News & Reviews

  • The Staves got together to perform some songs from the kitchen for an Instagram Live session on Sunday—from an early song, "Icarus," to their latest, "Nazareth," released last week, as well as "Make It Holy," from their 2015 debut album, If I Was, and more. You can watch it again here.

  • The Staves have released "Nazareth," the band’s first new music since its 2017 EP with yMusic. "We recorded 'Nazareth' in one take on a field recorder sat outside the studio in the summer of 2018," says the trio. "The sun was shining and the birds were singing. We tried recording it in the studio but just kept coming back to this version. It seemed to have the magic.  The song was intended to be in the spirit of an Irish blessing or a kind of a prayer, asking to be kept safe—but it pretty quickly became a more personal and introspective lyric. Moments of glory quickly faded. Worrying, trying. How we mean everything and nothing at the same time. To everyone, to no one."
