Thursday, August 21, 2014 Studio Soundtracks: Catching Up With Haim Pre-FYF and Post-”My Song 5″
Remember when The Spice Girls first spiced up our lives with their British flag shift dresses and sky-high platforms, and you and your entire group of BFFAEAE each had to self-describe as a Sporty, Posh, Ginger, Scary, or Baby? (Fun fact: I was Sporty). Well, with Haim, the L.A. born-and-bred sister shredders made up of big sis Este, middle sis Danielle, and lil’ sis Alana, it’s similar, except there are less of them, and you’d be stoked-as-hell to be any one of the members (Admit it: nobody actually wanted to identify as Scary in the former situation).
Just a few hours after the drop of their new video for “My Song 5″ off of their debut album Days Are Gone, I steal a quick phone call with keyboardist Alana (who, at the tender age of 22, is known as “Baby Haim”) and we chat about the quirky video concept, which features cameos by the likes of A$AP Ferg (who raps on the original track and is apparently “literally the nicest dude ever”), Grimes, SNL‘s Vanessa Bayer, and Ke$ha. – Jane Helpern
