Lorde and HAIM covering Sheryl Crow’s “Strong Enough” off her 1993 album, Tuesday Night Music Club, is exactly what the Spice Girls meant when they preached the gospel of girl power.
“We think it’s our mom buying all the tickets to our shows,” Este, the eldest, said. “And then distributing them to all our friends.”
Though HAIM shy away from calling themselves role models, they hope they encourage some other little girls to go out and rock. Preferably sisters.
Drummers, trumpet players, guitar heroines – the current class of women in rock go far beyond the traditional sexy lead singer role, although there are a few of those, too.
