It’s taking the world a while to catch on to The Staves, even though they’ve been together for twenty-odd years, but that’s because they are three sisters. Musically their gestation period has been a little shorter, although they've still been floating around for some time. They recently featured as the Guardian’s New Band of the Day (with a quote from this very blog when we first featured them as a New Wave back in April) and have popped up on a few of the more folk inclined sites over the last few months as well as supporting the likes of James Vincent McMorrow and Willy Mason this autumn, where they have transfixed audiences with their shy, organic songs.
Now here’s a new video for the tune Mexico which first featured in that April post. It utterly suits the band’s music - being both simple and magical. Are you ready to fall in love with the gentle and wistful sounds of Emily, Jessica and Camilla? We have.
