Single Review – First Aid Kit – Ruins

The title track of their album to be released on Friday (the 19th January), Ruins, drops as the soothing final hint at First Aid Kit’s fourth LP. Glimmering with guitar and soaring with simply gorgeous harmonies, the country-esque ballad deviates somewhat from the more upbeat It’s a Shame, but not too far, pretty much guaranteeing that the track list will flow beautifully. Ruins puts Klara and Johanna’s lush, folky vocals at centre stage, floating laxly on top of the soft and simplistic instrumentalism. Both almost haunting, but also strong and grounded, Ruins is a wonderful track.
