Haim

"We used to do covers of rock songs by musicians like Billy Joel and Santana," middle sister, guitarist, and lead vocalist Danielle Haim, 22, explains. "Dad played drums, Mom played guitar, Este played bass, and Alana played everything else." Unfortunately, teenage rebellion comes in many forms (even in the laid-back Haim household) and, growing up in Los Angeles in the late nineties, the sisters were much more interested in what was playing on local pop radio stations like KIIS FM. "I think we were pushing out against our parents a bit," says Este, 24. "Every Sunday they'd put on 'Breakfast with the Beatles,' but we'd always want to switch it over to something like TLC, En Vogue, or Brandy and Monica."
Los Angeles sisterly trio Haim are currently visiting NYC, having played Santos last night (anybody go?) and will be at GLasslands on Saturday (5/5). You can download their Forever EP from their website. It definitely owes more than a little to '80s Fleetwood Mac and early '90s Top 40.

Tomorrow's show at Glasslands is with Team Spirit (Ayad of Passion Pit) and Workout. All upcoming tour dates are below

Another chick band who look like they're at a guitar lesson when they play live. How fun.

saw them last eve. awful. the little one with the signature head throw back didn't realize that her guitar wasn't plugged in properly and the only noise we heard from it was loud clunking. bassist needs to know that she's not so much the humorist. the lead is bearable but possibly only in comparison to the other two

When the best thing about your band is your press photos, you are doomed.

Saw them at SXSW, too - did we see the same show? All three of them played like shit. None of them came off like they wanted to be there in the slightest. The audience was just embarrassed for them.

anyone who likes this, is a sellout. not a pop fan, but a sellout. You have no taste and should be neutered.
