First Aid Kit – The Lion’s Roar

“The Lion’s Roar” by First Aid Kit has me absolutely speechless.

These two sisters have uncannily powerful voices that ring of soul and candor. The folksy finger-plucked guitar melody carries a slight mournful edge as do their voices, yet there is an overwhelming sense of belligerence as there is a stark edge to their vocals.
In their Dylan-esque story telling, they confess to cowardice while maintaining a bellicose stance and pulling it off at that – no easy feat. Like confessions from the guilty, these two sisters draw forth powerful emotions hidden deep within you.

Listen to “The Lion’s Roar” below and keep an eye out for their LP which is due out on December 5th.
