I woke up this morning with only one thing I needed to do today and that was listen to the new @firstaidkitband album; Ruins.
The trio of notes that open ‘Rebel Heart’ still linger in my mind as I write this. A stunning way to open the album. I was expecting big things from First Aid Kit and as always, they delivered. With beautiful country tracks like ‘Postcard’ and tracks like ‘Distant Star’ that have almost a Southern Gothic style. There is a little bit of something for everyone.
The stand out tracks for me are either ‘Fireworks’ for the simple fact of how catchy it is. It’s relatable and has some beautiful melodies. Also the albums title track ‘Ruins’ it really is a must listen. If you’re going to name your album after one of the tracks, ‘Ruins’ is a must. It captures the essence of the album and who First Aid Kit are. A fantastic album! #sleevenotes #review #music #ruins #postcards #firstaidkit #FAK #album #country #duo #folk #foreworks
