After they released summer smash ‘Summer Girl’ this July, Haim are back with their second new slice of music this year. Revealing ‘Now I’m In It’, having previously teased it as “the most haim haimy haim song ever written”, we can confirm it’s an absolute scorcher of a track, full of delicately layered sounds that perfectly lend themselves to the emotionally core of the song.
Taking to Twitter to explain the track, the group said: “now i’m in it is about going through it. a depression. not leaving the house type of shit. for my sisters and i, there have been times in our lives where we have felt like we are stuck in a dark hole.
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”
