Britain’s Smoke Fairies Launch US Tour Following Stellar Debut Album

PopMatters recently said of Smoke Fairies’ debut album Through Low Light and Trees: “The duo’s voices and instruments harmonize in haunting ways that evoke the ethereal spirits from which they take their band’s name. But these sprites are far from being frail creatures. They are comprised of flesh and blood. The Fairies understand that even enchantment can have dangers and that the mystery of the world does not alter the concrete details of living in the material world.” Now the UK band is headed out on a US tour with Rasputina, hitting many major American markets. This is your chance to catch up on one of the finest neo folk groups around. Tour dates and video collection after the jump.
