HAIM Singer’s ‘Bass Face’ Has Glastonbury Viewers In Stitches

HAIM Singer’s ‘Bass Face’ Has Glastonbury Viewers In Stitches

A HAIM singer has got Glastonbury viewers in stitches after showcasing her infamous 'bass face'. Watch below:


Bass guitarist and singer Este Haim is known for pulling Phil Jones-esque faces when she's slapping the bass.

Some viewers were witnessing it for the first time during their Glasto set – and they were absolutely loving it.

Taking to social media, one person wrote: "The quality of Este Haim's bass face cannot be overstated. #Glastonbury."

Another added: "Nothing is more entertaining than watching a guitarist's face while they play."

A third commented: "I saw this she was scaring me lmao."

Many fans were yet again in awe of the bass player.

One wrote: "Este Haim is still the queen of bass face," while another added: "The Iconic Bass Face has returned to haunt our dreams."

However, in 2019, the now 36-year-old argued that the bass face meme was sexist.

She told NME: “I get ‘I love that you don’t care what you look like when you play. I love that you don’t care what your face looks like when you play. I love that about you'. 

“God, thank you so much,” she added sarcastically. “Like, f**k you.” 

The singer said: "That’s like a veiled way of saying you’re ugly or something.

"They wouldn’t say it to a dude, who’s feeling the music when he’s playing. Like, ‘You look ugly when you play’. You’d never say it to John Mayer when he’s like 'bleugh' when he’s playing, you know what I mean?"

She continued: "People always ask us when we’re going to have kids – 'When are you going to have kids and settle down?’ For men it’s the opposite, it’s like, ‘Don’t settle down man. Life on the road, with all the women’. 

But for us it’s like, ‘you’re 33, when are you gonna, like, have kids? Tick tock, tick tock'."

Fellow band member Alana added: "For the longest time, there wasn’t a conversation about this.

"For ages, I was scared to say anything because people would just be like, ‘Come on, have a stiff upper lip, it’s fine’ and now it’s nice to feel like if I say ‘Hey, that’s f**ked up’ there are so many women in music who would be like, ‘Yeah man, that happened to me’ and just that sentence – ‘That sucks and that happened to me as well’ – makes you not feel alone.”
