HAIM keep on walking with new song and video ‘Summer Girl’

HAIM has returned with sunny new song ‘Summer Girl’. The track is the LA band’s first release since 2017’s Something To Tell You.

‘Summer Girl’ is a characteristically upbeat HAIM song with smooth jazz touches bouncing around their laidback, stylish indie-pop. ‘Doo-doos’ and mellow saxophone riffs dance around a breezy rhythm and the trio’s typically buttery vocals.

Whilst it’s definitely a song for kicking back on summer evenings, ‘Summer Girl’ has a deeply personal origin. “I started the song when I found out my partner had cancer. I was on tour and felt like I was trying to send positive energy his way almost telepathically.” says Danielle Haim. “Whenever I would come home in between shows I wanted to be his sunshine – his summer when he was feeling dark. His hope when he was feeling hopeless”.
