Smoke Fairies have released the visuals for new single Elevator. The video was filmed in Margate on England’s south coast at the very eccentric Walpole Bay Hotel and Tom Thumb Theatre prior to recent social distancing measures in the UK.
The track is taken from Darkness Brings the Wonders Home, Smoke Fairies’ first album in four years and the first to come out on the band’s own label, Year Seven Records. The album was released at the start of the year and has seen some remarkable chart positions for a band operating under their own steam (#1 UK album in Rock and a #6 in the Independent Album Charts).
The band have sadly been forced to abandon live plans to celebrate the release of Elevator, where they were set to play a series of intimate in-store shows and signings. But they have announced to fans that they will be taking the show online and have requested if people can do so that donations will be shared with the independent record shops they were due to appear at (Resident Records in Brighton, Vinilo in Southampton, and London’s Level Crossing Records). The live performance from Smoke Fairies’ home in South East London will take place on Friday 3 April at 2000 BST on the band’s facebook profile. Check there also for autumn tour dates taking place around the UK.
