First Aid Kit, aka: the lovely sisters Klara and Johanna Soderberg, have just released the official video for their stunning new track “The Lion’s Roar”. The single is the title track off their forthcoming album set for realease on the 5th December 2011 via Wichita Records, produced by Mike Mogis.
For video: see here.
The two sisters are currently supporting Lykke Li on her UK tour, and are planning to return to Bush Hall for a headline show on Tuesday 6th December.
For Tickets: see here.
The new album is the follow up to their 2010 debut album ‘The Big Black and the Blue’. Recorded in the US, the new album contrasts sadness and beauty within the traditions of folk and country music. With references of Stockholm (their home town) and long dark Scandinavian winters, the pair have combined traditional folk with a backdrop of beautiful country-rock swing.
All of us here at FFS look forward to the new release, and for those of you too eager to wait, a sneak peek of the album awaits you on Wichita Records’ SoundCloud.
Words: Ellie Rumbold.
