We’ve been fans of HAIM ever since they nearly blew out their speakers during a performance earlier this year at the VH1 headquarters here in New York, and their contribution to You Oughta Know In Concert does not disappoint. Especially their cover choice.
Sisters Danielle, Alana, and Este took the stage hot on the heels of their well-received debut album, Days Are Gone. In addition to tracks like “The Wire” and “Forever,” HAIM pulled out an old family favorite: “Strong Enough,” by Sheryl Crow. They were assisted on vocals by their good friend Lorde, together forming an even more powerful female supergoup should any of them need to look more cool. The sisters do more than justice to the song, even getting a nod of approval from Crow herself. Watch closely as Este taps away on a glass bottle, and Lorde’s right hand takes on a life of its own.
Check out scenes from their night in New York City below, as well as their full cover of “Strong Enough”–easily the best surprise and biggest moment from the show.
And in case you were still wondering how to properly pronounce their name… we’ve got your back. (It’s “hahy-uhm”!)
