Haim – review by Pauline Keightley

haimHaim at SW3 Glasgow

Review by Pauline Keightley

Glasgow’s hippest venue SW3 was packed with many female fans in the front rows.I first heard the band perform on the BBC Jools Holland show and I thought their sound was refreshing. A few months back they supported Florence and the Machine, which was a good opportunity for the band.
I like Haim – good to see a girl band that play well and look good and didn’t totter about the stage in huge heels!  The three sisters from Los Angeles let loose their joyful harmony singing and cool rhythms. Este, the oldest ,is a talented bass player – equally talented are Danielle, who plays guitar with drama, and energetic Alana on keys. On drums is Dash Hutton. The three sisters take turns on lead vocals, which makes makes the gig more interesting. They are also tremendous fun and provide great entertainment.

haim3.tThe crowd enjoyed their Fleetwood Mac cover and new single Falling. Another favourite was their song Save Me, which is also a favourite of mine. They finished their encore Let Me Go. I enjoyed their relaxed manner, sublety and infectious energy. Their rather unusual rhythms also caught my attention.

This band is the second Californian girl rock band I’ve taken photos of – the first being Warpaint a few years ago. I am not sure where the Scottish girl bands are?
