Smoke Fairies - The Social, London - Thursday November 13th:  https://www.roughtrade.com/gb/events/rough-trade-east-smoke-fairies

The band recently 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.

The band also recently announced a UK tour with US plans to be announced soon.
