WATCH: The Staves 'Blood I Bled' for The Mahogany Sessions


This band of 'acoustic folk-rock' performing sisters, The Staves, were one of my favourite discoveries of this year's Bushstock Festival, where they rounded off an afternoon of secret sets by Alex Vargas and Nick Mulvey in a Shepherd's Bush wine bar. I was really impressed by their beautiful harmonies and the quiet, honest nature of their music. Of their latest record, If I Was, which I soon got my hands on, this track is one of my favourites. The record was produced by Justin Vernon who made a guest appearance at the band's Glastonbury set (following guesting at Kanye's set the night before!), which I streamed at home and loved seeing that they could perform so well to a large crowd too after seeing them perform in such an intimate setting. With a support slot on the upcoming Florence & The Machine UK tour and countless festival appearances over summer the girls are certainly bringing folk to the masses!
