haim interview

so you fell in love with danielle haim

maybe you saw her slay on the grammys red carpet in a flawless white suit

or you got a glimpse of her shredding the guitar

maybe a gif of her dancing caught your eye

or you heard that voice of hers

and you could tell that despite all her confidence on stage

she’s actually really shy

and a huge nerd

and so you found yourself head over heels in love.

shh it’s ok. don’t fight it. just let it happen

we’re in this together.

I just meet people and I’m like ‘I want to go on your shoulders now’. When I turned up on the Thursday last time, I wasn’t even playing, this was in the year I had off. I was like, I’ll get there on the Thursday, and all of a sudden it was Friday morning and my sister was having to hold me back because I was trying to dive-bomb Haim in their interviews for the BBC. My sister was grabbing me by my legs and pulling me back, like, ‘You are not even here to play! Get back!’ And then I learned Arctic Monkeys were playing and we were trying to get onto the stage but we went through the wrong door and ended up in the front of the crowd in the moshpit.

Florence about her last Glastonbury experience.

Imagine her taking the RIGHT DOOR DURING THE ARCTIC MONKEYS GIG?? Oh, the things we missed…


Haim: We’re a Band. Not a ‘Girl Band.’

Southern California’s favorite sisters Haim have been touring nonstop since the release of their full-length album Days Are Gone and sat down to talk with The Daily Beast about the one thing they hate being labelled as: 

Este: I’d even hear from dudes that were just like, “Yeah, women can play music, but it’s not rock music. There’s a place for women in music, but it’s not in the rock world.” 

I just never understood, like, you would never call a band like The Killers a boy band. So why are we a girl band? You know? We’re a band.  

Watch any live show the sisters put on and you’ll see just how hard they rock. With electrifying guitar and drum solos, Haim and so many other contemporary bands are proving rock isn’t only a “man’s world.” See for yourself when they take on FYF Fest this August.
