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 forthcoming new album ‘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.
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 Tereshkova, the first woman in space on ‘The Race For Space’, the second album by Public Service Broadcasting.
They will release their 4th album ‘Darkness Brings The Wonders Home’ on January 31st.
