This week hugely popular Los Angeles pop/rock band HAIM return with ‘Want You Back,’ the first single from their forthcoming album Something To Tell You, out July 7 on Polydor Records. The new single was produced by Ariel Rechtshaid, and you can hear it now on the Shoot New Release Sport Playlist!
The band consists of three sisters: Este Haim (bass), Danielle Haim (guitars and lead vocals), and Alana Haim (guitars and keyboards), who are joined on stage by drummer Dash Hutton. In addition to their primary instruments, each member is also proficient in several others. The group’s pop sound on their studio work stands in contrast to the more rock-based music of their live shows.
The group’s first release, Forever, combined with positive reception from a performance at the South by Southwest festival, led to a deal with Polydor and a management deal with Roc Nation in mid-2012.
The band began recording material for their first album, Days Are Gone, in between touring. The album charted in the top ten in several countries, including number one in the UK, and the group had won several awards by the end of 2013. The group was also nominated for Best New Artist at the 57th Annual Grammy Awards.
Recently HAIM announced the news of their new album with a video of the band performing new track ‘Right Now’ live in studio. The recording session was shot and directed by Paul Thomas Anderson (Magnolia, There Will Be Blood, Boogie Nights).
Pitchfork noted “the song is hardcore HAIM,” going on to say “This is what Haim does best, create a small universe in a song, then soundtrack it with ample fire.” The New York Times heralded the new music’s arrival saying “anyone worried about the vitality of mainstream rock music need not: HAIM is back,” and NME declared “HAIM return to storm the summer.”
HAIM will also debut new music live on Saturday Night Live tomorrow (with Melissa McCarthy hosting).
