Smoke Fairies are sometimes many, sometimes few.
Yet the project ultimately hinges on the dynamic, the creative spark between Katherine Blamire and Jessica Davies. Returning with a new - self-titled - album earlier this year, containing some of their deepest, darkest and yet conversely most enriching songcraft to date.
Out now via Full Time Hobby, the drifting summer brings with it a number of live performances. Alongside this, Smoke Fairies have been able to craft a video for album highlight 'Shadow Inversions'.
Directed and produced by Jan Urbanowski, the resulting clip is a vivid encapsulation of the haunting, gothic beauty in the duo's new material.
Portraits of Katherine Blamire and Jessica Davies are distorted across the screen, crafting something colourful, hallucinatory and quite distinct.
Watch it now.
