HAIM Open Up About the Depression That Inspired New Single "Now I'm in It"
In a series of tweets, Danielle Haim explained that the song is about going through depression. She said she and her sisters have experienced times "where we have felt like we are stuck in a dark hole."
Haim went on to explain the track mimics the chaos in her mind when she is spiralling and having difficulty working through those moments.
The middle Haim sister also noted that she has become better at recognizing the symptoms over the years and come to accept that she has to reach out for help when she starts to spiral.
Haim closed with a reminder to talk openly about depression and to "be nice to yourself."

a depression. not leaving the house type of shit. for my sisters and i, there have been times in our lives where we have felt like we are stuck in a dark hole. pic.twitter.com/8oaJfYPYsC
the track is chaotic- like my mind when i'm spiraling. fast-talking to myself- words jumbled up. heartbeat racing. these times are hard to forget and even harder to work through. after being constantly on the go the past couple years, i didn't wanna stop and deal with some shit.— HAIM (@HAIMtheband) October 28, 2019
also every day my sisters and i feel so fucking lucky that we get to do this for a living! it seemed like stopping and dealing with these emotions would be letting everyone down. but every time I've been depressed- it takes me accepting that I need help, to start to get out of it— HAIM (@HAIMtheband) October 28, 2019
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!!)— HAIM (@HAIMtheband) October 28, 2019
anyway, we all know it's important to talk about this stuff. this one poured out of us. take care of yourself
be nice to yourself. and thank the ones around you that help u everyday. hope this helps anyone who is in it right now ❤️ coming Oct 30— HAIM (@HAIMtheband) October 28, 2019
