From Glastonbury to the Governor’s Ball, when it comes to performing live music in front of giant crowds, nobody pulls off the bass face quite like Este Haim. Her signature preparing-to-eat-a-5-pound-burrito howl and her my-legs-are-being-gnawed-off-by-wild-coyotes bottom tooth snarl have entertained legions of fans worldwide since HAIM hit it big back in 2013.

It’s been two years since the band’s sophomore album, Something To Tell You, left us tapping our toes in dazed reverie, but recent remarks on social media indicate the band is planning to release a new album this summer, which means a world tour would follow their headlining set at Pitchfork Music Festival and more intense facial contortions from Haim’s low-end lady are in store. In the meantime, here are some golden moments from Este’s legendary (#enormous) catalog of devil-may-care bass faces. Warning: children under the age of 13 must be accompanied by an adult.
