Haim Releases New Song & Music Video of ‘Now I’m In It’
Alternative band Haim released their second single this year, “Now I’m In It” on Wednesday (Oct. 30). The newest track plays with both mood and tone, syncopated beats, muted guitar tones and delicate piano work.
In an Instagram caption, they revealed that the song was inspired by their battles with depression.
“Now I’m in it is about going through it,” posted the band. “A depression. Not leaving the house type of sh*t. For my sisters and I, there have been times in our lives where we have felt like we are stuck in a dark hole. This track speaks to that emotion.”
“The track is chaotic- like my mind when I’m spiralling,” Haim added. “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!!)”
Additionally, the sisters have teamed up once again with Paul Thomas Anderson as director for the music video. It shows Danielle Haim working various jobs, being carried around on a stretcher, going through a car wash, and more. Later, the group wistfully sings lyrics, “Took me so long to fall/ Now I’m in it.”
