The Staves - Pay Us No Mind

If we were curating the stage at a music festival The Staves are probably the band we’d choose for the early Sunday afternoon opening slot – that moment when (hopefully) tired punished bodies are basking in the sun, when everyone is beginning to wonder how they’re going to keep going for another day. Their music is just the tonic – soothing, melodious and pretty much perfect.

Last month we featured the title track from the three singing sisters EP Motherlode and today we’re giving you another slice from it. Pay Us No Mind is a gorgeously downbeat tune featuring the bands trademark harmonies. The Staves are here to capture your hearts for sure.

The group are out on tour in the UK right now, after playing SXSW and supporting Michael Kiwanuka earlier this year. They follow that up by supporting Bon Iver stateside before returning to the UK for some festivals including Nova Festival, Deershed Festival and the Cambridge Folk Festival.

The Motherlode EP is out next week.
