3 things you didn’t know about HAIM.
It’s not only Licorice Pizza that delights us with a great dose of nostalgia.
Alana Haim, far more than the ultimate star of Paul Thomas Anderson’s Oscar nominee, alongside her sisters has conquered the music world with their very genuine expression.
Being the true embodiment of Los Angeles, the HAIM girls are aesthetic statements for themselves, with references straight back to their upbringing found in every outfit spotted.
So here are 3 things you should know about the most nominated actress of the award season and her sisters, Este & Danielle.
1. Alana & Co rule when it comes to genderless style.
Having embraced slouchy silhouettes, Alana is frequently spotted wearing classic suits made of timeless materials, almost always combined with boots. The same applies to the rest of the HAIM band, who are seen with fits that happen to match on a constant basis.
When together, be it wearing retro shapes, tons of leather jackets, coats, or mini skirts, they look as if they came right out of a YA movie about a garage band — which is pretty much who they really are, except they rule the whole world.
2. HAIM is not their only family project.
You already know that the band is a family thing since Rockinhaim time, right? With all of them on vocals, specially Danielle, and Este on the bass, the repercussion of their three albums doesn’t let us lie about the success they’ve achieved.
But what the also LA-born and raised director PTA has prepared for them puts Licorice Pizza at the same place. Besides having Alana as the protagonist of the movie with Cooper Hoffman, the other girls are also her sisters on screens. Not enough? So know that her parents are in it too, along with Bradley Cooper.
3. They can’t seem to leave LA and here’s why.
The buzz around the film and its ode to the ‘70s LA is already enough proof of how the HAIM sisters are really connected to the City of Angels. But it doesn’t stop there. The video for their latest single, directed by, yes, PTA again, brings them back to the San Fernando Valley, where all of them grew up, and also the setting for Licorice Pizza and many of the director's other productions.
That homesick feeling plus on-point style choices once seen on Want You Back are the same concepts Lost Track was built on — a real love letter to an era.
