Smoke Fairies #5 - We've Seen Birds

Released earlier today "We've Seen Birds" is the second taster from Smoke Fairies third self-titled album (due next month via Full Time Hobby) and finds itself half way between the duo's familiar sound of old and the newer, minimalist approach taken on "Eclipse Them All".

The familiarity of ringing guitars and punching drum beats will be instantly comforting to long-term fans of the duo, crossing the mood, atmosphere and delicious harmonies that brought Smoke Fairies to the attention of many all those years ago (well five or six perhaps?) with the subtle, simpler arrangements and synth heartbeat that promises to bring in a whole new audience. I like the video too.

Smoke Fairies head out tour in support of the album in late May / early June with a date at London's XOYO planned for June 2nd. Tickets.
