The Staves: Tired as Fudge

Step aside, Katy Perry, you're not the only one with a new single today. The Staves are here, and they are... er, a little sleepy.

Tired As Fuck is a song they've been playing live for a while now, that's going to feature heavily on their upcoming North American tour. In an email to fans, the Stavely-Taylor sisters explained it thusly: "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."

Sparse, sorrowful and tinged with the blues, the song eventually bursts into a killer guitar solo; while the video focuses (sometimes uncomfortably) on a close-up of Camilla, leaving in all the awkward pauses and asides that people normally edit out of videos. It's quite captivating in full screen.

Tired As Fuck is backed by another new song, Train Tracks and you can hear both tracks on a streaming service near you now.
