"One of the hottest young rock acts on the planet." — Rolling Stone
"An infectious sound that is poised to dominate." — NPR
The three sisters "have made music together since childhood and draw upon that unshakable connection to construct songs that — unusually for millennials writing rock music in 2013 — are highly accessible alt-contemporary singles with a tinge of R&B. Their lush melodies aren't a difficult taste to acquire; Haim have deliberately built highly polished modern-rock songs that directly reference female-fronted pop icons like Fleetwood Mac, Heart and Shania Twain. Their much-ballyhooed full-length debut, Days Are Gone, is a shiny power-pop record that's truly been 21 years in the making." — Spin, October 2013
Days Are Gone is the debut album from breakout band Haim (rhymes with lime). Recorded mostly in Haim's native Los Angeles, the album sees sisters Este, Danielle and Alana Haim working alongside acclaimed producers Ariel Rechtshaid (Usher, Vampire Weekend) and James Ford (Florence and the Machine, Arctic Monkeys). Days Are Gone features crowd favorites "Falling," "Forever," and "Don't Save Me" as well as title track "Days Are Gone," which was co-written with Kid Harpoon and Jessie Ware.
The Southern California trio has attracted a surge of industry attention since releasing their EPs Forever, Don't Save Me and Falling. The band has also been prominently featured in Rolling Stone's esteemed Best of Rock issue and Elle's Women In Music issue, as well as recognized as "Faces to Watch 2013" by The Los Angeles Times, "20 Bands To Watch Out For" by Complex and "15 New Stars We Love" by Entertainment Weekly. In the U.K., Haim have impressively become the first female American act to ever win the BBC's Sound of 2013, an annual poll of industry leaders to identify the most promising new music talent. This award has been a reliable indicator of success in recent years, with Ellie Goulding and Jessie J being named the winners in the past.
Haim's electrifying live performances, including sold-out headlining shows at Los Angeles' Troubadour and New York's Music Hall of Williamsburg in addition to festival appearances at SXSW, Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, Firefly and Governor's Ball, have made waves on both sides of the Atlantic. Fader has declared that Haim's "practiced live show easily rivals any of their peers," and it is no wonder that Haim have been asked to support the likes of Phoenix, Florence and the Machine, Mumford and Sons and Vampire Weekend on tour.
