HAIM Releases New Video for Single ‘Forever’

Announces Dates with Mumford & Sons 

  
“Get to know HAIM before everyone else becomes obsessed (and trust us, they will).” – NYLON   
   
“stripped-back nu-folk-meets-nineties-R&B-pop sound …enchanting.” – VOGUE ‘Band of the Week‘   

“the kind of band that legendary musicians and producers ask to work with.” – Interview Magazine
  

LA sister trio HAIM has released a brand new video directed by Austin Peters for the title track off their Forever EP, available for free download. The Guardian (UK) describe the video as “the perfect mix of studied, cool, 90s teen drama and Destiny’s Child dance moves.” HAIM performed select East Coast dates this spring, including a sold-out NYC headlining show, before a run of European dates. The band was hand picked by Mumford & Sons to tour with them on select dates this summer, including shows with St. Vincent, Dawes, Justin Townes Earle, and more.

In a recent ‘World Cafe: Next’piece NPR said, “The band’s performances at SXSW stirred up buzz on music blogs [and] Forever…has been blowing up since.” Comprised of bassist Este, lead guitarist Danielle, rhythm guitar, keyboard, and percussionist Alana Haim, the girls spent their childhood playing with their parents in a family band, and have now ventured out on their own, adding drummer Dash Hutton to round out their dynamic live set. Over the past few years, HAIM has performed with Julian Casablancas, Ke$ha, Grouplove, No Age, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, and Ryan Adams, who made a special guest appearance at their recent LA show at the Echoplex collaborating on a cover of Fleetwood Mac’s 1969 song ‘Oh Well.’
