Charted: 75

Songfacts®:

  • This song about a relationship hurtling towards disintegration was originally the title track of Haim's debut EP, and was the song that got the world all excited about the three sisters in the first place. Released as their debut single, it peaked at #75 on the UK singles chart.
  • Este Haim commented to VH1 just before the release of Days Are Gone: "Listening back to that song, it's the first time we heard a song we recorded and didn't cringe. At the time, we had recorded a million songs and hated all of them. This was the first time we recorded something that we were really proud of."
  • This was produced by Ludwig Göransson, a Swedish composer who has helmed the music for the US TV sitcoms Community, Happy Endings, and New Girl, as well as the film Fruitvale Station. Göransson manned the boards on Haim debut EP and helped establish the band with a brand new sound on this song.
  • This achieved its peak position on Billboard's Hot Rock Songs chart (#24) after appearing in a March 2014 Target swimsuit commercial.
