Haim are worried about getting some rude-shaped awards they’ve received through customs.

The group, made up of sisters Este, Danielle and Alana and Dash Hutton, won Best International Band at Wednesday night's annual NME awards.

The gongs are shaped like a hand holding its middle finger up and are proving to be a tricky situation for the band.

"These trophies are awesome, but how are we going to get them through customs?" Este laughed to British newspaper The Daily Star. “Even if we put them in the hold, they look somewhat dubious.

"My parents are going to love this award. I wish they were here, because they’d love these awards – and my mom would totally rule the show.”

The group smashed on to the music scene with their debut album Days Are Gone last year.

After a successful 2013, which saw them play at annual UK music festival Glastonbury, they are on course for a mammoth year.

They were elated with their NME win, and decided to dedicate it to anyone who had ever doubted their abilities.

"This award goes straight to everyone who’s ever f**ked with us. That’s a long list," Este exclaimed.

“This is the first awards ceremony we’ve ever been to, and look what we’ve won. It’s insane.”

Not content with one award, youngest sister Alana also bagged the prize for Best Musicians' Twitter, for her online rants, and witty posts.

“I wanted to win Best Twitter so bad, it probably means more than the band trophy.

“I was trying to think of cool tweets for the past couple of weeks, to influence voters," Alana smiled.

After the awards Alana didn't let her loyal followers down, and posted a series of tweets that demonstrated why she won the award.

"Just realized I didn't get to eat pizza last night.


"Aaaaaaannnnnddd now you all know I'm hungover (sic)," she informed fans.
