The Staves - Mexico

Best described as Mumford & Sons meets The Corrs (or just Laura Marling split into three), these three sisters hailing from Watford are poised for big things next year.  Mexico is taken from their upcoming EP entitled...well...'Mexico'.

A simple guitar figure repeats.  Three pure voices waft listlessly over the airwaves in perfect harmony.  It's effortlessly beautiful, stunning audiences into captivated silence.

Then again, it's all rather polite and whimsical.  To quote Peter Robinson, are The Staves just another victim of the New Boring?
