Emily (vocals, synths), Jessica (vocals, guitar, keyboards), and Camilla (vocals, guitar, ukulele) Staveley Taylor released their first full length album Dead & Born & Grown produced by Glyn and Ethan Johns, in 2012. The band spent much of the next three years touring the world, including opening spots with Florence + The Machine, The Civil Wars, Ben Howard and Bon Iver. During the Bon Iver run, the sisters formed a bond with Justin Vernon, who invited them to visit his April Base studio, where he ultimately produced their critically acclaimed second album, 2015's If I Was. After relocating to Minneapolis in 2016 and the release of the three track Sleeping In A Car EP, the band toured North America extensively, selling out venues in major markets across the continent.

They wrapped up the year with the release of The Way Is Read, a collaborative album with New York City chamber ensemble yMusic. Now safely back on British soil, the band are working on their third studio album.
