About this item

Smoke Fairies' own fairytale continues to unfold. 2009 saw them tour with Richard Hawley across Britain and be produced by Jack White for a Third Man-released 7”, while this year they were heralded as one of the band’s to see at SXSW and supported Laura Marling in the US.

STAFF COMMENTS

Darryl says: A stunning and enchanting collection from this folk duo. Ethereal and haunting this is on the dark side of traditional folk, think Sandy Denny or Vashti Bunyan but with a left-of-centre twist. Folk album of 2010!
