Back in early February of this year, I discovered the sisterly trio, The Staves, who were opening for The Civil Wars. Composed of English sisters Jessica, Emily, and Camilla Stavely-Taylor, The Staves sing a ethereal and harmonious brand of folk music that would put most American folk bands to shame. After listening to Mexico, one of the first songs that they released, I told myself that I will keep an eye out on anything The Staves release.
Nine months later, The Staves are finally releasing their debut record Dead & Born & Grown. Now in a more polished state with a fuller production behind it, the real highlight are still the lovely harmonies produced by the Stavely sisters. This is another fine folk record coming from the other side of the Atlantic.
Check out the Stavely sisters in their Old-Western inspired video, Tongue Behind My Teeth embedded below.
The Staves – Dead & Born & Grown comes out 11/12 via Atlantic (order here)
