The latest from UK alt-folk duo Smoke Fairies is inspired by feelings of loss and grief, but that doesn't mean the song isn't an enjoyable listen. Loss is audible in "Vanishing Line." It's not a cheery song by any means. But Smoke Fairies have filled the song with a warmth that is almost able to be physically felt. There is a sense of loss, but also the feelings involved with coming out of that loss with loved ones. It's painful, but also hopeful. "Vanishing Line" is an absolutely gorgeous, if painful, song that is going to end up on more than one best of the year lists.
You can watch the video for "Vanishing Line" below. Carried In Sound is due out November 17, and is available for pre-order here. For more on Smoke Fairies, check out the artist on Facebook and Instagram.
