If you haven’t heard The Staves but you love British folk rock, you’ve really been missing a treat. Watch the video below of The Staves singing ‘White Winter Trees‘ — pretty, isn’t it?
Don’t miss The Staves song ‘Behind My Teeth’ either — you can listen to that on the SoundCloud thingyamyjiggy below the video. And you can find out more about The Staves at their website, as well as order their upcoming new album ‘If I Was‘.
