The sisters Haim are everywhere you look these days. Their solid debut Days Are Gone came out in October 2013 but the band has never been more prominent than now. After showing up on Taylor Swift's Instagram as her self-described "squad," the trio announced they'd be joining her 1989 tour this summer. Then, the sisters demonstrated their swag at the Grammy's before harmonizing as a party of the Jimmy-Kimmel-arranged supergroup Morris Day and the Haim. Their back again with the video for "Pray to God," one of the best cuts off Calvin Harris's most recent album Motion.
The girls are a vision in black, with dark makeup and chokers on Este and Alana. Meanwhile Danielle shows the camera a heartbroken mean mug as she sings lyrics like "I thought the end of a love is what made you strong." They start in a wintry mountainous setting where Alana protects a white rabbit from a lingering wolf and transition to a forested area in which Danielle scares off lions and bears and Calvin Harris beat pumps in the background. The video ends with clips of a black stallion rearing and the girls atop white horses. Also, there's some Este dancing in there somewhere. It's a pretty weird video but kind of cool and the song makes it worth a view. Check it for yourself below.
