The entire 94.7 Fresh FM staff is giddy with excitement over our next Fresh Faces, Fresh Music show. This time, we’re bringing the band HAIM to the Hamilton for a special acoustic performance just for our listeners.
As a way to ready ourselves for the awesomeness that is about to happen, we decided to do some research and learn a little bit more about these three sisters.
So, without further delay, here are 10 things you should know about HAIM.
1. The band is made up of a trio of sisters: Este Arielle, Danielle Sari and Alana Mychal Haim
2. They were originally part of a band called Rockinhaim with their parents, but dropped the “Rockin” when the sisters went out on their own.
3. They are a band of girls, but don’t call them a girl group. They say the difference between them and Spice Girls or Destiny’s Child is they can all play instruments.
4. In fact, even though they each play their own instrument in the band, all three sisters are able to play the drums, too. They now have a boy in the group named Dash who plays the drums.
5. They all are from the San Fernando Valley, aka “The Valley” in LA.
6. Before starting Haim, sisters Danielle and Este started their own band called the Valli Girls and a song of theirs made it on the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants soundtrack.
7. The sisters are quite brilliant. Este studied Ethnomusicology at UCLA and finished the five-year program in just two years.
8. They’ve opened for Mumford & Sons and Florence and the Machine.
9. They caught America’s attention last November when they performed on Saturday Night Live.
10. Carly Rae Jepsen is one of their biggest fans.
