Days Are Gone Haim Columbia/Polydor 2013
In the 11-track debut album, Days Are Gone, sisters, Este, Alana, and Danielle, give listeners a taste of their California, indie-pop/rock sound. What I love most about this album is the combination of musical influences from so many different genres and eras, while still maintaining a distinct style of its own. Days Are Gone has been described as a mix of 70’s and 80’s soft rock, with a hint of 90’s R&B. With comparisons made to Fleetwood Mac, Prince, Joni Mitchel, and even Michael Jackson, Haim has the versatility to incorporate almost any artists’ sound into their music. Another impressive aspect of the band is that all three of the girls play their own instruments, write their own songs, and sing their own harmonies – a rare find in the music world today.

All I heard was a deafening silence. My heart pounded in my chest as if it was hammering its way out. All of my nerves felt numb, and my feet were glued to the ground. I tried to clench my shaking fist but it was no use. I began breathing fast and shallow through my parted lips, and a bead of sweat trickled down the side of my forehead.
I ignored all of the people that were looking at me. I ignored their alarmed expressions, their gasping mouths that seemed to shout something to me.
I also ignored the speeding car heading straight towards me.
