New Album by First Aid Kit Due Out Jan 24

first aid kitSwedish sisters Klara and Johanna Söderberg are releasing their sophomore full-length album as First Aid Kit, The Lion's Roar (Wichita Recordings), next week. Aside from being beautiful, they're also young, talented, and strongly influenced by American country music.

First Aid Kit gained attention in 2008 on YouTube with their cover of a Fleet Foxes song (looking very, very young) and they released their debut full-length album, The Big Black and The Blue (Wichita Recordings, 2009), at the tender ages of 17 and 19. We were fortunate enough to have First Aid Kit do a Green Room Session at Amoeba Hollywood when they were supporting The Big Black and The Blue.

Their new album, The Lion's Roar, was recorded in Omaha, Nebraska with Mike Mogis (of Bright Eyes) and again capitalizes on the beauty of their harmonies. Like many of their songs, the title track begins quietly with a single voice and builds to their harmonies on the chorus. "The Lion's Roar" is a strong opener for the album, with a passionate chorus:

"...and I'm a goddman coward but then again so are you. And the lions roar, the lions roar."
