The Muse: Smoke Fairies, “Strange Moon Rising”

Videos by American Songwriter

As per the course for song titles that end in “___ Moon Rising,” this Smoke Fairies tune is a slide guitar-led expedition through the marsh. But that’s where Katherine Blamire and Jessica Davies’ debt to traditional blues ends; the languid harmonies are closer to chamber music than back-porch hollering. Plus, blues songs aren’t known for their beautiful middle eights. Strange indeed.
