HAIM appeared on the latest episode of Hrishikesh Hirway’s Song Exploder podcast. The Los Angeles band was joined by producers Ariel Rechtshaid and Rostam to discuss the genesis of their 2019 single “Summer Girl,” from last year’s Women in Music Pt. III. Listen to the full episode below.
In the episode, the sisters talk about how Rechtshaid’s cancer diagnosis informed the songwriting, referencing Lou Reed’s “Walk on the Wild Side,” trying to get Bono to sing on the track, and more.
Women in Music Pt. III is up for the 2021 Grammy Award for Album of the Year. HAIM were also nominated for Best Rock Performance for “The Steps.” Last month, the group shared a remix of “3AM” by Toro y Moi.
