Haim insist they haven't changed since finding fame and Este secretly wanted to be a circus performer growing up

Haim insist they haven't changed since finding fame.

The 'Falling' hitmakers - made up of sisters Alana, Este and Danielle Haim - claim they act no different from when they were an unknown band living in California.

Alana told BANG Showbiz: "We're the same three girls from The Valleys that we've always been, we don't even think we've had the success that we want yet.

"We are going to keep going, keep making music and we're never going to stop!"

Este quipped: "Just wait til you meet my grandpa, then you will understand where we come from!"

Asked if they think success will affect their song-writing, Alana replied: "We'll see what happens, we write the best when we're all together at home, but we're starting to write on the road. It's a new experience but we're up for trying new experiences but it's rad."

The band won two awards at the NME Awards on Wednesday (26.02.14) for Best International Band and Best Band Blog or Twitter, and say even if they hadn't have found success in music, they have plenty of other talents.

Alana revealed she's good at nail art, while Este secretly wanted to become a circus performer after learning how to ride a unicycle.

Speaking before the ceremony, Este said: "Basically, when I was younger I wanted to be a part of Cirqu Du Soleil. The night is young if someone had a unicycle here I'd get on it."
