Californian pop trio HAIM have been extremely busy since their debut album ‘Days Are Gone’ dropped late last year. Literally swept off their feet with live endeavours and all the fun stuff that comes with touring the globe. We always knew that HAIM were set for hugeness and their new video only acts to fortify our beliefs. 
 
The new offering is a pretty excellent remix of original album track ‘My Song 5’. It certainly represents a new twist on the classic HAIM sound; the trademark indie-pop sensibilities are still apparent throughout, however, the addition of a darker and moodier undertone certainly make it a refreshing listen for all you HAIM fans out there. Featuring the infamous NYC rapper A$AP Ferg to add that extra level of smut to proceedings, the track (and extremely entertaining video) acts as a tidy reminder that the best is yet to come from the sisterly trio.
 
Track of the Day - HAIM ‘My Song 5 ft. A$AP Ferg’
The video sees the HAIM sisters parody the classic and all-American chat show format. Aside from starring themselves, there are all-star guests featuring throughout as chat show subjects (see above). Aside from Saturday Night Live comedian Vanessa Bayer taking the lead as chat show host ‘Dallas Murphy’, A$AP Ferg makes an appearance as a guy whose girlfriend is deserting him for a woman, Grimes can be spotted in the green room, whereas pop star Ke$ha makes an appearance as a lady who has fallen for her cat. 
 
Madness we say! Good madness though…
 
What does this mean for a new HAIM album? Well, seeing how busy the girls have been touring we are a little worried about how good their new material will be. You know the dreaded ‘writing while on tour’ trap? So many bands fall into it and yet HAIM have been doing exactly that. Speaking before their show at Glastonbury back in June, the trio announced that they were set to start recording album number two in July which could mean a new project before the close of 2014. We shall keep you guys updated on proceedings. In the meantime  ‘My Song 5 ft. A$AP Ferg’ is a tidy reminder of just how exciting they can be…
