Reiterating their status as folk music’s rising stars, First Aid Kit release the stunning new single, “Blue”. The sonically beautiful song is driven by glockenspiel and acoustic guitar creating a cozy bed on which the Söderberg sisters’ vocal harmonies lie.
The lyrics, juxtaposed by the light-as-air melody, tell the story of a girl marred by tragedy. The song, however, is laced with hope. The music video, directed by acclaimed Swedish producer, Daniel Wirtberg, is their highest budget video to date and is the perfect visual accompaniment to the song.
First Aid Kit wowed Australian audiences earlier this year with their sold out performances in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Adelaide and plan on returning for the Summer.

“First Aid Kit serve up a pretty shade of piquant indie pop. ‘Blue’ is tasteful, yet sparky.” – Metro (UK)
