Smoke Fairies Blood Speaks on LP
Venerated producer Head returned for British dream pop duo Smoke Fairies' 2012 album, Blood Speaks, and their live band was also drafted in adding their intuitive version of the duo's evolving sound. Praised by everyone from Jack White to new wave pioneer Gary Numan, the Fairies had been gaining stateside attention for their early singles and EPs, and their debut Through Low Light And Trees in 2011.
Jessica Davies and Katherine Blamire were on an epic journey at the time, both physically and spiritually, touring Britain, Europe and America; in buses, ramshackle vans, and driving themselves 3000 miles across the US, all the while drawing increasingly devoted audiences with their exquisitely original and mesmerizing music. All these experiences bleed from every pore of Blood Speaks, undeniable proof of a tougher and more fearless Smoke Fairies.
"We've got more confident in what we're doing, and so we've pushed things more," explained Katherine. "We've gotten bolder with the dynamics, and our influences have broadened."
