The three sisters of the band Haim claimed our hearts in 2013 with “The Wire”, a song that unapologetically rejoices over the freeing feeling the end of a relationship brings. Now the sisters, whose swingy hair and rock star attitudes make them look like a trio of apparitions sent to save teenage girls from the trauma of adolescence, have returned with a new song “Night So Long” from their album “Something To Tell You”, out July 7th.
Sisters Este, Danielle, and Elana Haim, who debuted another song from that album, “Little Of Your Love”, on SNL in May, also brought their signature kicking-ass-and-taking-traditionally-Jewish-names-back style to Shania Twain’s “Man, I feel Like A Woman.” Wielding electric guitars and middle-parts, the sisters continues to define themselves as leaders in coolness and in music.
