In episode #161 of The XS Noize Podcast, Mark Millar meets Katherine Blamire and Jessica Davies from Smoke Fairies to discuss their new album, "Carried In Sound."

Smoke Fairies is a project founded on friendship. Katherine Blamire and Jessica Davies have known one another since they were kids, forming a band to escape the humdrum of high school. On their new album, Carried In Sound, the duo prove themselves to be self-reliant, moving through a pandemic, home recording, and demonstrating true independence to forge something utterly faithful to their ambitions.

In this interview, Katherine and Jessica talk about writing and recording Carried in Sound, becoming the first UK band to sign with Jack White's Third Man label, touring with Bryan Ferry, 80s guilty pleasures and lots more. Listen to episode #161 of The XS Noize Podcast with Smoke Fairies – BELOW:
