The relationship is exhausting, there isn’t a manual to follow, and no prayer to swallow. That seems to be the message of “Tired as Fuck” by the Folk Rock trio of sisters performing as The Staves. They are Emily, Jessica, and Camilla Staveley-Taylor from Watford, Hertfordshire, England.
The Staves will be in San Francisco tomorrow (February 20). The Great American Music Hall will host the sisters. Most of their shows are selling out, but there are still tickets for the SF visit (CLICK HERE for info).
“Tired as Fuck” laments the lack of available information for a person leaving a difficult relationship. It begins with almost minimal instrumental support, with the harmonization and lyrics carrying the song. On the other hand, the electric instruments play a major role toward the end. In terms of genre, think pre-1965 Bob Dylan transitioning into Dylan’s electric era.
