Haim Album Review Something To Tell You
When I saw this trio perform “Little Bit of Your Love” on Saturday Night Live, I was instantly enamored with Este’s bass face. Seriously, Google it, watch it, appreciate it, know & love it- it’s stellar.
‘Cause I got something to tell you/ but I don’t know why/ It’s so hard to let you know that we’re not seeing eye to eye/ Because I know if I tell you that everything’s alright/ Oh, we could stay in this moment, I’d never say goodbye
“Night So Long” is a bit melancholy, but damn, does Danielle’s voice soar. It’s enchanting.
Then I say goodbye to love once more/ No shadow darkening the door/ Until your memory is gone/ The night, slow, long
Gave you my love, thought I could trust you/ You let me down at every turn/ You had me hanging on a dream you never believed/ You gave me your word
I promise I’ll treat you right/ Been waiting my whole damn life/ Baby, it’s about time/ I wasn’t ready for you
“Kept Me Crying” Another upbeat song with the hell of a guitar solo. This song is real & sad. A girl waiting around for the drunk text from her ex. She doesn’t want to, but she does it anyway. Like I said, sad, but real.
I was your lover/ I was your friend/ and now I’m only just someone you call/ when it’s late enough to forget
I’ll take the fall and the fault in us/ I’ll give you all the love I never gave before I left you/ Just know that I want you back
I need to hear you say it/ Was my love too much for you to take?/ I guess you never knew what was good for you
“Walking Away” displays some breathy vocals with a nice beat & a solid 90’s R&B girl group flavor. Obviously, I’m Into it & my favorite part is when they repeat “say something, say something, say something”. This song is so smooth it’s hard to forget this song is about a girl giving her POS guy the finger and she’s leaving his ass.
Away, I’m not gonna wait/ Nothing you could say that’ll make me rethink/ Every chance that we had and messed up/ All the times it got away from us
Buy this album, my friends, because I want to listen to it together and talk about it! One of the reasons I love this group is because I think if I met Haim, we would be Into the same stuff. I mean, they would rather have a pizza party in their tour bus than go clubbing. That’s my kind of folk right there. What’s your favorite album or group at the moment?
