From the moment I first listened to one of their songs – and not even a full song, it was within the opening seconds – I was hooked on Haim. Consisting of three sisters (“and a mister” who plays drums) from San Fernando Valley CA, Haim is taking rock music and r&b and mixing them up to create a sound so fresh and new you literally won’t be able to stop listening. Este, Danielle and Alana play bass, lead guitar, and rhythm guitar/keys/percussion respectively, and have been honing their skills since childhood when they played classic rock music with their parents in a family band called “Rockinhaim.” All three girls play the drums, and have since childhood, which definitely seems to have an influence on their highly percussive sound.They just released their debut 3-song EP “Forever” in February 2012 and already have the music scene buzzing – I can’t get enough of the video for the title track, it is so much fun! Check it out below, as well as the equally amazing song “Better Off.”
It’s hard not to notice their effortlessly cool rocker-girl style, as well. Get the look with the items below!
