Darkness Brings the Wonders Home, Smoke Fairies’ hotly anticipated first album in four years, will be released on 31st January 2020. Smoke Fairies (aka Jessica Davies and Katherine Blamire) recorded Darkness Brings The Wonders Home with producer Phil Ek (The Black Angels, Fleet Foxes, The Shins) over the course of a rigorous month-long session in Seattle, drawing inspiration from mysteries both real and imagined: sea monsters, flocks of crows taking flight in extravagant formation, and strange creatures dwelling in the mud near their new South London abode.

“Times of darkness are when people are often the most imaginative,” says Jessica in reflecting on the album’s title. “It helps you to see all the wonders of the world you hadn’t noticed before – the things you’ve been blind to because you’ve been on autopilot for so long.”

Track listing for Darkness Brings the Wonders Home:

  1. On the Wing
  2. Elevator
  3. Disconnect
  4. Coffee Shop Blues
  5. Left to Roll
