Smoke Fairies drop single ‘Chew Your Bones’
Earlier this week, UK duo Smoke Fairies released another single from their upcoming album Darkness Brings The Wonder Home.‘Chew Your Bones’ is an ethereal track that is sure to delight the senses.
The band have worked with producer Phil Ek (The Black Angels, Fleet Foxes, The Shins) on the new record. On the single, Katherine Blamire has explained its essence and inspiration. “I needed to write about the growing feeling that the world is on the verge of real change, there is the sense that there is this scary, unknown future lurking just beyond us.”
“We’d just adopted a cat and were told to keep him inside because the Croydon Cat Killer had just struck in the area. This sanctioned belief of a mythical killer lurking the streets was terrifying and intriguing. At the same time I was reading Sarah Perry’s gothic, Victorian novel ‘The Essex Serpent’ about a fabled beast that stalks the Essex backwaters. Both these tales came together to help me finish the song.”
Darkness Brings The Wonders Home will be out on January 31st.
