I don’t know what it is about girl bands that I love so much. Probably because if I could do life over again (and have a killer voice), I would have undoubtedly been in an all-girl band.
Since starting this blog, I am constantly keeping my ears open for new music to write about. Last weekend I was in the car with my best friend, Hallie. Hallie is one of those girls that just loves those girl power, energetic, glam-pop songs ..the songs you can run forever too and feel like a different person. She introduced me to the song “The Wire” by Haim (pronounced like lime, but with a “P”). When she put this song on we did our typical jam out session in the car that we have been doing since high school. And since I haven’t been able to stop listening to the song….
The sibling rockers have blown up in the UK this past year and are slowly making their way to the United States. Since their debut of the album Days Are Gone in 2013, they have shown their capability in making it in the music industry. The Strokes, Rihanna and Mumford & Sons have all given them rave reviews on their indie pop tunes.
In the Huffington Post’s online article back in October, they said the LA natives are taking Europe “by a storm.” The band’s plan for the future is a large extensive tour in 2014 throughout the UK and Europe.
The three sisters (Este, Danielle and Alana Haim) grew up in Los Angeles and spent their childhood as part of family cover band Rockinhaim. Together, they played at local venues and crafted their own R&B-influenced soft rock. After a few years, the sisters parted ways to get school degrees and go on with life until they gave it one last final shot.
Since their debuts they have opened for Florence and the Machine and Mumford & Sons. After their performance at Glastonbury festival, they received a top ranking in BBC’s Sound of 2013 Poll and signed with Jay-Z’s RocNation management group. So keep your ears open people, they’re comin’.
I was just listening to this song about an hour ago on the freeway, and I know that fellow drivers alongside of me had quite the show. But seriously, besides the awesomeness of the song and lyrics, the video makes it even better. The track deals with heartbreak in an uplifting and triumphant manner. Check it out below.
Actually, they may be coming even sooner…
The sisters plan to make an appearance on November 23’s “Saturday Night Live.” Tune in! They also got their name in the Rolling Stone’s November issue titled “How Haim’s Three Geeky Sisters Became the Year’s Coolest New Band.”
