You know what they say: you wait for one bus and then they all come along at once. Well, that’s sort of how it feels with Haim’s new music. Their debut album, ‘Days Are Gone’ smashed the charts in the UK, heading straight in at Number One, beating the likes of Justin Timberlake over four years ago.
Now, Este, Danielle and Alana are back with their sophomore album, aptly titled, ‘Something To Tell You’. This was the sister-acts’ resurgence into the musical world, after what felt like a lifetime. When asked about their delay in creating the second album, the siblings always stuck to the lines, “We write and produce our own music.” In a recent interview with NME, the band opened up about their traumatic personal life, when their close friend and producer Ariel Rechtshaid was diagnosed with testicular cancer. This was the real reason for the delay, and one which can be heard throughout the emotional album.
If you’re after something slightly more upbeat, BloodPop is to the rescue. The producer, who previously went under the guise of Blood Diamonds has spiced up Haim’s ‘Little Of Your Love’ and given it an electro feel with massive drops. After working with the likes of Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga and Charli XCX, we think he’s pretty much nailed this one as well.
Haim have announced a handful of live dates in the US starting September 5th. If you want to catch them in the UK, you better get your tickets to this year’s Reading and Leeds Festival. After having to pull out of their appearance last year, the trio are back and headlining the BBC Radio 1 / NME Stage for a special performance. Weekend Tickets are still available for Leeds and Sunday Tickets are available for Reading, here.
