New Music: The Staves - Tired As Fuck (Video)
I’ve always liked the fact that despite the musical beauty of The Staves, their language is occasionally potty mouthed on stage in between songs and now, in the song itself. Tired As Fuck was written during the course of a relationship breakdown and deals with how, as with the rest of the crap life tends to throw at you, sometimes you just have to carry on irrespective of the lack of help. It's a classic British problem in particular. When someone asks you how you are, we tend to answer with "I'm fine," even if we're not.
The unedited video that promotes the song was inspired by Andy Warhol’s work and a series of moving portraits.
