Stream The Staves Sleeping In A Car EP

The Staves are following up their beautiful 2015 LP If I Was with a new three-song EP called Sleeping In A Car, recorded partially in London and partially at Justin Vernon’s studio in Eau Claire, WI. “These songs reflect the transient nature of travelling,” the Staveley-Taylor sisters explain in a press release. “Fleeting moments, like a slide show—reflections in car windows, streetlights passing in rhythm, stolen phone calls, late nights. Feelings of displacement and a disconnect — living in some sort of alternate state of reality. But underneath it all is the feeling of adventure and making your own rules and how dizzying and freeing that can be.” The EP officially comes out next week, but you can hear the whole thing now over on The Current, and check out the Staves’ upcoming North American tour dates below.
