London-based alt-folk duo Smoke Fairies have just announced a brief Christmas tour of independent record stores in England, supporting their seasonal album ‘Wild Winter’, which will be sold exclusively on CD and LP in Rough Trade record stores. The pair says of their take on the traditional Christmas album:
We have a love/hate relationship with winter and the Christmas holiday. When it was suggested Smoke Fairies make a Christmas album the last thing we wanted to do was make a classic, jolly, celebratory album that can only be played once a year. Sometimes winter provides us with a sense of togetherness and love and sometimes it leaves us feeling alienated, cold and playing a glockenspiel alone in a darkened room. It’s part of the year that will always be bittersweet and wild. We got together with our band, played around with the songs a few times then headed off to the studio to record them all live. It’s buzzy and raw and not one tinkling of sleigh bells can be heard.
You can stream the album’s first track, ‘Christmas Without a Kiss’, below the tour date listing. Pre-orders for the album and tickets for the following shows are available from Rough Trade here.
Tuesday 9th December 2014 – Bristol Rise
Wednesday 10th December 2014 – Nottingham Rough Trade
Friday 12th December 2014 – London Rough Trade East (with DJ Bob Stanley)
