The trio of sisters Haim appeared in early 2013 at the top of the traditional 'BBC Sound of ...' list, in which critics and music experts elect names that should stand out in music during the coming year.
Danielle (vocals / guitar), Este Haim (guitar / bass) and Alana Haim (guitar / keyboards), American from the city of Los Angeles, grew up listening to 1970s classics and names like Joni Mitchell, the Beatles, Santana and so-called sounds from Motown. His parents even formed a cover band that played at charity fairs.
Haim's formation started in 2006, but the group began to emerge on the music scene in 2012. The sisters opened shows for Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, The Henry Clay People and Ke$ha, released an EP titled Forever in the month February of that year in digital format and the following month they performed at the South by Southwest festival in Austin, Texas.
The good performance of the Texan festival resulted in a contract with Polydor (from the United Kingdom), which launched EP Forever. Still in 2012, Haim opened concerts by Mumford & Sons and Florence and the Machine.
As one of the 2013 revelations, the female trio released their debut album, Days Are Gone in September.
The band was constantly compared to Fleetwood Mac. With its infectious folk pop, Haim won over not only music channels, but the admiration of other artists. At the Glastonbury festival, edition 2013, the trio was one of the attractions and appeared as backing vocals in the presentation of Primal Scream in three songs: "It's Alright, It's OK", "Rocks" and "Come Together".
