Taken from Haim's 2013 debut long player Days Are Gone, the track "If I Could Change Your Mind" has been followed up with an 80s aesthetic music video. Consistent with the 80s feel, it's lo-fi and a touch corny, but very well choreographed. View it below:

Mojo to burn; Los Tones is already made up of members of La Mancha Negra, Glitter Canyon and Mother and Son, and now with added Haint, that makes The Sonic Heartbreakers a super super group... if super groups can be made up of rad obscure bands you haven’t heard of. We’ll I think they’re super anyway, and not just because they didn't beat me when I taxed their rider, I think they’re super because they make me wanna dance.
