The Staves – “Make It Holy” (Feat. Justin Vernon) Video (Stereogum Premiere)
The Staves officially release their sophomore album If I Was today in the U.S., and it’s one of my absolute favorite albums to come out this year. The Stavely-Taylor sisters worked extensively with Justin Vernon on the record, and he even contributed to a few songs on the album, including “Make It Holy.” UK’s LoveLive TV recorded a performance at the London venue the Wilton in which Vernon joined the sisters for a rendition of the track, and we’re premiering the video today. There’s an uncanny chemistry between the sisters themselves, but Vernon also fits into their musical flow like he’s known them forever. Watch it below.
