Musical Monday: Haim

This week I’m turning to a trio of kick-ass ladies for inspiration. Haim (life in Hebrew) is an American pop rock band from Los Angeles comprising three sisters: Este Haim (bass guitar and vocals), Danielle Haim (lead vocals, guitar, and drums) and Alana Haim (guitars, keyboards, and vocals) and reformed in 2012.

The group’s first release, Forever (an EP released as a limited-time download), combined with positive reception at the South by Southwest festival, led to a deal with Polydor Records and a management deal with Jay-Z’s Roc Nation group in mid-2012. The band began recording material for their first album, Days Are Gone, in sessions between touring dates, including appearances at the Glastonbury Festival. The album charted in the top ten in several countries, including the number-one spot in the UK, and by the end of 2013 the group had won several “best of” awards.

The group was nominated for Best New Artist at the 57th Annual Grammy Awards. Their second album, Something to Tell You, was released in July 2017. Their third album, titled Women in Music Pt. III, was released in June, 2020. The group received nominations at the 63rd Grammy awards for Album of the Year (for Women In Music Pt. III) and Best Rock Performance (for “The Steps”).

Haim has been compared to the 1970s soft-rock band Fleetwood Mac, though the group says they are “squeamish” about this comparison and insist they are influenced by more recent music.The group has rejected the “girl band” label, preferring to be respected as musicians on their individual merits.

Here’s the ladies rockin’ 3 am……enjoy.

  1. Woah, I must say though, I’ve been wanting to check out Haim since forever, so I’m glad to have stumbled across this post! I’m such a huge fan of the Grammys every year (and this year’s was gorgeousss ) and after watching the Nominees clip for album of the year, I’ve been thinking about them ever since! Which one would you suggest that I listen to first? 3 AM?😄 xx

    • Absolutely Buddy but I’ll have you know I do not under any circumstances consider myself old. Age is just a number. My mind and body are only 39.
