Smoke Fairies have released the best seasonal album of 2015 with Wild Winter. They avoid all the usual sentimental traps and over-warmed chestnuts of Christmas music. Instead, this introspective and evocative English duo explores personal themes of the season, lost love, dysfunctional families, religious ambiguity and seasonal sadness. That sounds dark, but Wild Winter is actually incredibly beautiful. Smoke Fairies talk about their unique take on Christmas and how they’ve been together since age twelve.
