White Winter Trees

With more snow on the way here in France, I thought I would share my recent discovery of acoustic folk rock trio The Staves and their latest release "White Winter Trees:

The sisters hail from Watford, so whilst English roses all three, they also have a Joni Mitchell 70's vibe to their sound which is quite unexpected. The animation for "White Winter Trees" is really beautiful and unusual and the song seems to stick with you - I've been humming it for days. Their debut album "The Dead and Born and Grown" is out now. I'm off to snuggle up and watch the snow falling...
