At long last, it’s Haim time!
Well… almost. The sister trio promised fresh music back in March, saying in a Twitter video, “We’ve just been in the studio for so long. At this point, we just wanna go out there and play the songs live.” At the first stop of their summer tour on Tuesday night in Santa Ana, Calif., they made good on that promise by debuting a pair of new songs. The first, “Give Me Just a Little of Your Love,” is a bouncy pop rock tune with a hella catchy chorus.
The second, “Nothing’s Wrong,” is a moodier, wistful county rock number with a guitar solo that reaches the heavens. Yep, it’s good to have these girls back.
Along with both new songs — which will presumably appear on Haim’s forthcoming sophomore album, the follow-up to 2013’s Days Are Gone — they also paid tribute to Prince. Swaying their instruments in unison, they offered up an electrifying, purple-soaked cover of his 1984 classic “I Would Die 4 U.”
