First Aid Kit gets self-reflective on its new single “Fireworks”

There’s something special about hearing a new song before a recorded version has been released, and then revisiting it once it does reach public ears. Today we can experience that in the form of First Aid Kit‘s new song “Fireworks,” which the band previewed right here in Philly when they played Free at Noon in October. “Fireworks” follows the first two singles from the XPN perennial fave’s forthcoming album Ruins, “It’s a Shame” and “Postcard.”

If you didn’t catch all of the song’s lyrics when the band played ...

We heard First Aid Kit unveil their new single “Postcard” during last week’s Free at Noon, and now that there’s a recorded version out in the world, we can listen to it on repeat. “Postcard” is the second single from the Swedish folk duo’s just-announced upcoming LP Ruins, following “It’s a Shame.” Ruins, the duo’s fourth full-length and the long-awaited follow-up to 2014’s Stay Gold, will be released January 19, 2018 via Columbia Records.

The warm but melancholy “Postcard” encompasses everything we love ...

It’s been far too long since the sweet sounds of Swedish folk duo First Aid Kit were heard live in Philadelphia. The band — led by sisters Klara and Johanna Söderberg — celebrated the release of their last album Stay Gold with a Union Transfer show in 2014, and shortly after their dazzling 2015 XPN Fest appearance, announced they’d be taking a break before working on new material.

That break ended a few weeks ago, when First Aid Kit let their new single “It’s a Shame” out into the world. ...

XPN’s Gotta Hear Song of the Week: “It’s A Shame” by First Aid Kit

First Aid Kit | photo by Neil Krug | www.neilkrug.com

Swedish sister duo First Aid Kit — Klara and Johanna Söderberg — recently released a new single “It’s a Shame.”

About the song, produced by Tucker Martine, the sisters said in a press release:

We went to Los Angeles last spring and spent five weeks there writing. It was a tough time for the both of us. We were in this beautiful sunny place, but mostly felt sad and lonely. “It’s a Shame” is a song about the emptiness and desperation you feel after a relationship has come to an ...

Swedish sister duo First Aid Kit just released their new single “It’s a Shame,” their first song in three years and first follow-up to the acclaimed Stay Gold. The duo of Johanna and Klara Söderberg has a beautiful, harmony-driven sound similar to that of groups like Joseph and Fleet Foxes; the vocals on “It’s a Shame” are heavenly, fitting perfectly with the mix of acoustic strumming and country-inspired keyboard lines. Take a listen to “It’s a Shame” below, revisit their XPoNential Music Festival appearance here and keep tabs on the band via Facebook.

Ready for another amazing Music Festival this summer? Philadelphia’s own WXPN hosts the XpoNential Music Festival on the Camden Waterfront. The three-day event kicks off July 24th with three stages and thirty performers!

I’m mildly obsessed with J.D. McPherson‘s old school sound.

Madisen Ward and the Mama Bear‘s plucky guitar is fun and folk perfection. Everything about this duo makes me happy.

Dawes get their frowns turned around

and, finally, Vita and the Woolf Jen Pague’s voice is the stuff of dreams.

Listen to the full lineup tease here!
