What we said:
Boasting the kind of pillow-soft, angelic voices you might expect to hear in a lullaby, and layered vocal arrangements that nod to harmony groups like Crosby, Stills & Nash, Watford’s Staveley-Taylor sisters could win over the hardest of hearts. On debut album Dead & Born & Grown they sound wise beyond their years, offering up 12 tracks of acoustic-folk rock, imbued with charming lyrical reflections on nature, the quirks of relationships and the inevitable passing of time. Fans of Bon Iver and The Civil Wars – both of whom they’ve opened for – or Laura Marling’s early work, will find a lot to love here.
