HAIM recently reflected on their early days in London during an interview with NME ahead of their APE gig later this month. The interview came as the Los Angeles sister trio announced the 10th anniversary reissue of their debut album, “Days Are Gone.”
“The first time I went to the UK was when we got signed,” recalls Alana Haim, “so you’d write those songs in your living room in the Valley, and then travel to London and people who know your lyrics it was the craziest feeling.”
He said: “The British accent.”
