It seems remarkable that a band like The Staves, who only a few months ago were playing tiny gigs in café and bar size venues are now gearing up to play Wembley Arena. Ok, that last sentence whilst true doesn’t paint the whole picture, but it’s still pretty odd. For The Staves will be at a number of enormo-domes / warehouse sized venues in the UK this November supporting Bon Iver before they head out on their own somewhat more intimate tour in support of their forthcoming album Dead & Born & Grown, which finally will see the light of day on November 12th.
Whatever size or shape of building they play though, you can expect perfect harmonies, a real sense of warmth in their acoustic music and even the odd f-word now and then (they are after all Watford girls). However, irrespective of their origins, The Staves songs ooze class, like this track Tongue Behind My Teeth which was released to the internet yesterday. The video may look like it was shot in the wild west, but we hear rumours that it was actually filmed in Spain, but shhh we didn’t tell you that.
