Wooded English Harmony: The Staves
Three sisters from Watford, England harmonize with a beauty and composition not seen since Mountain Man‘s solitary release in 2010.
Startlingly simple and naturally tuned (being blood related probably helps this), critics praise the Staveley-Taylor sisters for reaching to Crosby, Stills & Nash and Simon & Garfunkel for au-natural folk inspiration amidst an auto-tuned era. They toured with Bon Iver in 2012 and very likely might climb the charts this year with fellow international English talents Mumford and Sons and Laura Marling.
Music wouldn’t be as beautiful if it didn’t often carry with it deep sadness, nostalgic introspect, sounds of longing or regret. Learning to hear beauty form out of melancholy expression is the best thing you can do for yourself, your ears, your heart and your future therapies.
