Alana, Este and Danielle Haim are taking the country by storm, literally – the American pop-rock trio are in the midst of their One More HAIM tour, hitting 24 states before continuing on to the UK.  Self-described Valley girls at heart, the three sisters are funny, quirky, and are expanding their audience to Gen Z through viral TikToks. 

Having just achieved a lifetime dream of selling out the Hollywood Bowl in their hometown of Los Angeles, and after multiple Grammy nominations along with an acting debut in Paul Thomas Anderson’s Licorice Pizza, the family band are back focused on their music and sharing it with you. 

Ahead of their DJ set at U27 Hooky Day, we caught up with the HAIM sisters at Soho Beach House Miami. Read on to hear more from the interview.

What’s it like coming back together focusing on music and touring after your acting debut?
‘We’ve been waiting to tour our album, Women In Music Pt. III, since it came out during the pandemic. It feels so good to be able to play our songs live after being home for so long.’
 
What has been your most memorable moment on tour so far and why?
‘Playing a sold-out Hollywood Bowl was a dream of ours since we were little. We used to drive by it every day going to school and hope that we could headline there one day. Being on that stage was truly life changing.’
 
What show are you most excited for? 
‘It’s really hard to choose. We are just so happy to play.’
 
Which sister is spearheading your TikToks?
‘We never take ourselves too seriously, so really when we make videos, we are only trying to make each other laugh.’
 
Will you perform ‘I’m Gonna Be Hungover’ on tour or mix it into any upcoming shows? 
‘If it’s requested, we will sing it!’

What was the most unexpected reaction to your TikTok presence? 
‘It got our mom to download TikTok.’
 
Do you have any pre-show rituals? 
‘Steam, steam, STEAM.’
 
What was the creative process like making ‘Lost Track’?
‘We were really inspired by the book Appointment In Samarra by John O’Hara. We had the melody and music for a while, but once we read the book the lyrics came quickly.’
 
What do you hope people take away from your shows?
‘We put our heart and souls into our live shows; all we want is for you to have a good time.’
