Long-time Clash favourites Smoke Fairies have signalled their return.
The band's hypnotic songwriting matches sugar-sweet elements to moments of visceral sound, producing a quite singular catalogue.
Jack White is a fan - a noted advocate for their music, he signed them to Third Man Records and got them onstage during his 2015 performance at the Grammy Awards.
Silent for too damn long, if you ask us, Smoke Fairies cruise back into our lives with potent new single 'Disconnect'.
Sharply defined while retaining its mystery, it's clad in glamorous black, a kind of gothic, folk-rock mixture.
Full album 'Darkness Brings The Wonders Home' lands on January 31st, with Jessica Davies commenting:
“Times of darkness are when people are often the most imaginative. 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.”
Check out 'Disconnect' below.
