The Folk - Stay

No matter how many songs there are in the world about the hunger of love it seems that there is always room for more. Hertforshire based band The Folk serve up a beautiful song of longing and affairs of the heart called Stay, the follow up to When It Rains. “First thing in the morning, last thing at night, you’re the only thing that’s on my mind,” they sing as the song swells to a captivating chorus. The so-young so-talented rule applies here from a band whose members have only just finished their AS Levels. If new music blogging is the new A&R, spotting young talent at an early stage, then this is one of those moments where we raise our hand.

Since we last wrote about The Folk they’ve slimmed down from a four piece to a core of three consisting of Rose, Lauren and Lucy,(which fits in very neatly with our past theory that 2012 was going to be a good year for women with the initial L - the likes of Lana Del Rey, Lucy Rose, Lianne La Havas, Louise & the Pins, Loui Rose (aka Foxes) and Laurel Arnell-Cullen  having  all lit up our world so far) have been featured on both BBC 6 Music and Amazing Radio, played a slot at The Great Escape’s Alt. Escape in Brighton and are also performing at a number of summer festivals including Lodestar and Standon Calling where they’ll be playing The Folk Tent – nice of the festival to name the stage after them! 

Take a listen to Stay below, it may be pretty but there's a rock solid strength to the music as well. The song is released on the 25th July
