The ladies of HAIM are back in it…
The sister trio have shared their new single “Now I’m In It” along with its accompanying music video – their second release of 2019 following “Summer Girl” back in July.
The buoyant, guitar-laced Ariel Rechtshaid & Rostam-production addresses the band’s experiences in battling depression. “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,” Danielle Haim wrote in a statement.
“The track is chaotic – like my mind when I’m spiraling. Fast-talking to myself – words jumbled up. Heartbeat racing,” Haim continued. “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.”
Like most of HAIM‘s sun-soaked numbers, the track is effusive and earnest and optimistic. They excel equally well even in the face of some sadness.
