First Aid Kit share new single “Fireworks”: Stream

From the Swedish sisters' forthcoming album, Ruins


First Aid Kit are set to return with their new album, Ruins, on January 19th. The Swedish sisters have thus far shared the album tracks “It’s a Shame” and “Postcards”, and now they’re back with a third preview, “Fireworks”.

Don’t be fooled by that title, however, as this isn’t some sort of explosive folk-pop romper. Instead, it’s a ballad recalling sad songs of the ’70s, mourning a love as you begin to feel it fade away (just like the dying light of an firework, see?). “Why do I do this to myself every time?” asks the chorus. “I know the way it ends before it’s even begun/ I am the only one at the finish line.”

Take a listen below.
