Hailing from the San Fernando Valley, HAIM consists of, “Three sisters, and a mister” that have been shaking things up in the city of Los Angeles for the past 4 years. It’s truly a family affair for the band which prides themselves on being able to switch from instrument to instrument with complete confidence + ease, & all while singing in three part harmony.
The sisters, Este, Danielle, + Alana, grew up playing classic rock songs with their parents in a family band, called Rockinhaim, which played for charity events + street fairs. After years of playing with their parents, the girls decided to strike out on their own, & began writing their own material. Este, the eldest of the 3, plays bass guitar & found time in between touring to graduate from UCLA with a degree in Music. Danielle, the 22 year old lead guitar player, who previously toured with Jenny Lewis, Cee-lo Green, & Julian Casablancas. Alana, the youngest in the band, plays rhythm guitar, keyboard, + percussion. Rounding out the group is Dash Hutton, who previously played drums for LA bands Wires on Fire & Slang Chickens. Over the past few years, the band has opened up for Julian Casablancas, Cold War Kids, Ke$ha, Group Love, No Age, The Bird & the Bee, Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros, Chief + The Henry Clay People.
Last month HAIM released a 3 song EP titled Forever, which is also the title track on the record. It can be downloaded for free at the band’s official site.
