Now Playing: First Aid Kit – 'Ruins'

Tuesday, February 6, 2018

First Aid Kit is back with a new single to heal all your broken hearts. 'Ruins' is soft and simple, full of bittersweet lyrics and minimal production. In recent years, the Swedish duo, comprised of sisters Johanna and Klara Söderberg, have built a reputation around their sorrowful sounds.

Taken from their fourth studio album, the title track 'Ruins' is reflective of moving on from a painful break-up. The single is packed full of memories and metaphors, mixed together to form an introspective look towards the future.

'Ruins' showcases everything we love about First Aid Kit, from its sweet harmonies to the powerful lyrics the track is grounded in simplicity. Using heavy folk influence, ‘Ruins’ is the perfect song to play in the background as you finally delete that ex’s number.
