Video of the Moment #1824 (and more!): The Staves

By on Friday, 12th June 2015 at 6:00 pm

A definite highlight of my trip to Dublin last month was seeing the Staveley-Taylor sisters, better known by their stage name The Staves, live at the famed Olympia. (You can read my account of the night here.) One of the most heart-meltingly, achingly beautiful moments of the show for me was their performance of ‘Teeth White’, which up to that point I’d never heard, as I hadn’t had time to properly listen to their new album ‘If I Was’. The story of the song? Being a woman and doing all the right things, having pearly white teeth and wearing tight jeans, or so you think, and still ending up lonely. Strikes a chord to the lovelorn, doesn’t it?

According to Stereogum, this video was filmed by the La Blogotheque crew. So it’s not a too far stretch of the imagination that they probably did this one with the Paris Web site around the same time of their recording live versions of ‘Black and White’ and ‘Teeth White’, which appeared online in March. In case you missed that earlier video, I’ve also embedded it below for your watching and listening enjoyment.
