HAIM’S debut album ‘Days Are Gone’ will be released on the 27th September through Polydor Records/Universal Music Australia. ‘Days Are Gone’ is a record that wrestles with that early live potential and fully realises it, showcasing the breadth of their collective and individual talents. Having performed live together on stages from a very early age, it’s that innate understanding of each other’s musicianship that acts as both the strength and catalyst behind everything the band do. Plenty has already been made of the band’s R&B influences, but it’s a shimmering guitar-fuelled, West Coast pop that surfaces across the 11 tracks on the LP. Sharing all the songwriting between themselves, ‘Days Are Gone’ is a record that features songs that stretches right back to when the band first formed (Forever, The Wire, Let Me Go), and songs written in the latter stages of 2012. Opening on their 2013 release ‘Falling’, it’s smartly followed by the song that introduced them back in March 2012, ‘Forever’. ‘The Wire’, a huge live favourite and current single, receives a slick production but loses none of the energy and passion that makes it so enticing on stage.
