New Releases & Video: The Staves – Tired As Fuck / Train Tracks

After a number of teasers leading up to today, The Staves have unveiled a couple of highly-anticipated new tracks, in the form of Tired As Fuck and Train Tracks

About the new releases, the sisters have said…

Tired As Fuck was a song written in the midst of a relationship breaking down. Lamenting (among other things) the lack of some sort of guidance in that kind of situation, but also accepting and resigning yourself to the fact that you have to soldier on. Keep going. There is no helping hand

Train Tracks is the beginning of something new and how confusing and difficult that can be when you’re really just as clueless as anyone! The two tracks bookend each other in that respect

Take a listen to both tracks below…
