At the very beginning of the year, folk rock duo First Aid Kit released their fourth studio album Ruins. It’s been a while, so maybe you’ve forgotten about. Perhaps this year’s heavy release schedule has distracted you from listening to it consistently. Well, it’s time to be reminded of how great that record is, and also how great First Aid Kit are as performers. Klara and Johanna Söderberg headed over to Spotify’s studios to whip up a fantastic little recording session as part of their Spotify Singles series, and now it’s up for you to stream.
As per the general rule of Spotify’s Singles series, the band performed a track from their new album alongside a cover of another artist. First Aid Kit opted to play Ruins highlight “Fireworks,” in an absolutely gorgeous rendition. But as is the case with these things, the real showstopper is their excellent cover track. The duo took on Kate Bush’s “Running Up That Hill,” and well, you really need to give it a listen. In short, First Aid Kit remain a captivating act. Head right here to stream their Spotify Singles session.
