Album: Smoke Fairies, Blood Speaks (V2)


At its best, the music of former Sussex schoolfriends Jessica Davies and Katherine Blamire is a swirling and seductive stew of early Jefferson Airplane and the Indigo Girls.

Though less folky than their 2010 debut, Blood Speaks sticks to the harmonies and arpeggios formula that made their Jack White-produced "Gastown" single so memorable, but there's always a suspicion that these girls are just too wholesome for their spooky vocals to be truly to haunting.
