New Music: First Aid Kit - It's A Shame
This one has already been all over the big sites, but just in case like me you’ve been busy and are playing catch up, here’s the new song from Sweden’s finest country band First Aid Kit.
Klara and Johanna Söderberg know how to write a song don’t they?
It’s A Shame might sound like a breezily uplifting piece of Americana, but delve a little deeper and running through it you’ll find a vein of sadness as the sisters sing of being in sunny LA yet ‘the sun’s too bright, I cannot get it right, the emptiness I feel, and now none of it seems real.’
Following their glorious performance at Glastonbury earlier this year, which confirmed First Aid Kit as one of the most talented young bands you can possibly hear, the band return to the UK for a one-off show at Shoreditch town hall on November 1st, which has already sold out. It's A Shame paves the way for a new First Aid Kit album.
