In July, HAIM settled into the season’s hot weather with “Summer Girl”, their first single in two years. Now, the sisterly trio is back with another new track in “Now I’m in It”, as well as a corresponding music video helmed once again by acclaimed filmmaker Paul Thomas Anderson.
“now i’m in it is about going through it.
a depression. not leaving the house type of shit. for my sisters and i, there have been times in our lives where we have felt like we are stuck in a dark hole. this track speaks to that emotion.
the track is chaotic- like my mind when i’m spiraling. fast-talking to myself- words jumbled up. heartbeat racing. these times are hard to forget and even harder to work through. after being constantly on the go the past couple years, i didn’t wanna stop and deal with some shit. also, every day my sisters and i feel so fucking lucky that we get to do this for a living!!! it seemed like stopping and dealing with these emotions would be letting everyone down. but every time I’ve been depressed- it takes me accepting that I need help, to start to get out of it.”

HAIM’s most recent album, Something to Tell You, came out in 2017. However, judging by these new releases and at least one scheduled 2020 festival tour date, it probably won’t be very long before the next record. For now, grab tickets to their upcoming concerts here.
In honor of “Now I’m In It”, the indie rock trio also jammed Hanson-style in a funny clip.
