The Staves - Dead & Born & Grown Album Review


Fresh from supporting Bon Iver in the States, Watford's The Staves have released their anticipated debut record Dead & Born & Grown on Atlantic. It's a notable album, not least because it delivers on the promise of their 4 previous EPs alongside their work with Tom Jones and Fionn Regan. However, the trio of sisters have also pulled off a major coup by securing the services of Glyn and Ethan Johns. Amazingly, this is the first album they've co-produced despite a bursting back catalogue of landmark records between them.

The Staves - Dead & Born & Grown Album Review

It's that combined experience that works to The Staves' benefit. Opener 'Wisely & Slow' waits over a minute to introduce any instrumentation. Instead, the sisters' voices take centre stage with a series of warm harmonies. It's a brave move by the production team, but one that pays off. It focuses the sadness and nostalgia that drips from every word. Neither is this approach a gimmick as an introduction to the Staveley-Taylor's. It grabs your attention, but also prepares you for what's to follow.

In many ways Dead & Born & Grown is a very traditional folk album. It doesn't try to break new ground, choosing instead to adopt an air of familiarity. While that's a safe option, it's not hugely detrimental, allowing the trio an opportunity to run through their uncomplicated and mellow compositions with an effortless charm. The first sign of real heartbreak underpinning some of the material is during the booze soaked 'Pay Us No Mind' ("Drink until your lips are black, you've given things you'll never get back, oh you silly thing.") and it's once you start digging beyond the pretty veneer of The Staves' harmonies that you find a real depth to the record.

The Staves, The Motherlode EP Review


The Corrs sister they are not, but the sibling threesome that make up The Staves look to take the music world by storm with their own bewitchingly beautiful country/folk sound. The Watford-born sisters look to add to their already impressive r'sum' with the release of debut EP The Motherlode having already wowed audiences across the Atlantic and up and down the country alongside the likes of Mumford and Sons and Michael Kiwanuka and whilst spelling clearing isn't one of their strong points, crafting beautiful songs clearly is.
