Southern California’s favorite sisters Haim have been touring nonstop since the release of their full-length album Days Are Gone and sat down to talk with The Daily Beast about the one thing they hate being labelled as:
Este: I’d even hear from dudes that were just like, “Yeah, women can play music, but it’s not rock music. There’s a place for women in music, but it’s not in the rock world.”
I just never understood, like, you would never call a band like The Killers a boy band. So why are we a girl band? You know? We’re a band.
Watch any live show the sisters put on and you’ll see just how hard they rock. With electrifying guitar and drum solos, Haim and so many other contemporary bands are proving rock isn’t only a “man’s world.” See for yourself when they take on FYF Fest this August.
