It was recently revealed that Haim were told by Julian Casblancas to “disappear and come back in a year with better songs”. The Strokes singer gave the sister trio the sound advice when the group opened for him during his solo shows, when Danielle Haim also played in his backing band. Speaking to The Guardian, Danielle said: “Julian told us: disappear, come back in a year with stronger songs and hit the ground running.”

Meanwhile, Haim have been voted the best new festival artist of 2013 by NME readers. The band received the most votes in NME‘s annual poll, narrowly ahead of Disclosure, who came in second. Bastille came third in the poll with Peace and The 1975 rounding off the top five.
