Haim (pronounced /haɪm/ to rhyme with “time”) is an American rock band hailing from Los Angeles, California. The band consists of sisters Este Arielle (born March 14, 1986), Danielle Sari (born February 16, 1989) and Alana Mychal Haim (born December 15, 1991) along with drummer Dash Hutton, son of Danny Hutton and previously a member of the bands Wires on Fire and Slang Chicken.
Most frequently compared to Fleetwood Mac, Haim’s sound has been described as “nu-folk-meets-nineties-R&B” and “music that sounds like it was written on a lakeside retreat attended by Stevie Nicks, John Waite and En Vogue“.
In June 2013 they finished their album Days Are Gone, which was released on 30 September 2013. The band released “The Wire” as a single on July 29 and on September 29 they performed on the BBC’s Andrew Marr Show in the presence of British Prime Minister David Cameron.
HAIM has been compared to 70s soft-rock legends Fleetwood Mac; however, they insist that their influences are a bit more up-to-date, revealing they are big fans of 90s girl groups TLC and Destiny’s Child, and of Kendrick Lamar, Jessie Ware and Mariah Carey.
Consequently, their music sounds like folk-rock “with a few R&B/hip-hop stylings thrown in for good measure”.
They laid waste, too, to a herd of ghastly old hobby horses about guitar bands being unmarketable and record sales only being tied to women’s state of undress.”
