Swedish twee-folk outfit First Aid Kit released their second LP, Lion's Roar in the U.K. today and will be released tomorrow in the U.S. on 1/24. The final track of the album "King of the World" has been released in advance and features vocal work from Bright Eyes frontman Conor Oberst.
Soaring harmonies and a mind-burrowing guitar piece make this a stand out track. Fans of The Weepies or Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros should take a listen to this track with its old school folk sensibilities and gorgeous vocals matched with a darker lyrical dissonance that makes for an instantly engaging single.
The Lion's Roar is out tomorrow on Wichita. And be sure to check out some of our work with the band.
