The three sisters from LA have opened for their friend, Taylor Swift, was nominated for best new artist at the 2015 Grammy’s. The song, like the title suggests, expresses the regret of ruining a relationship, and wanting that person back after it is over. Though the song is essentially apologizing and begging, it remains upbeat and more pop sounding than other songs of theirs. Haim’s music is heavily influenced by artists such as Tom Petty and Fleetwood Mac. The girls and their fans are excited for the album to drop after an almost three-year hiatus since their first LP.
