Single Review – First Aid Kit – Postcard

After sharing details of their next full album ‘Ruins’ release, due January 19th 2018, First Aid Kit release new single ‘Postcard’. A slow tempo ghost of a country classic, with crisp warm slide guitar and the kind of rhythm that brings to mind rusted wheels rattling around on some canvas covered wagon. There might not be anything outrageously new about ‘Postcard’, not with it seeming straight out of a episode of little house on the prairie, but like a familiar blanket wrapped around you in a dust-bowl barn dance, lines like; ‘I went and broke my own goddamned heart,’ are enough to capture you under Klara and Johanna Söderberg’s enchanting spell once again.
