HAIM Is Seriously Going Through It On “Now I’m In It”
HAIM is slowly getting back into the rhythm of releasing new music. Back in July the trio relaunched with “Summer Girl.” Their first single since 2017’s Something To Tell You boasts a loose, jazzy arrangement and warm messaging. And that was just the start of things. Since then they’ve linked up with Charli XCX on her fluttery anthem “Warm.” And today (October 30) the Haim sisters are back with “Now I’m In It.” Produced by Rostam Batmanglij and Ariel Rechtshaid, the track may initially read as being about a breakup. But in an interview with The Guardian, Danielle Haim made it clear that it was something quite different.
“People think ‘Now I’m in It’ is a break-up song because I sing: ‘We can’t be friends,’” she said. “But I’m talking about me and my mind. It was gnarly and I was not OK with myself.” She shared more with Stereogum. “[“Now I’m In It”] is about going through it. a depression. not leaving the house type of shit.” That interpretation comes across as the hitmakers deliver honest lyrics over the lush soundscape. “Looking in the mirror again and again. Wishing the reflection would tell me something,” she sings. “I, I can’t get a hold of myself. I can’t get outta this situation.” Everything builds up to the chorus. “‘Cause now I’m in it. But I’ve been trying to find my way back for a minute.”
