VH1’s latest addition to the You Oughta Know family is, in fact, a family themselves! Say hello to HAIM, the California-based trio made up of sisters Este (bass), Danielle (guitar + lead vox) and Alana (keys). The band’s rapturously received debut LP, Days Are Gone, just dropped yesterday, and we recently sat down with the sisters HAIM and got them to spill all of the secrets about the songwriting and recording process.
Yesterday, the ladies walked us through the first five tracks on Days Are Gone, and today they’ll take us through the album’s second side: “Don’t Save Me,” “My Song 5,” “Go Slow,” “Let Me Go,” and “Running If You Call My Name.”
6. “DON’T SAVE ME”
KEY QUOTE: “‘Don’t Save Me’ was the first song we had recorded after the Forever EP came out. It was kind of a scary time for us.”—Alana Haim
