Swedish folk-pop duo First Aid Kit made big waves around the world in 2012 when haunting single “Wolf” caught the attention of indie bloggers and alternative radio stations. The Söderberg sisters are now gearing up to release their third LP Stay Gold (due June 10 in the US) and just unveiled the video for sublime lead single “My Silver Lining”.
It’s hard to image a more lush or evocative summer soundtrack than First Aid Kit’s latest anthem. Drenched in strings, “My Silver Lining” is true to the band’s folk roots but their canvas is now a little broader musically and that chorus/those gorgeous harmonies could well find a home on pop radio. I certainly hope so. Watch the moody, sun-dappled video up top.
