The Smoke Fairies are Jessica Davies and Katherine Blamire, whose unique mix of American blues & English folk melodies with spectral harmonies have helped cement them as one of the most exciting bands around.

Since their 2010 debut album –“Through Low Light And Trees” – Smoke Fairies have been on an epic journey, both physically and spiritually. Touring Britain, Europe and America; in tour buses, ramshackle vans and even driving themselves 3000 miles across the US, drawing increasingly devoted audiences with their exquisitely original and mesmerising music.

All these experiences bleed from every pore of their brilliant second album, “Blood Speaks” (released May 2012). From the heavyweight humidity of “The Three Of Us” and “Feel It Coming Near”, to the fragile haunts of “Daylight” and “Hideaway” and the sonic adventures of “Film Reel” and the title track, Blood Speaks is 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 a bit more,” says Katherine. “We’ve gotten bolder with the dynamics, and our influences have broadened.”
