The Staves – Tongue Behind My Teeth Video
Published on September 17th, 2012 | by News Desk
As The Staves prepare to release their debut album in November, they have just unveiled a brand new video for one of the tracks: Tongue Behind My Teeth.
“I think being sung to is the nicest thing in the world. There’s nothing more comforting or enjoyable.” Emily Staveley-Taylor, eldest of the three sisters who comprise The Staves, is attempting to distil the band’s appeal. “And I would hope,” she adds gently, “that this is what people feel when they hear us sing.”
The Staves’ songwriting is as striking as it is exquisite, a melding of still, bright English folk and sublime West Coast pop that, performed live, is capable of plunging an audience into awed silence. Such are those mesmerising harmonies, that renowned producers Glyn and Ethan Johns (whose combined credits include the likes of The Rolling Stones, The Eagles, Joan Armatrading, Ryan Adams, Ray LaMontagne, Kings of Leon, and Laura Marling to name but a few) found The Staves’ talents so compelling that they both independently tracked the band down. ‘Dead & Born & Grown’ will be the first record on which father and son have shared production credits.
The Staves release their debut album, ‘Dead & Born & Grown’ on the 12th November and their new single Tongue Behind My Teeth on 5th November 2012.
