I saw Haim for the first time when they played the Treasure Island Music Festival last month.
I hadn’t heard the slick soul-pop of their recordings which was good because they don’t match this rock quartet live. Yeah, I did say rock quartet ’cause Haim has gone rock in a serious way.
This “Saturday Night Live” performance gives you sense of what they deliver live.
Danielle Haim — she’s in the middle with the cool red SG guitar — has a distinctive, compelling way of singing, you can really hear during this performance of “The Wire.”
Here they are on SNL performing “Don’t Save Me.”
