Aided by Bon Iver's Justin Vernon, the sister trio delivers an intimate, emotional gut-punch.
Live performance clip coincides with the release of the trio's sophomore album, If I Was.
Because I’m going to miss you. Because you’re going to pop into my mind on a rainy Sunday evening when Bon Iver is humming in the background and I’ve poured myself a tall glass of wine and a whiff of your old cologne catches me suddenly off guard – lingering in the apartment like an unwanted house guest who was never invited to stay.
