Soot Sprite’s new single ‘It’s Summer and I Don’t Feel Like Smiling’ is out now.

Do you know what a ‘soot sprite’ is? They are fictitious sprites that were created by Hayao Miyazaki, drawn by Studio Ghibli, and feature in the famous anime-productions My Neighbor Totoro and Spirited Away. Mad. I’ve seen both those films and don’t remember those critters! Soot Sprite is also the name of a dream pop trio from Exeter led by Elise Cook. Their latest track ‘It’s Summer and I Don’t Feel Like Smiling’ is a mournful and charming number that calls to mind the best of dream pop sounds from the early ’90s. We dig. Check it out below.
