HAIM, 'Days Are Gone': Fall Music Preview 2013
Release Date: Sept. 30
"I feel like every day is a perpetual surprise party for me," says bassist Este Haim, whose alt-rock trio with sisters Danielle and Alana has traversed the globe and received glowing critical acclaim in the months prior to their debut album release. HAIM performed in Los Angeles for more than five years before releasing its "Forever" EP in early 2012 and signing to Columbia later that year. Singles like "Falling" and "Don't Save Me" were showcased to burgeoning crowds at Bonnaroo, Glastonbury and Lollapalooza, and the rest of "Days Are Gone" maintains a similarly effortless understanding of rock arrangements. But the oldest Haim sister is still surprised that the album even exists. "I honestly never thought that we would put out a full record," Este says. "It was always daunting."
