Smoke Fairies “Give and Receive”

December 21, 2015

Wild Winter, the new album from the U.K.’s Smoke Fairies has a seasonal/holiday theme. Katherine Blamire and Jessica Davies have said, “We have a love / hate relationship with winter and the Christmas holiday. When it was suggested Smoke Fairies make a Christmas album the last thing we wanted to do was make a classic, jolly, celebratory album that can only be played once a year. Sometimes winter provides us with a sense of togetherness and love and sometimes it leaves us feeling alienated, cold and playing a glockenspiel alone in a darkened room. It’s part of the year that will always be bittersweet and wild. This was the inspiration behind the record.” Here they perform “Give and Receive” from the new record.
