HAIM feat. A$AP Ferg – My Song 5




Haim (pronounced hy-əm and stylized as HAIM) is an American pop rock band from Los Angeles, California.

The band consists of sisters Este Arielle Haim (born March 14, 1986), Danielle Sari Haim (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“.

The band played at the 2013 Glastonbury festival (and again in 2014), earned a top ranking in BBC’s Sound of 2013 poll, and later signed with Jay-Z‘s Roc Nation management group.

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”.

In her survey of pop music in 2013, Observer critic Kitty Empire praised the band for “using the vector of harmonies to splice R&B with 1970s soft rock.

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.”
