Smoke Fairies: Chew Your Bones – PREMIERE!

LOUD WOMEN is delighted to bring you the first listen of Smoke Fairies‘ beautiful new single, ‘Chew Your Bones’ – from their forthcoming album ‘Darkness Brings the Wonders Home’.

Jessica Davies and Katherine Blamire aka Smoke Fairies told us more about the track:

“I needed to write about the growing feeling that the world is on the verge of real change, there is the sense that there is this scary, unknown future lurking just beyond us. We’d just adopted a cat and were told to keep him inside because the Croydon Cat Killer had just struck in the area. This sanctioned belief of a mythical killer lurking the streets was terrifying and intriguing. At the same time I was reading Sarah Perry’s gothic, Victorian novel ‘The Essex Serpent’ about a fabled beast that stalks the Essex backwaters. Both these tales came together to help me finish the song.”

Smoke Fairies: Disconnect – video of the day

Today’s video of the day comes from hot-right-now Smoke Fairies – ‘Disconnect’. The moody guitar+drums indierock duo is the first UK act to release a single on guitar+drums fan Jack White’s label, Third Man Records.

Smoke Fairies are old school friends Jessica Davies and Katherine Blamire from Chichester. For their forthcoming album ‘Darkness Brings The Wonders Home’ they traveled to Seattle to record with producer Phil Ek (The Black Angels, Fleet Foxes, The Shins).

Katherine Blamire tells us: “The video was a really simple idea encapsulating how your everyday domestic world gets turned upside down when someone gets inside your head – how your normal world goes slightly askew and there is a sense of strangeness to everything you normally go about doing.”

Listen out for the band on John Kennedy’s Radio X show with an interview and live session on 28January, ahead of a Southern England tour in February.
