements, and enchanting pulsating guitar riffs, as well as their hummable melodies, but for their display of the obvious camaraderie between the sisters. They know their sound and what they are about and this is evident from the album; the music speaks for itself.
The band has also proven their worth beyond the album, with cuts such as their take on Tame Impala’s ‘Cause I’m a Man, Woman which is a spectacular take on the already phenomenal track by the Australian psychedelic rock band.
In addition to their work with Tame Impala, the band have also created songs for film soundtracks including Insurgent and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay. On top of this, they have also been working on their radio show HAIM Time, which airs on Beats 1 on Apple Music, and have been touring. So it is evident that they have been keeping busy amidst their absence from the music scene. However, I am hoping that the sisters are also working on some new music because the world needs another Haim album! Where you at, Haim?
