The Daily Shuffle #2: The Steals
Stay in Silence by The Steals.
I received their (debut?) album Static Kingdom as a free surprise gift (not sure if it was intentional) when I bought another CD from Amazon.
Stay in Silence is a haunting folk tapestry of sombre, ritualistic drum beats, shimmering guitars and melancholic female vocals which climbs towards a crescendo of glistening chimes, earthy guitars and crashing cymbals, before trailing away into a stream of reverberating string melodies.
For fans of the music of moody folk urchins. The vocal style and tribal drum beats particularly remind me of the likes of Bayou.
