The three HAIM sisters were the big backstage celebrities at the Pitchfork Music Festival the weekend before last. (There’s one every year; Julia Stiles is still probably the best one.) HAIM were in Chicago to open for Taylor Swift at Soldier Field, and they spent pretty much all of Friday at the festival, watching Tobias Jesso, Jr. and Chvrches from the side of the stage. As Pitchfork points out, the Talkhouse’s Elia Einhorn managed to snag a quick podcast interview with HAIM and Chvrches singer Lauren Mayberry, though Einhorn did not actually get a single word in edgewise. Mayberry and the Haim sisters are old friends and tourmates, so the whole podcast is just the four of them fucking around together and enjoying each other’s company. Listen to it below.
Chvrches, it’s worth noting, were fucking great at the festival.
