New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
Smoke Fairies have surprised fans by releasing an exclusive and unheard new track 'No Matter How This Goes, Just Make Sure That You're Kind.' Recorded with producer Phil Ek in Seattle last year for their recent critically acclaimed Darkness Brings
The Wonders Home album, the track was initially held back. However, the band, Jessica
Davies & Katherine Blamire, feel the song to be so pertinent to the current world health crisis they wanted to share its message of love.
explains "There was something about this track that was more extreme and it wasn't fitting the mood of the album for some reason. This song was written with a strong sense of foreboding. We know we were not alone in feeling that something big was creeping up on us all, something that would require strength, bravery and kindness. It now seems this track makes sense and we wanted to share it because no matter how this situation goes we are certain that if we just feed it love, good will conquer."
Smoke Fairies have certainly been keeping busy, this week they sit at # 1 in both the physical and vinyl Official UK Singles Charts with 'Elevator' a Limited-Edition 7" picture disc. This follows the album hitting #1 in the Rock Album Charts at the start of February. Forced to abandon live plans to celebrate the release of "Elevator
" by playing a series of intimate in-store shows and signings the band moved their single launch on-line and managed to raise money for the Red Cross in the process.
Building on that success Smoke Fairies have announced a second online show, for this Friday April 17th via their Facebook channel and will be donating any donations for that performance to The RSPCA conscious of the dip in donations to some charities at the current time. The band play via www.facebook.com/smokefairies at 8pm UK/3pm EST.
