Smoke Fairies To Release New Album:
Darkness Brings The Wonders Home Out January 31st, 2020
New Single 'Disconnect' Out Today
 

September 25, 2019, New York NY:  Smoke Fairies have announced the release their first album in four years. Darkness Brings The Wonders Home will be released on January 31st, 2020.
 
Smoke Fairies are Jessica Davies and Katherine Blamire who first met at school in their native England. For this LP they traveled to Seattle to record Darkness Brings The Wonders Home with producer Phil Ek (The Black Angels, Fleet Foxes, The Shins) and over the course of a rigorous month-long session in Seattle, adopted a purposely intimate approach to achieving a singular sonic tone.

In the making of Darkness Brings The Wonders HomeSmoke Fairies drew inspiration from mysteries both real and imagined: sea monsters, flocks of crows taking flight in extravagant formation, strange creatures dwelling in the mud near their new South London abode.

“Times of darkness are when people are often the most imaginative,” says Jessica Davies in reflecting on the album’s title. “It helps you to see all the wonders of the world you hadn’t noticed before - the things you’ve been blind to because you’ve been on autopilot for so long.”
 
The new album Darkness Brings The Wonders Home is available to pre-order now.
 
To mark the day, the first single taken from the album 'Disconnect' will be available today on streaming services world wide. Katherine Blamire talking specifically about the harmonic and spiky riffed track: “It is a song about the idea of switching off your emotions - It's hard to settle and commit to one person.  Meaningless encounters are so normal that it can leave you foolish when you desire something more from someone. I'd come across someone who gave the impression they didn't need love, and made it look so simple. It's a show I've acted out before, but it hurts when you're on the rejected side. Teach me to disconnect so I can go along with this and be cool with not needing love in return.”

Smoke Fairies were the first UK act to release a single on Jack White's label Third Man Records and was produced by White who also played guitar and drums. Other notable recordings include a cover of Neil Young’s Alabama’  from his Harvest LP which appeared on a special Mojo album to mark the approaching fortieth anniversary of the album.  Jessica and Katherine also contributed vocals to the track Valentina', a tribute to Valentina Tereshkovathe first woman in space on The Race For Space, the second album by Public Service Broadcasting.  The band has toured this side of the Atlantic with Laura MarlingRasputinaBlitzen Trapper and Dawes. More U.S. shows to be announced at a later date.
