With just weeks to go until the release of second album ‘Something To Tell You’, Haim are chomping at the bit to air brand new cuts during their Other Stage set, which has the job of bringing in the evening. ‘Want You Back’, ‘Right Now’ and ‘Little of Your Love’ are all present and correct, and remarkably - considering the latter aired just last week - they’re already fully embedded anthems. The band are clearly glad to be back here, too - as Alana points out, it’s their third time at the festival. “And it’s as sexy as ever!” Este adds with glee.
It’s during the likes of their debut’s classic cuts ‘Forever’ and ‘Falling’ though, that things really take a turn for the loopy. Leading to an all-out danceathon, Este Haim refuses to move until the crowd do; and luckily they duly oblige. Meanwhile, Alana takes a lap of honour across the front row watched by a cackling Danielle.
Injecting Glastonbury with a much-needed dose of the Californian sunshine they know so well, by playing to endless blue skies, it’s good to have Haim back on the festival circuit.
