Prime Minister David Cameron has tweeted about Haim after meeting the band during a BBC TV appearance (September 29).

Haim's bass player Este cheekily dedicated their performance of 'The Wire' to David Cameron as they played on the show. At the end of the song, she pointed at the Prime Minister saying, "That was for you DC, it's all about you."

They were all guests on BBC1's Sunday morning politics programme The Andrew Marr Show.

Following their appearance, David Cameron tweeted: "Great to meet @HAIMtheband on Marr - looking forward to listening to the album they gave me."

Haim also tweeted saying: "About to be on ?#marrshow? on bbc1! Este's about to talk to the Prime Minister... Oh no."

The programme, which has seen musical guests like Snow Patrol and PJ Harvey in the past, often concludes with a band playing new material.

The Californian three-piece release their debut album 'Days Are Gone' on Monday September 30.
