Danielle Haim, Este Haim, and Alana Haim of Haim attend the 2017 CFDA Fashion Awards at Hammerstein Ballroom on June 5, 2017 in New York City.
HAIM’s infectious pop-rock sound takes you back to the ‘70s, so in the band’s recent trip to BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge, it only made sense that they would cover Selena Gomez’s hit “Bad Liar,” which features a sample of Talking Heads 1977 classic "Psycho Killer."

As the band is busy promoting their new album Something to Tell You, on Tuesday (July 11) they stopped by BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge for a performance, playing a killer rendition of “Bad Liar," as well as their own song “Want You Back.”

In their cover, HAIM makes the song sound like one of their own as their signature light vocals transform the track and they perform it using a wild, makeshift set of percussion that includes a box of tea, two coffee canisters, two glasses, and a mug.

Watch a clip of their cover of "Bad Liar" below and listen to their full visit here, starting at 2:06:15.
