Alana Haim, Este Haim and Danielle Haim of HAIM pose backstage at Coachella on April 18, 2014.  

Haim promised that they would be hitting the road this year with fresh music and at their first tour date on Tuesday night in Santa Ana, California, they delivered. As first reported by NME, the sisterly trio wasted no time getting the new tunes out there during their headlining gig at The Observatory, their first show since February. 

In addition to covering Prince's "I Would Die 4 U," they debuted two new songs reportedly titled "Nothing's Wrong" and "Give Me Just a Little Bit of Your Love." The latter is a funky rock tune with a super-catchy chorus that, like a number of Haim's best tracks, harkens back to the sound of 1980s new wave.

"Nothing's Wrong" has a moodier, darker vibe, highlighting their vocal harmonies and a Fleetwood Mac-like California country rock groove.

Back in March, Haim released a video in which they said they were ready to leave the studio and air out the new material. “We’ve just been in the studio for so long -- like, perfecting and trying to get it right," the band said. "At this point, we just wanna go out there and play the songs live." No release date has been announced yet for the band's first new release since their full-length 2013 debut, Days Are Gone.

Here's their tribute to Prince.

They also showed off their new tour merch, which looks awesome.
