Posts Tagged ‘80s prom’

January 9, 2018

Swedish folk troupe First Aid Kit, a favorite of ours for such a long time, have been drumming up a fresh new flood of buzz lately with the songs they’ve revealed from their next album Ruins. Much of the music we’ve heard so far from the album have been extra rustic compared to some of their prior material, but new song Fireworks takes a bit of a turn. It’s a melting dream pop flavored canticle, accompanied by a heavily nostalgic video that pays tribute to the 80s with its idyllic prom setting. Fireworks is without a doubt my favorite new FAK song off Ruins so far, a Beach House meets Lykke Li styled ambler with ample pastoral charm. I’ve been melting away to it since its trademark First Aid Kit harmonies came to light last Friday, and now you can, too. Ruins arrives January 19th, pre-order, here.
