Video: The Staves - Teeth White

The Staves' new single is not, Jessica has pointed out, an ode to dentistry.

Instead, Teeth White is "a bit of a two fingers up to people," she told the Nottingham Post (where else?).

"It's about the frustrations sometimes aimed at the industry, and the difficulty of moving at someone else's pace." her sister Emily added. "And it's also about being girls and not getting the credit we'd get for the music if we were male."

It's also a bloody good song - a rollicking, Beatles-y stomp that's one of the highlights of the band's second album, If I Was. And now it has a video, filmed in a swanky Parisian nightclub for what were presumably unimpeachable creative and financial reasons.

The Staves go on tour this October, finishing up with a show at the Roundhouse. If you haven't seen them live yet, I'd highly reccommend it.
