Smoke Fairies Announce Virtual Gig & Release 'Elevator' Video
Smoke Fairies have released a new video for their single 'Elevator.' The track will also be available as a Limited-Edition 7" picture disc on Friday April 3rd. 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.

Darkness Brings the Wonders Home, Smoke Fairies' widely acclaimed first album in four years and the first to come out on the band's own label, Year Seven Records, was released January 31st and has seen some remarkable chart positions for a band operating as a fully independent venture (#1 UK album in Rock and a #6 on the Independent Album Charts).Originally to celebrate the release of 'Elevator', the band was going to play a series of intimate in-store shows and signings but now they'll be playing an intimate living room performance. "In the spirit that the show must go on, at 8pm London time on release day April 3rd we'll be doing a live online show via our facebook page. It's us, playing for you, from our living room on release day so wherever you are cooped up in the world you will be able to join us for this show. Along with this we've set-up a paypal-me address to generate some support for the record stores we would have been playing at. https://www.paypal.me/smokefairies.
We've never done a virtual gig before. Expect it to be strange and we hope we'll see you there."
