Haim bestaat uit de drie zussen Este, Danielle en Alana Haim die samen met drummer Dash Hutton Haim vormen. In 2007 beginnen ze met optreden, maar hebben dan nog niet het idee om een professionele band te vormen. In 2012 tekenen ze, na de release van hun mini-album Forever, een contract bij het platenlabel van Jay-Z. Tijdens hun tournee maken ze het materiaal voor hun debuutalbum Days Are Gone, dat in het najaar van 2013 verschijnt en zes singles oplevert. Zowel in Australië als het Verenigd Koninkrijk bereikt het album de gouden status.

In 2014 werken ze mee aan Pray To God, één van de tracks van het album Motion van Calvin Harris. De dames scoren er in april 2015 hun eerste Top 40-hit mee. Ook zijn ze te horen op Meltdown, de openingstrack op de soundtrack van The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1, dat in de Tipparade blijft steken.

Songtekst

Lorde meet King Push

Life is like a costume party
Just cover the floors in Cavalli
Let's hide the hurt in a molly
We're all tryin' to be somebody else
You can't hide your tears in wealth
When your heart knows you hate yourself
It's all pain we felt
Just the way that the card's been dealt

Cover up all that is passed
Drop an olive in your glass
Putting on a disguise
It's an ocular vice
Everyone on the run
Fifty feet all on the gas
Take him out, take him out
Gonna take him out

We're the only theory they can't prove
And we don't have anything to lose

In my eyes, in my ears, bring might
Love is only figured once in life
Tell the crowd, search the town
And we made it all meltdown
It's a full meltdown

Try to break her spirit
So it shouldn't be surprisin'
That we're here with no fear
And give her uprising
Gonna blend in
With the bullies and the bureaucrats
Arrows pierce like lightning
Choppers sound like thunder clap

Never will you stand
We gon' lay you down
Debonair and dapper kids
Comin' in to take the town
Try to restrain us
Even though you trained us
We're better than you are
Now we're gonna make you feed us

Cover up all that is passed
Drop an olive in your glass
Putting on a disguise
It's an ocular vice
Everyone on the run
Fifty feet all on the gas
Take him out, take him out
Gonna take him out

We're all lookin' for status
Cristal sent over on gratis
Can't pretend we're not plastic
When these poker faces take practice
Who to trust, who to love
Who to run from, who to hug
Set fire to a government of thugs
Respect only comes from the money or your blood

We're out of sight
Shadows of light
They're closing in
And I know where we're goin'
But I don't know who I'll be

In my eyes, in my ears, bring might
Love is only figured once in life
Tell the crowd, search the town
And we made it all meltdown
It's a full meltdown

In my eyes, in my ears, bring might
Love is only figured once in life
Tell the crowd, search the town
And we made it all meltdown
It's a full meltdown

I can hear and see a ghost (In my eyes, in my ears, bring might)
In my mind I know
And if you keep, wrap your rope (Love is only figured once in life)
I'm your undertow
I can hear and see a ghost (Tell the crowd, search the town)
In my mind I know
And if you keep, wrap your rope (And we made it all meltdown)
I'm your undertow (It's a full meltdown)

I can hear and see a ghost (Was it meant to be)
In my mind I know (Cause I can't see)
And if you keep, wrap your rope (I can't see)
I'm your undertow
I can hear and see a ghost (Was it meant to be)
In my mind I know (Cause I can't see)
And if you keep, wrap your rope (I can't see)
I'm your undertow

I can hear and see a ghost (Was it meant to be)
In my mind I know (Cause I can't see)
And if you keep, wrap your rope (I can't see)
I'm your undertow
I can hear and see a ghost (Was it meant to be)
In my mind I know (Cause I can't see)
And if you keep, wrap your rope (I can't see)
I'm your undertow
