Sweden may be producing some of the best pop music in the world, but it does a fine job with country and folk as well, via First Aid Kit. The Lion’s Roar, the duo’s second record was released at the start of the year but its American country sound has not been forgotten. From this record comes a new single - Blue.
There’s something despairing but beautiful about the Söderberg sisters harmonies and they soundtrack this video of a wealthy lady who seemingly lives alone and lonely in an opulent mansion perfectly. “You’re just a shell of your former youth” they sing, the song both gentle, sad and soul-stirring at the same time.
