The Daily Shuffle #2: The Steals

Huh?
Stay in Silence by The Steals.

Why?
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.

And?
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.

Who cares?
For fans of the music of moody folk urchins. The vocal style and tribal drum beats particularly remind me of the likes of Bayou.
