Haim: 'We're not going to let anyone get in our way'

So rather than plunder their A-list contacts for ‘Something To Tell You’ (“We’re always open to collaborations but we wanted to keep this contained”), Haim retreated to their parents’ living room where their debut was written – the same house where they started as kids in their folks’ cover band Rockinhaim – to kick around ideas for the follow-up. Considering what happened during its creation, the fact it sounds similar to ‘Days Are Gone’ (glossy hook-heavy pop songs, but with lyrics that deal with the shrapnel of broken relationships) is perhaps reassuring.

Yet you need only look at the screen lock on Este’s phone – a photo of her sharing a stage with Prince at Saturday Night Live’s 40th anniversary celebrations in 2015 – to see how much has changed for the band. “Her face is, like, living!” says Alana. Haim were onstage, poised to play a song, when rumours circulated that the purple loin king was in the building. She starts to reminisce. “The seas literally parted and he just…” Este picks up the conversation: “…glided, like, floated onto the stage. After he started playing ‘Let’s Go Crazy’ [to which she provided shell-shocked backing vocals] I cannot tell you what happened because I blacked out.”
