The Haim sisters have recently released their highly anticipated sophomore album Something to Tell You and have been just about everywhere to promote the long-awaited follow-up to 2013’s Days Are Gone. The trio performed earlier this year on Saturday Night Live and just hit the stage at Glastonbury.
Prior to releasing their new record on July 7, the sisters gave fans look at their recording process with their video for “Right Now.” Working with famed film director Paul Thomas Anderson, the video was shot in L.A.’s Valentine Recording Studios and gave fans a glimpse into the recording process for Something to Tell You.
Now Danielle, Este and Alana are again showing what they can do in the studio. Stopping by the BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge this week, Haim performed the station’s obligatory cover track, but there was nothing ordinary about it.
The sisters covered Selena Gomez’s latest single “Bad Liar,” putting their own spin on the song, proving that you don’t need expensive musical equipment to make a great cover.
Danielle concocted a makeshift drum set using a mug, two glasses, a pair of coffee canisters, and of course a box of tea. They are in the U.K., afterall. The results are a joyful take on the tongue-in-cheek track, with the household instruments creating a playful backing to the Julia Michaels and Justin Tranter-written tune.
The trio also performed their leading single “Want You Back” from their new album while in the Live Lounge. Just released this month, the sisters returned to their native L.A. for the video, which features them showing off their dance moves on a deserted street.
Haim kick off a short tour in September, which includes one Canadian date in Vancouver at the Malkin Bowl on September 4.
