Haim Tackle Depression On New Single Now I'm In It

Thursday, 31 October 2019 Written by Helen Payne

Haim have released a new single.

Now I’m In It, the latest from the indie-pop sisters since August’s seasonal Summer Girl, features the delightfully vibrant lead vocals from Danielle Haim, a contrast to the itchy, repetitive rhythms underneath that symbolise the spiralling chaos of depression.

Its video, directed by frequent collaborator Paul Thomas Anderson, tackles the theme by eliciting a feeling of not wanting to leave the house, the world taking over when you do, and keeping up appearances for other people’s sake. Watch below.

Continuing to discuss the song via Twitter, the band said:

"the track is chaotic- like my mind when i’m spiraling. fast-talking to myself- words jumbled up. heartbeat racing. these times are hard to forget and even harder to work through. after being constantly on the go the past couple years, i didn’t wanna stop and deal with some shit.

also every day my sisters and i feel so fucking lucky that we get to do this for a living! it seemed like stopping and dealing with these emotions would be letting everyone down. but every time I’ve been depressed- it takes me accepting that I need help, to start to get out of it.

it’s gotten a little easier as i have gotten older to recognize the symptoms and remind myself that when this happens, i need to seek help. (shout out to my therapist!!)  anyway, we all know it’s important to talk about this stuff. this one poured out of us. take care of yourself.

be nice to yourself. and thank the ones around you that help u everyday. hope this helps anyone who is in it right now."

The trio’s last full-length offering was 2017’s 'Something To Tell You'.
