Hailing from the San Fernando Valley, Haim consists of ‘three sisters and a mister’. The sisters – Este, Danielle and Alana – grew up playing classic rock songs with their parents in a family band called Rockinhaim. After years of playing with their parents the girls decided to strike out on their own and began writing their own material.
In 2012 Haim released a three song EP titled ‘Forever’ and spent the year pursued by a surge of industry attention. Their incredible live appearances at Austin’s SXSW and Brighton’s Great Escape only intensified the excitement around the band’s addictive, percussive songs.
More than anything, Haim are excited to make music that is making both them and their audience flush with happiness. The band toured the UK, supporting Florence & The Machine and Mumford & Sons and impressively went on to win the BBC’s Sound of 2013 Poll. The BBC stated, ‘Haim have an unapologetic passion for music that shines in their songs. They’re brilliant musicians who have a real talent for tunes that merge their tales of growing up in the 21st Century with a classic songwriting ability’
Haim have released two EPs since the 2012 debut: ‘Don’t Save Me’ produced by James Ford, and ‘Falling’ produced by Ariel Rechsteidt. The band released their debut full length album ‘Days are Gone’ in September 2013 which subsequently reached Number 1 in the UK and has since sold over 200,00 copies in the UK alone.
As of October 2014, the group are recording their second album. They also featured on the original soundtrack of ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1’. In November, the group’s vocals featured on Calvin Harris’ track ‘Pray to God’
