We first posted about them for our Popforward feature in 2011, and since then The Staves have gone on to release a sublime folk album entitled “Dead & Born & Grown”.

If you happen to live in Oregon and are a fan of the band, today’s your lucky day!

In the meantime, check out the video for their beautiful new single “Facing West” below.
Pictured above are the three sisters from Watford, collectively known as The Staves. This British trio should soon be on every folk-pop fan’s lips with their debut album scheduled for release next year. If you like the likes of Laura Marling, The Pierces, Birdy etc., then their new single “Mexico” will most certainly appeal to you. Basked in a warm glow of harmonies, the song is a thing of understated beauty. The melodies tread lightly and unobtrusively, yet they draw my full attention and reduce me to silence every time. There’s not necessarily new ground to break, just beautifully crafted mellow music for your listening pleasure.
Watch the music video for the track below, and keep in mind that all the effects were achieved in camera!
